Regular bra

Hey folks, love bug season is killing me!! I'm constantly washing my car which can't be good doing it constantly so I was thinking of doing a regular bra during love bug seasons. Any suggestions?

The 1990's called, they want their idea back

No pain no gain brother.. Wax it well (or get it opti-coated), and it shouldn't be that bad..

I know I cringe at the fact also, but Florida sucks during love bug season and my long rural highway commutes make it terrible. I wax my car frequently.

Used drier sheets are your friend. They work wonderfully for taking off love bugs and they do not scratch.

As long as your car has a layer of wax, you can wash your car daily.

They do make an incredible mess.

I find a coat of fresh wax, followed by a light mist of mineral oil from a spray bottle helps a great deal when you know you will encounter massive amounts of bugs. Upon return, gently spray with water and let it soak, followed by a stronger spray of water. This will remove the bulk of them.

I wouldn't put one on my car. They dull the paint off around the edge and think it will make your car look cheap.
