Default Cleaning Brake Fluid from Paint?

I have brake fluid leaking in the engine bay and it's on some of the paint in the engine bay. What should I use to clean it off? Is it ok to use brake cleaner?

I still need to locate the source of the leak. I don't know the whole brake system in the B8 that well. It might even be something with the clutch that's leaking as I haven't taken time to look at it thoroughly yet. When I came home last night I noticed a spot on the road where I park the car. After parking I took a look and noticed fluid all over on the drivers side of the engine bay in the area of the brake master and/or clutch master. Fluid levels are still ok so I don't think it's a catastrophic failure, but more likely a slow leak that has now accumulated to make it look bad. I want to get it cleaned up, so I can isolate the leak location and fix it and hopefully save the painted areas.
