X3 on Rejex.
I put it on my front cap and just returned from a 3000 mile trip.
Bugs just fell off when I put the brush on them. I am quite impressed.

Simple Green. Works like a charm. If itís realky bad, use toothpaste. Powerful non-abrasive cleaner you already know to be safe. I even use it on furniture.

Yep Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover.
It removed burned on black she heel from my motorcycle pipes. Wife wasn't happy about her shoe heel, but I was happy my pipes were clean!

Very surprised that I have read 5 pages of forums on this subject, and while I've learned a few new things, I never once heard anyone mention a product called "Bug-Off". It is a product by B.E.S.T and is found in most RV stores. I have been using this for over 10 years and it basically disintegrates the bugs. The key is not to let them dry too long as the sun can bake them on. Every time I return home from a trip, it is the first thing I do is get on a ladder and start cleaning them off. This product makes it so simple... Great for the tow vehicle as well.....

Then I tried with the car wash cleaner i had at home and a long handle brush with lots of scrubbing.
Finally I used Aero Wash & Wax.
Every time I make some headway but can never completely get rid of the little buggers. Please let me know how you solve this other than cleaning them off within 24 hours.
Thanks
Warm water and a micro cloth, use the rough side, works great.

Bug removal

I use Pledge furniture polish ( or any you can buy at the Dollar Store). Spray it on and they come off. It also helps protect the surface when bugs get splattered next time. i saw this on a forum several years ago.

I had to use a buffer and polishing compound to get them off of mine after driving 900 miles home after initial purchase.



I use Rejex and they just wipe off with a damp rag. But wipe them off every couple days on the leading edges if not spending 5-10 minutes every evening of travel.

I use a standard pesticide sprayer with this mixture. Hose everything down first. Spray on the mixture. Let it stand for 5 minutes.

Awesome 1/2 bottle
Degreaser 1 cup
Water. 2 gallons

This is the mixture a lot of car washes use.
