Do not use Magic Eraser on your car paint. It will damage the surface as it is an abrasive. Kerocene will not damage your paint, but it is terribly smelly. I wash my car at the car wash where they have a special solution that is used as a presoak. I suspect it is just something like a dishwashing soap, slightly diluted. I would use Dawn.
I fill a spray bottle with baking soda and water and spray the bugs - let sit just a bit then scrub with nylon net. Works good!
Someone on here not long ago suggested a damp dryer sheet the ones that soften your clothes in the dryer. I tried it and it took off the love bugs that we have here in FL that are so hard to remove and didn't harm my car at all. I hardly had to use any elbow grease!
I've heard that a Mr Clean magic eraser sponge works great for removing bugs from cars.
