How do you remove grease marks from a matt painted carbon frame?
I'm guessing that the surface is porous because of the lack of clear coat, up to now i've tried wipes, WD, 3 in 1 and hot soapy water.

    Oil wont remove grease so 3 in 1 and WD40 will only make things worse if anything.

    Try a citrus degreaser or proper bike cleaner. Car Wash shampoo should also do the trick.

    Big Wipes (the brand not the type)
    I have seen them in Halfords and Tesco etc
