: Bug Season Again Everyone!

Living in Florida, we are no stranger to bugs. We have everything here from Love Bugs ( the worse ) with battery-acid bodies to cruise-missile sized Palmetto Bugs. Please don't use those mesh-covered bug sponges sold at department stores. They can mar or haze clear coat finishes making an already messy situation worse.

The number one tool in anyone's arsenal against bug grime should be this honeycomb sponge. Called the Safe Scrub Bug & Tar Sponge, (http://classic-motoring.stores.yahoo.net/saf-scrub.html) this remarkable product quickly and safely removes the toughest bug grime and tar residues, without marring the finish!

To remove insect smear, simply dip the sponge in a bucket of soapy water (use a car wash shampoo, not a dish-washing soap), scrub away residues and rinse. The car wash shampoo will act as a lubricant. Safe Scrubs can be used on glass, chrome, vinyl, fiberglass, paint and clear coat finishes, without scratching or hazing the finish.

Word of caution! Do not use the sponge dry folks!

Rinse the surface, wipe dry and reapply your favorite wax or sealant. The Safe Scrub will remove existing wax or sealant.

Use it my favorite other product, 1Z einszett Anti-Insekt + Pre-Cleaner! (http://classic-motoring.stores.yahoo.net/eianpr.html)
Its special formula breaks up acidic insect bodies so they can be safely washed away. Insects produce acids as they decompose that will eat into automotive paint, leaving permanent etchings.

I had to wash my car's front end with the Safe Scrub to remove those nasty love bugs off my ride. Glad it had 3 coats of sealant and 2 coats of wax in aiding my finish from been damaged.
