Has anyone found a windshield cleaner that really works for bugs?

Best so far has been sudsy amonia and a few drops of dish soap.

Bugs N All works real well. It also leaves a rain x like finish that helps for future bugs. on Amazon

Drug store peroxide. Buy the cheap stuff. Spray it on and watch the bugs foam up. Can also be used on the front of the rv.

morning chore

Had a flash of insight this last trip, bought a spray bottle of windex and sprayed the windshield each morning, scrubbing off the previous days bugs using my extended handle squeege, as one of my get'er going chores. Always used a bucket and soap before. What a difference. Six weeks of travel used up most of the bottle.

Dead bugs a dried bug juice easily wipe right off.

This Norwex kitchen scrub cloth with pure unadulterated warm water on the end of your wash pole is THE Best Bug Remover I've found in years. It won't bother the wax Finnish and it peels bugs off easily.
It has to be this Blue one.
They also make a pink coloured window cloth that is excellent for washing the windows inside using just water.

I keep a covered bucket (tidy cat litter container works well) with a combination of bug wash with a little car wash soap in our storage bay. The suds keep the windsheild moist longer to soften the bug splat. We have a washer pad/squeegee on a telescoping poll that we use for washing the windsheild. We also have a second bucket for plain rinse water and a soft brush. The soapy bucket gets returned to the storage bay and the plain water gets used on any mud splatter on the lower sides of the coach.
I developed this system during "love bug" season since we were having to stop every half hour to clean off the windsheild to see the roadway. Dryer sheets work well on the painted areas that you can reach by hand.

I've always liked Invisible Glass with a crumpled up newspaper end roll. It's worked great for me in the past with just a little elbow grease tossed in there.
