Lovebug removal

What's a safe and effective product to remove lovebugs from a Coleman Light LX with a fiberglass shell? I've used common cleaners like carwash and simple green and a bit of them remains on the surface. Used a soft sponge to get some light scrubbing action.

TIA

If you soak them before you scrub them (scrub brush-soft like the one from Walmart on the extension pole) they will come off. You can use any gently soap DO NOT LET THEM SIT ON THE PAINT, they will leave spots. If you are in an area that is humid, morning is the best time since the dew sits on them and loosens them up.

Good luck.

Bounce drier sheets soaked in water takes them right off.

Whatever you do, do not use Mr Clean Magiceraser. It will dull the finish.

Any cheap dryer sheet will do. Wet them and scrub. Works on automobile finishes as well. Here in Florida, we go through them regularly.

Dryer sheets or this stuff....
Prosol Bugs N All. It's good for cars too.

Love Bug

I thought a Love Bug was a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle. Nobody wants to get rid of those!
