I use the dryer sheets as well, but learned a little trick. If you fill a standard spray bottle 1/2 way then stuff a couple of dryer sheets in there and shake it around to get whatever it is they put in dryer sheets dissolved into the water it makes an excellent pretreatment before going at it with the sheets themselves. Just spray on and let it sit a bit.

dryer sheet question

If the dryer sheets work and you say it is only fabric softener, has anyone tried using fabric softener on their brush (not the sheets)? Seems it might do the trick as well. Any thoughts on this?

'Rejex' wax helps solve some of the 'gug butt', or, the last thing that goes thru a bug's mind as he hits the 'wind screen', problem.

I always use Awesome 1 part to 4 parts water, let it sit a few minutes and clean off with soft bristled brush. Then wash entire front with Blue Coral car wash. Living in Coastal Ga and traveling to SC and Fl frequently, we collect a LOT of lovebugs.m This has always worked well for me. I'm sure it deteriorates the wax slightly, but I wax the motorhome every 3 or 4 months anyway, so no damage.

Bugs

It sounds like most of us have found some solution to the problem. Being from florida where we are cursed with "Love Bugs" twice a year you will use anything that will work. Love Bugs have a acid in them that left on your surface for more than 24 hrs will pit the surface and when they are swarming its usually on country roads and they will pepper your camper like shaking pepper on mashed potato. I am a firm believer in the dryer sheets but there is a preventative measure its called Collonite's No. 845 its a Insulator wax clear coat safe used for marine, RV and aeronautical use. Bug problems will be a thing of the past.

We use hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. Spray on and the protein be be broken down by the peroxide making it foam up. If fresh bugs it will wipe off with little effort with the hose if dried on will take a few sprays more. I live in the love bug country works on my motorcycle and gear too. Will not harm plexiglass of paint
