Removing Dried Bug Guts

Most of us look forward to the warm dog days of summer, but one of the downfalls of the summer heat, is the scorching suns ability to “bake” bug guts onto the front of our vehicles. You may have just washed it yesterday, but today, it’s plastered again and getting them off can take lots of elbow grease. Until now! Here’s a simple tip using an item you’d like throw away…

You’ll Need:
Old Used Dryer Sheet(s)
a small dish of clean water
5 minutes of your time

Soak the used dryer sheet in the bowl of water for a moment or two and then “wash” the front of your vehicle to remove the bug guts. This entire process takes about 5 minutes of time, depending on how “baked” on the bugs are.

Rinse with a hose to remove any remaining residue and wipe down with a clean dry lint-free cloth.

If you have some that are really splattered on there good, soak the used dryer sheet for a moment, then lay it over the dried bug splatter for about 2 minutes to let it soften while you work on a different area.

Once you’ve gotten all the nasties off your car, consider applying a nice coat of wax, this will make future clean-ups so much easier and faster.
