How to Remove Bugs from a Car Without Damaging Paint?

Anybody who’s done some highway driving in the summer knows that your car’s grill, hood, and windshield are going to get covered in bugs. It’s impossible to avoid and nobody likes to see those splatters on a paint job. Flies, mosquitoes, and other types of insects don’t make particularly pleasing hood ornaments.

At first glance, it may seem like a simple car wash or quick spray with the garden hose can restore your car to its former glory, however, some bugs are extremely difficult to remove. In this article, we’ll run down some of the fastest, simplest and cost-effective ways of how to remove bugs from the front of your car.

Removed bugs from front bumber of the car

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Bucket
  • Sponge
  • Hot Water
  • Dish Soap

First, squirt some dish soap into the bottom of your bucket. Use the same amount you might use on a sink of dirty dishes. Then, fill the bucket about halfway with hot water, until you see a lot of suds start to form. Dip the sponge into the hot water and squeeze out a bit of the excess water and soap. Finally, in a circular pattern, gently scrub the bug remains off the front of your car.

Best Way to Remove Bugs Using Baking Soda

Another simple solution is to check your kitchen cupboard for some baking soda. Baking soda can be a very effective and safe-to-use bug remover on your vehicle!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Microfibre Cloth x 2
  • Bucket
  • Baking Soda – 4 tbsps
  • Warm Water – 4 cups

Start by mixing your baking soda and warm water in the bucket. Then, dip a cloth in the mixture and softly wash the car. A circular motion is the most effective way to unlock the scrubbing power of baking soda. When the bugs are removed, rinse the vehicle with a hose and dry everything with a different microfibre cloth.
