Scrub Daddy?

We use a Scrub Daddy all the time in the kitchen and love it! I wondered if it would not be good to remove bugs from the front of the MH. I looked on their website and found that auto exterior paint is on their approved list of surfaces. Just to be safe, I sent them a message asking the same question. They assured me that it is safe for auto paint!

I'm going to try it. I'll let you know!

They are great for that on fiberglass trailer caps!

Hummm. Interesting product. I usually use my thumb or fingernail while washing the front of the RV to remove bug guts, but that method makes my wife go: "Eeewwww!"

Ok, guys. Be honest. Are you going to use the kitchen Scrub Daddy on the bugs while your wife isn't looking? You know, like when you grab a knife out of the silverware drawer because it's quicker and easier than going to the garage for a screwdriver?

I keep the front waxed and the bugs come off easily. I clean them off when the days driving is finished. I would never use any abrasive item to remove bugs.



In the past I used a grapefruit cut in quarters to get the bugs off the airplane wings. Wipe the juice on, let set for a few minutes and wipe off with wet towel.

A trick us motorcycle riders use for bug removal is simple , no scrubbing , no chemicals and no fruit is abused in the process.

Wet a towel with hot water and place over the surface , glass , fiberglass or whatever , that you want to clean the bugs off of.

Go have a cup of your favorite beverage , come back about 10 - 15 min. later and simply wipe off the bug remains.

The motels on the way to the Sturgis Rally put stacks of old towels outside the rooms for use . They were not happy with us using their bath towels.

Never tried a Scrub Daddy. We use wetted Bounce sheets. Cleans em right off. I think anything abrasive on a regular basis could be detrimental.

The Scrub Daddy is very hard when dry, but becomes very soft when wet. That's why I thought it might be good to remove bugs.

Here where the state bird is the love bug, we use fabric softener sheets. Wet the surface and let sit a few minutes, then scrub with softener sheets. Then use water and a sponge the wash away the white stuff the softener sheets leave behind.
