Thumbs down bug guts...how to remove properly

Hey Guys,

I'm heading out today for the Punisher's first washing. He has some bug guts on the front. . .

On my work car I just use one of those sponges with a net on it to scrub off the guts. . . I am afraid this will mark up the paint on the Camaro.

What's your best advice on how to get them off with out scrubbing to hard and making marks in the paint?

Make sure it is wet when you use it.It works great and will not scratch up your paint.

Any of the quick detailers will work and a cotton towel. I use Mothers Showtime quick detailer.

Use fabric softener sheets (for your laundry) on wet paint- works like a charm and doesn't leave a mark!!!!

The Pinnacle "sponge" which is really not a sponge at all, is the way to go. Upon first use, you're thinking "there's no way it doesn't scratch the sh!t outta my paint." But... it won't. Do it while washing and use some soapy water with it. It's the bomb.
