Rejex - Rejected!

I finally tried Rejex just before our recent trip. I applied it on the front of the RV using their instructions. I put on 2 coats just for a little extra protection. We just got back from a 400 mile trip to central Florida and I rinsed the front off this morning after letting it sit and gather dew all night.
Their slogan "Nothing sticks but the shine" isn't true for me.
The bugs may just rinse off but the residue stays.
Note: We are post love bug season here.
After the bottle is finished it'll be back to my old standby Nu Finish.

I've been using Rejex for a long time. I think it's being a little optimistic to just try to rinse the bugs off. I blast them with a water hose and then finish the job with a little soap & water! Works for me!

For heavy bug stains, use a plastic scrub pad after the front cap has soaked in soapy water.

Nothing touches the exterior of my coach except a soft bristle brush or a soft car wash mitt. No plastic will ever touch my coach.
Some bugs will leave residue water just won't rinse away. Miracles are only in movies.
A pail of warm water and some RV wash detergent will get the job done with a little hand work.

Spray the bug guts with some drug store peroxide and let it sit for a few minutes.

The bugs will foam up and rinse off.

Peroxide will not hurt the finish.

I think the bugs in our neck of the woods eat Epoxy.

I didn't really expect a miracle but after reading several previous posts about how great Rejex was and how some simply rinsed the bugs off with a hose. Add the Rejex slogan that "Nothing Sticks But The Shine" I thought it was worth a try.
My old Nu Finish has always had the same results as my recent experience with Rejex.
Considering the same effort to really remove the bug splatter and the cost:
Rejex $21.50 Amazon Prime
Nu Finish $7.94 Amazon Prime
I can buy almost 3 bottles of Nu Finish for the cost of 1 Rejex.
Add to that the Nu Finish can be applied even in the hot sun so I don't have to wait for a cloudy, cool day here in Florida.
We all have our favorites. That's just my observation.

Nu Finish is outdated.
Maybe try some of this on top of the Rejex:

I put Rejex on the leading surfaces and I use a damp rag to wipe off the bugs at the end of a day of traveling. Works for me.

Water and fingernails for bugs. Cheap and will never scratch.
Nu Finish does work, cheap and lasts a year. My 13 year old Accord still shines like new sitting outside in TX.

Over 45 years of waxing and polishing different vehicles and RV's, I've tried dozens of different products, including Rejex. I wax my coach (lower half) at least 6 times a year and the upper half twice a year. Every time I've waxed my coach(s) I was always kept a mental note of how long it lasted. After trying all the different brands, I also found NuFinish, was easy to buy (Walmart), easy to apply and has lasted as long or longer than all of the other miracle brands.

I've tried so many waxes that that I had to start making additional space for them in the garage. In the last year or two, I've whittled them down. I take the liquid waxes, warm them up, mix them together and use them until they're gone. This way I'm not wasting money and it cleans out my wax cupboard.

The only REAL way to keep your coach shiny is to wax it often. I wax my front 3M mask before every trip. After it starts to get buggy, on a trip, I wax the bugs off and start all over again.

Try 303 Quick Car Detailer with UV... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0185PU36C...p_mob_ap_share

I put two coats on before my three month trip 8500 miles and a recent trip to Key West FL. I was able to hose everything off to include love bugs.

I have been using old dryer sheets to clean the bug stuff off the front of cars and trucks for years. I use it on the front of my trailer and the truck and it doesn't scratch anything but the bug stuff does come off with a lot less scrubbing.
I also use Rejex on the front of the trailer and the bug stuff did come off easier with the dryer sheet than before but I washed it the day we got home and we did run thru a lot of rain on the coast on our last trip.
