Removing Bugs from Vehicle?

How do I remove bugs from the front of a vehicle? I have heard to use kerosene, but am not sure if this will damage the paint.

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!

I've heard that a Mr Clean magic eraser sponge works great for removing bugs from cars.

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!

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.

WD40 works fine on our vehicles and hasn't marked up the paintwork at all - worth a shot!
