Drivin' Us Buggy

This is the time of year for lots of insects in Oklahoma - getting them off the windshield is easy - however under the windshield on the paint - another story. Have tried bug softners and other products but the bug remains are really stubborn. Any solutions without scratching the paint??

Yes, I use car wax, apply and let it dry, they come off fairly easy plus the front gets a wax job.

Use soft cheap paste wax, and wax them off. Leave some wax piled up on tough spots and it will soften them and the whole process keeps the front end always waxed ready for the next layer of bugs

Drier sheets work great,Kate wets the front and goes to it and when shes done I wash it with car wash soap. Give it some wax when done and then get ready to do it again. Jim

I spray the front with Pledge Furniture polish. I suspect any type would work, that's just the one I use. I read in here that pilots use it on the leading edge of their planes wings. Good enough for me.

Magic Eraser. It is a sponge thing that works great to get the bugs off.
