As titled. I've tried lots of bug removal products which work to an extent but still have troubles getting rid of those more stubborn bugs which refuse to shift. Car always looks immaculate after cleaning but is let down by the bugs I can't shift. Anyone got any ideas or techniques that you use on your own motors.

Cheers

Nick

Carplan glass cleaning foam from Halfords.
Spray on and let it soak for a couple of minutes then use a microfibre cloth.

I think I might invest in some of that as well actually, I tend to use glass cutter on my other cars, it worked but was a bit overkill

Polish the front of the car after EVERY wash. It doesn't take long! Infact for less time than trying to scrub off flies. I have no trouble doing it this way. Washing every week or two by the way


Old Fords do it sideways
