Best method to clean black oxidation dust

Just had my Sovereign professionally polished. The company who polished the trailer was able to clean most of the black oxidation dust, but there is still quite a bit around the windows and trim work. I was curious what others have used to clean/remove this dust. The company recommended that I spray water to remove the black dust around dusk. This morning I used mineral spirits and that seemed to work pretty well, but I'm wondering if that's the best way.

Mineral spirits works well. Also lacquer thinner. I have washed my entire trailer with diesel fuel after polishing and then washed the residue off with Dawn dishwashing detergent.
I suspect every one has developed their own method
