Overlay app fluid leaving marks on paintwork ?

I have done a van this morning and used overlay to apply the shadow to the lettering, the problem I now have is the fluid has left streaks down the paintwork and no matter what I try I cant seem to shift them. Can anyone offer any advice ?

Thanks

Bob

Or Maybe use the app fluid again to clean?

I've had this problem with overlay as well, I was lucky enough to spot it happening before it became really bad so I used a cloth soaked in overlay to wipe it off.
I know use Rapid Tac (original?)

I was one of the first users of Overlay fluid when it came out.

It was bloody useless, stank to high heaven and seemed to mess up some vinyl glues.

For application fluid use a few drops of baby shampoo in water. This works very well and leaves no residue. Have you ever seen baby with pink streaks? !!
