Ways to Clean Dead Insects Off of Your Vehicle
It’s hard to prevent bugs from sticking to your car, especially during the summer. Leaving them on your vehicle is not an option. Many insects are highly acidic, which can ruin your car’s paint. The sooner you remove them, the better it is for your ride. Fortunately, you have come to the right place. Here, we show you how bug removal works.
Remove Bugs from the Paint
Don’t scrape the insects off as it can damage paint. Instead, use a commercially available bug & tar remover to clean them off without chipping or scratching your car’s paint. Spray the product liberally on any targeted areas. Let the product do its job for two to three minutes and then rinse with water and wipe away with a microfiber towel.
Get Bugs Off of Windows
It can be harder to remove insects from the glass. We recommend letting the stain soak for a while — before beginning to clean them — by covering up the spots with a cloth soaked in the bug remover product of your preference. Use a microfiber towel on your windows or windshield. For stubborn spots, mix some baking soda with water and let it soak on the windshield.
- Give your car a thorough waxing after the cleaning to protect it from the bugs’ splatter.
- To reduce the risk of hitting large swarms of bugs, you can drive slowly.
- Place a bug screen on both outsides and inside the grille to keep bugs off of the radiator.
- If you are visiting an area prone to an insect invasion, you can install an air & bug deflector for some extra.
