I used the dryer sheet trick, as per everyone, to get ride of bugs. I was displeased when I found an ass-load of fine scratches in the paint. It was on black paint if that matters, and i used cold water to soak it not hot.


Thoughts?

I never heard of that trick to remove bugs. It sounds like a bad idea. Similar to when I used the green side of a sponge to remove tint adhesive from my rear window. Oh man that sucked.

To remove bugs I use Fast Wax. They come off instantly with Zero scratches.


Here Is my Thread about FastWax

Fast Wax is only available thru certain vendors. Porche, and other expensive car dealerships sometimes push a couple cans onto a first time buyer...

I found a vendor on ebay with super cheap prices, but long ass shipping...

This maybe embarassing to most guys here, but just go to the store and buy a pair of pantyhose. The cashiers might look at you like you're a crossdresser but I tell them it takes bird poop off of my car really well.

Bugs are a pretty bad problem around my area. I just use a can of Tuff-Stuff upholstery cleaner. Just spray it all over the bugs on the car and let it sit for about 2 minutes then just rinse it off and the bugs just come right off. It won't scratch your paint and it's conveniently sold at wal-mart for a very inexpensive price.
