A coworker told me a trick to get rid of those d@mn lovebugs off your beautiful ride.
Last night, I spent 45 minutes getting rid of the ones from my daily commute. Like I have every night for the last 2 weeks Plus my wife's car. Figure an hour and a half of scrubbing, each night.
Here's the easy way...
1. Spray the big parts off with your hose. Pressure washer not recommended. You could damage your paint.
2. Wet a standard dryer static sheet. Doesn't matter what brand. Rub the entire surface that you want to remove the bug guts off of. It lays down a white, creamy film. Let sit for about 2 minutes, unless you are in the hot sun. (It took 3 to do my grill/bumper/windshield and my mirrors.)
3. Spray off with hose. Touch up the ones that hung on (not many) with the dryer sheet and spray again.
4. Enjoy the fact that you don't smell like lovebug guts, but smell like dryer sheet. As soon as my wife pulled in the driveway, I could smell them.
Took me less than 15 minutes per vehicle.
To my fellow Jeepers that don't deal with lovebugs. These are little demons that typically swarm twice a year (May and September). And sometimes a minor swarm mid-summer, if conditions are right. They serve no purpose. Nothing eats them. They eat nothing. They swarm wherever you have high concentrations of carbon monoxide. And their splattered guts are highly acidic and if you leave them on your vehicle, they will eat through your paint and pit it.
All they do is fornicate mid-flight and breed the next swarm to ruin our vehicles.
