Removing Dried Bug Guts

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 your 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 bugs 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.
