Good on most bugs and road tar

September 20, 2022

Good on most bugs and road tar. Not great on Love Bugs. Follow the directions and use a non-abrasive scrubber. May have to apply more than once. OK on Love Bugs - get these off as soon as possible!

Good Bug Cleaner, be patient.

September 18, 2022

Work well if you follow instructions and give it time to work on bugs that are hit at high speeds and baked on by 100 degree sun light. Patience people give it time to work and out of sunlight.

I'm not sure if this is a good product or not.

August 28, 2022

About three weeks ago I tried to wash off the heavy bug splatter on my car. I followed directions, shook up the bottle good to get a good mix going and sprayed the front of my car's grill, windows, mirrors, and a little on the front of the top of the roof. After a while, I noticed a heavy slime running off the places where I sprayed. I tried to rub off the bug splatter with the sponge but it only took off about half of the bug splatter. I tried to wash off the front again but it didn't work. Will try again when the weekend comes up.

Excellent

July 03, 2022

Excellent for bug removal on the front of your car and on the headlights. Safe on the paint and on the headlights when I used it. Also worked on some road tar that spun into the side of my car from the tires when I drove through construction zone on the highway.

Spray it on on let it soaked in.

June 29, 2022

We detail vehicles that sometimes don't get properly cleaned for months. This product does a excellent job removing old bug and tar areas. Bugs are the toughest to clean and this product used as directed (spray it on and let it sit for 5 to 8 minutes) is great. You may have to use it a second time. But I have tried many products and found this to be the best.

We used it to clean tree sap, road tar, pollen, and other detritus from our car's roof. It went on easy and did not require too much elbow grease. It did a great job but some of the sap and tar needed to be scrubbed with a more brittle brush. It rinsed off cleanly too.

Works pretty good

August 08, 2021

Product worked pretty well on my vehicles, I hosed the front of my truck down and did the mirrors then sprayed the product on the whole front end of the vehicle and the backs of the mirrors. It turned to a jell and I let it sit for about 8 min. Was very pleased with how many of the bugs it removed then there were a few I needed to scrub a little harder but the bugs were removed. I gave it 3 stars just because it was a pain to removed the jell really sticks to the body.

The liquid has oily feel, so do not spill inside

Worked great

June 13, 2020

I was little apprehensive because it was a spray-on rinse off application. I went through so much tar the sides of my silver car was black but I sprayed it on waited more than the 5 minutes and when I rinsed it off under high pressure 80% of it came off. I did have to do a second application and then a light third application but all the tire was removed. Good product and I would use it again. I wish I had before and after pictures to post.

Worth the money and it works!!!

June 12, 2020

When I came home from work my road had been sealed while I was gone so what looked like a wet road was actually sticky tar. My car is also always covered in dead bugs as I travel the interstate often. This product surprised me with how it made the tar wipe off. I did have to scrub the thicker tar and will need to do it a third time to get the last of the thick tar off and to clean the rims off but for $5 to save my paint job without taking it to an expensive detail shop I'll take it!!! The bugs on the other hand, it did clean off the guts pretty easy but the ones where the carcasses are stuck still wouldn't come off even with scrubbing. For full disclosure I will say I didn't spray as thick over the bugs so I will try again with them and a thicker coat tomorrow. I give it a 4/5 because it works but it doesn't work as simply on bugs as the ads for it describe.

This stuff is great

I commute to work through the country , so my front end always looks like a battle zone with all the dead bugs. This stuff, when used as directed, works like a champ. I spray it on, wait, give a light wipe/scub, then pressure wash. The bug come of with no problems at all.

Work Good...

April 11, 2020

I have two bottle of this in my garage now. If you live where bugs are bad like I do, then you would benefit from this product. All you do is just spray it on before you are ready to wash, let it soak for a few minutes and start washing the bugs away. Now that being said there may still be a bug here and there that require a hard scrub but for the most part they just wash away pretty easily. I recommend giving it a try.
