Soak well, leave to soften, soak again, then clean.
Shampoo can/should be ok but personally I'm not overly keen on chemicals/APCs for this sort of thing because it is quite easy to remove any protection and can mark/stain any paint nearby although it appears good at dealing with the green stuff. Not so bad if you are re-polishing anyway but it is extra work otherwise.
I prefer to pressure wash off after soaking but if you do use a brush be careful around where the rubber meets any paint because scrubbing can scratch because there is usually grit in the green..
