Every spring and summer, bugs end their short lives by splatting against the front of our RVs or tow vehicles.
Here are a few ways to ease the nasty chore of cleaning up afterwards.
(1) Prepare ahead. Before you head off on your trip wash and then wax the exposed forward surfaces of your vehicle to offer up the slickest, cleanest surface to the intrusive bugs. They may “splat” but they won’t be so inclined to spend eternity there. You’ll find them much easier to remove.
(2) After your trip, apply a thin coating of baby oil on the front surfaces to create a slick surface. A rub down with a wet rag at the end of your trip should remove most of them without too much hard scrubbing.
(3) Many RVtravel.com readers rave about a mesh bug cleaning wash sponge from Viking Car Care. It costs less than $4 at Amazon — a small price to pay for helping get rid of ugly, oily insects that dared to die on your pride and joy.
