I always wash it after and never had an issue. I just find that some people slide into doomsday scenarios over anything.

In any case I've said my piece so I'm done with this thread.

Old gas station trick, when they used to be "service" stations: Use some wadded up newspaper to clean the windows instead of paper towels or rags. The old newspaper is slightly abrasive, and cleans bugs off easily after spraying windshield with water or window cleaner. My Dad and uncle both owned service stations, and we recycled all of our newspapers in this manner. Customers always left the station with a nice clean windshield.

Another idea

I have always used carnuba auto wax on windows with nylon net sponge (also for cars). Good cleaning and bug removal, streak free removal and nice coat on the glass for water repellent with wipers. No chance to damage glass

Yes. There are tutorials on YouTube for this. One on applying Rainex specifically described this technique. It is how I now do it, to great results.

My problem isn't the bugs, but the black marker connecting the dots. DW gets angry when I use her sharpie on the windshield.
