Getting bugs off windshield/grill

Hey guys, just wondering if there's anything you use to easily removes bugs off your windshields and front end area? I get them plastered on pretty good at times, and as you know they can be a pain to get off unless you use some real elbow grease.

Is there anything out there that helps with removal? I read Invisible Glass is good, but thought I read somewhere that it may not be good for the paint?

Thanks in advance.

Regular dryer sheets work very well.

I just dodge the litter buggers! . Rain-X works great on the windshield. Regular washes & waxes help too.

I use dryer sheets also. Wet it and scrub. I also use Turtle tar and bugs removal for heavier bug guts.

I use a brush with stuff plastic bristles like for a shower. Works great. Just keep it away from the paint.

Spray nine works pretty good let it sit on the area for awhile and rub off with a wet rag.

You can also use Baking Soda and water and lightly go over the bugs with a soft rag with the paste you make. It won't harm the paint, as long as you don't scrub hard. They will lift off with very little effort. Been doing it for years. Other than that, I only use this...Bug-Off™ Insect Remover Works really well.

Rain X your windshield and it really helps with the bugs. They come off so much easier. Before I was treating my windshield with Rain X, I felt like I was a bug magnet. I assume I'm getting hit by just as many bugs now. I just don't notice because they don't stick.

Someone recently posted in another thread that hydrogen peroxide works well to remove bug guts, and it's safe for paint. I haven't tried it yet, but I plan to, to get all the bugs off Mike's jeep when we get home from vacation.
