Daily bug removal.....

So I live in a somewhat rural area and get quite a bit of bug guts and little corpses on a daily basis. I have a white car so its pretty noticeable, not to mention not good for my paint. Is there something on the market that I can use on a daily basis to remove them? Maybe like a spray and wipe type thing. I don't want to have to pull out the hose every night when I get home from the office.

If you use a good wax on your car, any decent spray detailer will easily remove the bug guts by simply spraying it on liberally, waiting a few minutes, and wiping it off. Many here swear by Adams products, which are great... but Mothers, Meguiars, or other quick detail sprays will work just as well for easily removing bugs from your bumper, mirrors and windshield on a daily basis. The key is to keep a good coat of wax on it so they don't "bond" to the paint and will wipe off easily. Just keep a few microfiber towels and your quick detailer spray of your choice in the trunk. That's what i do.

North Texas? Me too!


Yeah that's great advice above. Nothing really to add, other than it's imperative to get the bugs off ASAP, as their guts are acidic and can etch the paint very quickly.

Talk to INTIMIDAT3R on here he has a great bug screen that goes on and off real good. Not sure where he bought it.
