What is the best way to clean off the "lovebugs" splatter off a car windshield? Please help, mine is covered and gross!

I would not use some sprays such as WD40 because it will leave a film on the windshield and the wipers will smear it around even more. You could use a razor blade to scrape most of the bugs off then a window cleaner with some Isopropyl alcohol added by you, available from super markets and Walmart and scrub with a non-scratching pad also available in the household section of the above stores. No scratches or smearing on the windshield.

Bounce dryer sheets, even used ones work. Our RV coach was covered with them after visiting Cameron, LA, on the Gulf coast. Got home, wet down the windshields and front, used a handful of "used" wet Bounce sheets and (actually, to my surprise), it worked! There is a tiny bit of elbow grease needed but not a whole lot.

I really don't have a clue about getting them off the windshield, but when we lived in FL, we got a bottle of Avon's Skin-So-Soft and wiped a very light coat of it on our car hood and bumper. Cleaning them off those two places afterwards was an absolute breeze. Good Luck, John! That is one thing living in Michigan now that we don't miss about Florida. Do miss the FL winters. (:>)
