LilYeller Says my 5 yr old "Dad, Whats the last thing that goes through a bugs mind when it hits the windshield? ..... It's butt!" Anyways I would use a degreaser like dish soap and let it soak for a few min then scrub them off with a green scouring pad. If that doesnt work I would clay bar it lol.

CalienteDookie This might sound crazy but I promise it works.... I have a friend who is well known in the detail world. Just simply use a dryer sheet it's amazing how little effort it take. Bugs, grease, tar, etc.

KicknJip I use a combo of 2 things. I live in southeast Texas and the love bugs use to be a pain.

First I take a glass cleaner called invisible glass. Comes from Walmart. It's in a dark green bottle with a yellow top. That and a micro fiber cloth will take off even the dried up stuff.

Second, after cleaning with invisible glass, Get the gallon jug of rainX that says bug wash on it. It's a lighter green colored liquid. Also found at Walmart. They have an all season one that is orange colored, which isn't supposed to freeze, but the green seems to work best for me. Make sure it's the RainX brand though. The cheap Walmart brand does not work well. Pour this into your windshield washer reservoir. Give the windshield a good spray with the wipers and you good to go! Bugs wipe right off after that! During love bug season you may have to re-apply the invisible glass stuff a couple of times but after using the RainX everything seems to come off way easier!

Hope this helps.

wmwhitey This is going to sound ODD but a fabric softener dryer sheet works good and also makes the next clean off easy. I learned that living in FL when all the love bugs would come down.

Hechtagon Haha guy in Jeep. Seriously the bug splatter is on like superglue. And they're all over the windshield. I've never seen anything like it. I thought about the razor blade thing but that was a major last resort because that's gonna suck to do frankly.

Captchris I find that household ammonia cleaner mixed 50/50 with glass cleaner works well. If that's not strong enough, use the ammonia cleaner straight from the bottle.

firecopfl Windex and a razor blade.

Anyone know of a good product to use to get dried bugs off the windshield? Pressure washer didn't even cut it.
