What do I use to get fly poop off painted surfaces

We live on a farm with livestock and it is not actually fly"poop" as they call it, I think it is actually their spit up. And the "spit up" is on my outside doors to the house? My door is painted and I have tried 409, dawn and vinegar water so far and it has just lightened it. Any help out there without the jokes. I do not want to damage the painted door.

  • I'm not sure how to get the flecks off the door, but once you do, you might want to get one of those outside traps that the flies buzz into and can't escape from. My ex and I used one at our back door when we were blessed enough to have the apartment right next to the dumpser, and it worked wonders. We got it at a farm supply store.

  • Magic eraser?
    Sounds like it might be stains.
