I don't know how this bottle made it into my garage, I have never used this stuff. The Mrs. maybe?

Label reads powerful citrus cleanser. It smells nice.
What the heck, I've been looking at these bugs since my trip to FL a month ago.

Started in a low painted area, then the headlights. Those bugs were really smashed into the paint, mirrors, lights and grill.
Washing alone wouldn't get rid of them. I left this stuff on a few seconds to soften the really caked on stuff.

Conclusion : Removes the bugs, leaves a nice shine.
Paint was very shiny. Looked as if it was clayed then glazed. javascript:void(0);
I just may use it on my other car to remove any impurities prior to glaze and wax.

Looks really cheap on their website.

I use the powder version of BKF and water to create a paste that I use with an old toothbrush to keep the inside of my exhaust tips clean. Does not scratch and leaves a nice shine to the chrome tips when done.

WD40 also works well to remove bug guts.
How does it react with the paint and finish?

I've used WD40 as well with no harmful effects.

Beware! It may have some fine grit in it and can scratch the clear coat.

There are bug and tar remover products in auto supply stores that do a fine job and are designed to be used on clear coat finishes. I've driven from the northeast to FL many times and those products are a must after one of those trips.

I'm told that WD40 is fish oil based. fish oil is not known to be harmful to paint.
It's petroleum based stuff - discussed fully in another thread.
