I've used one a couple times--on the RV and the car. It does still require some effort but I think it made the job easier. I was able to be gentle with decals and car finish and still get the bugs off.

I have heard of ppl wetting down the front of the vehicle/trailer and using wet dryer sheets to get rid of bugs. I haven't tried it yet but I heard that it is fantastic.

I've used them and they work well. Still takes a bit of elbow grease.

Warm Soapy water--------------

Warm soapy water, apply let set for 2-3 min's, reapply and let set for 2-3 min's, use sink plastic "TUFFY" to lightly remove the love bugs with more warm soapy water. Will not scratch the surface, use to use the same procedure on a "GOLD WING" windshield with out scratching.

Just do NOT get it on your paint.
Coke contains acid that will destroy your pain job.

This works for me. I keep several boxes of "Bounce" in the camper for "bug control" (alive and smooshed on the front of the camper)

Prevention is better than the cure. It sure makes it easier when you have a good coat of wax on the front of your vehicle. I wash my vehicles with a good quality car wash/wax and brush and then if there are stubborn stains, they easily come off when I dry with a microfibre cloth. Unwaxed surfaces, a different story. I did use the dryer sheet technique once or twice and that worked too but with more elbow grease.
