    Hello everyone, is goo gone the best thing to use to remove all of those squashed bugs from the front bumper? Running the explorer through a car wash doesnt seem to work. I got them from my drive up to canada and florida. Living in nyc i dont really deal with that problem on the city streets. I dont want to scrub the car so hard to the point where it’ll ruin the paint.

    Car soap and elbow grease will do the job.

    Try Windex(or any window cleaner w/ high ammonia content) , melts the bug right off.

    I clean mine with Rain-X Glass Cleaner...works great on the bugs use it also for interior glass cleaning.
    what I do is go under shadow, spray a lot of the stuff on the front then wipe with water and microfiber cloth. Sometimes old stains/bugs have to be treated 2 or 3 times but eventually they fall off.
