Default porch cleaning

hello,

I own a condo and have a porch that i just recently stained. There is metal fencing around the porch that is painted a tan color. I got some stain on the fencing, what is the best way to remove the stain but not damaging the paint?

I'd try "Goo be Gone" or similar substance.

Try finger nail polish remover. Can't think of the name of the product you can buy in bulk.
