I'm so new here that the ink isn't dry !!!
I found this site while looking for some info about getting those ever lovin' love bugs off of the front of our rig.
I had planned to spend about 1/2 of this Sat. morning cleaning it, but I tried the "dryer sheets" info that I found here today and as soon as I got home from work I did and within 10 minutes I had the entire front hood and grill cleaned and ready for waxing !!!
Sat. morning I will be up on the step ladder and hitting the cab over area.
You do have to wonder how these things come about--"Oh, honey, just try some "Bounce" on those stubborn love bugs--that should work"

OK - but did you use the WD-40 I suggested also?

Does anyone know if the Bounce sheets take of the finish on fiberglass surfaces? Can you even tell?

I ordered the free Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's and it helped take the black streaks off but later on the forum I found out it may dull the fb surface.

Would love to hear some feedback, 'cause I'm gonna try the bounce sheets for the bugs for sure and also on the black streaks.

never heard of bounce taking bugs off before...are you sure about that? also, what's with the WD-40 ? never heard of that either...do you also throw the MH in the washing machine? if you can convince me of the bounce and WD-40 i'll try it...otherwise i'll take mine to the laundro mat...

ok...did I understand this correctly.

Bounce sheets remove bugs from the RV simply by rubbing the sheet on the rv?

I have never tried WD-40 on bugs but it is about the only thing I have every found to remove the gooey stuff that labels are stuck on with. If it does remove bugs how many time do you have to wash it afterwards to remove the WD-40??? Patter

I simply user a blow torch. Frys them right off. Seriously though... I have found that the sooner you clean them off the better, get 'em before they dry. [emoticon]

I have read many post in the forum discussing the amazing results of the Bounce sheets and I do give them merit based on the numerous praises they receive in the general forum, however I am concerned that the surface of the sheets may wear away the surface finish on fiberglass surface.

You have to soak them in a bucket of warm water for a while before you use them. They will suds up a little and I have been using them for 3 years without a noticable change to the fiberglass or painted surfaces on the hood and fenders. Don't use them dry or that might scratch the finish. It makes bug removal a cinch.
