Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Bugs On Your Car.. Bugs are gross. Well, at least to most of us and to our cars too. When it’s bug season, the little annoying critters seem to have no mercy! It’s like they come up with a dastardly little plan in their buggy little heads about how they can swarm your car and ruin it. Believe it or not, bugs on cars can permanently damage your car’s finish. Oh boy, do you need a solution? We’ve got three. Don’t lose your temper and power-hose your car down: It is sooooo tempting to blast those little critters straight into buggy-hell, but it’s actually not the best idea for your car. It’ll just cause you more damage. Your exterior trim items will pay the price. A better idea would be to allow the areas that are affected, to soak first, with a low-pressure rinse. The next thing you need to do is apply car wash suds (not household, abrasive cleaners or applicators) with a wash mitt. We recommend you do this while parked in the shade.. Try Ivory: Once you’ve got Ivory bar soap at home, you’ve got a solution. Stearic acid, an ingredient found in the soap will remove stains that the insects leave when they secrete their acidic bodily fluids onto your car. Rub a wet cloth along the bar, then apply this soapy paste directly on the stain (without rubbing it in much) and let it sit there for a few minutes. When you rinse it off, there should be no stain.. Coat Your Car: Keep your car clean and bug-less, by applying a coat of wax to the exterior. Why? Because wax acts like a barrier between your car and your car’s insect enemies. Just remember to avoid colored or tinted wax. You can even coat your windshield with special treatments made for them too.. Good stuff, right? Yup!
