Default Getting rid of bugs

some of yall might be familar with those dried up dead bug guts pasted to your truck after a long trip , well i found a way that gets rid of em without you having to work your shoulder off or scratch your paint.
simply use one of those dryer sheet fabric softner things that youve washed all the chemicals out of and watch the bug guts disapper

Guess it has to deal with the way the fiber is put together cause theres lots of tiny holes in it that just grip it i suppose

Autoglym bug and Tar remover is very good, it just melts them right off.
It's great on alloys and engine bays too!
