    Cleaning off bugs

    What is the best was to get bugs off the front of my truck without damaging it?

    LA's Totally Awesome! Rinse off first. Spray on and let sit for a minute. Then wash as normal with minimal scrubbing. Works everytime

    kidding aside, its easiest to get them asap. if you wait a couple days, just get them wet & soaking. I'll set my hose on fog and aim it at the front end when I was my truck and by the time I complete the rest of it, come back to the soaked bugs and they come right off.

    weird thing I found works great is a damp bounce or whatever fabric sheet you use just wet and wipe the bugs away then just wash it
