New discovery for removing bugs

I have tried many things for removing bugs from the front of my motor home, dryer sheets work pretty well, but are difficult for me to deal with. I tried liquid fabric softener, that was useless. Today I tried something else that works great -- liquid Calgon WATER SOFTENER. Not the Calgon bath powder but the liquid stuff in a white bottle that some of us use in our holding tanks. It is found in the laundry detergent aisle in the supermarket. I put one capful in about 2 gallons of water . I used an extra soft brush on a long pole, dipped the brush in the bucket. A couple of swipes with the brush and the bugs were gone. This is the easiest thing I've ever used to remove dried, baked on bugs. I I thought I'd pass it along to you guys.

I use Rejex all the time on my entire MH including windows. Nothing sticks to it but the shine.

Cliff, another vote here for the Rejex! I use it on the front of the MH but have never tried it on the windshield. Do they recommend doing that?

Do either of those help remove the white streaks going down the windshields?

At your local auto parts store look for something labeled "glass stripper" or "glass polish." Should be in with the glass cleaner section. Comes in a 8 ounce or so bottle. It is like an extremely fine rubbing compound. Will clean the glass of all of the gunk.

The best way to eliminate bugs is DON'T HIT ANY.
I wax the front windshield with 0000 steel wool as the applicator, it seems to work well. The bugs don't stick as much.
