There's way too many bugs to start naming them, geez.






Meguiar’s NXT Generation Car Wash
Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax
Meguiar's Gold Class Bug and Tar Remover
Some crappy towels to use to soak the front bumper to loosen up the bug guts
3 different kinds of sponges/wash mitt things to figure out which one will work best

resale agent / reseller. resale can be used in some situations but it's often more appropriate to use another form of the word. Kind of like all these For Sale listings on the forum. The titles make me laugh.... "for sell" seriously, where did these people go to school. Resale is an understandable mistake but some of the ones I see in the storefront area just make me wonder about people....

I find a quick spray of meguiars quick detailer works pretty good for loosening them up. but what I've had to do the last couple nights is just sit there with the hose and soak the front end for a while. I used some old towels a couple of times and just hung them on the front of the car and soak them down after an initial spraying and it helped loosen them up pretty good. I typically just use a good spray nozzle for a few minutes though. The biggest problem is when they start to swarm your car from the smell of the guts all over it. That's a pain!

I typically use a wash mitt for the bugs, I don't really ever use a sponge on any car though. I just never liked them. It's all too easy for dirt and whatever to get lodged into the face of the sponge and scratch the paint. At least with wash mitts they are easy to clean and don't hold onto grime nearly as much...
