Rated 5 out of 5 by Semi Awesome!!! I bought a bottle of this to try on my semi trucks, going into the process being very skeptical. I sprayed it on and waited a minute or two and started wiping the area with a terrycloth towel. When I wiped over the area the bugs just disappeared! I nearly fell over because it worked so well and was very easy to use with very little scrubbing. I have never been able to get bugs off that easily before. I just wish I could get it in a bigger size or in a refill because I plan on using it a lot. I don't know what the people are doing that say this doesn't work, because if it will make the front of a semi spotless, it should work on anything. Thanks! November 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sucks . I used it to remove tar off my tahoe and completely ruined my paint up. Thanks alot... September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked great! I drove my Yukon through chipseal/tar roadwork and got a light mist splattering of tar on my windshield and the front end of my truck. I took it through the car wash 48 hours later and nothing was removed by the car wash "bug spray"---but at least my truck was clean when I went after the tar splatters with this product. It worked great!!! I just sprayed it on the splattered areas, left it on for about 3 minutes, and it dissolved the tar and leftover bugs without much wiping from me. It smelled good too. I was VERY impressed! Thank you! August 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fails to Remove Bug Residue I purchased this product, in hopes it would "Easily Remove Bug Residue". I first cleaned and scrubbed the bumper with a brush. After it dried I applied the material as per directions, and after 1 min. it failed to remove the bug residue. I then applied the product for 15 min., again it failed to "easily remove bug residue. I finally did it the old fashion way "Mr. Clean, brush, and elbow grease!!!!" August 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't Work to remove bug splatter. I wanted a product to remove bug spatter before I waxed. I bought this because the Turtle Wax name is synonymous with quality. Unfortunately this product does not work to remove bugs. I attempted to remove bugs from the bumper, mirror backs and hood with horrible results. I repeated the procedure several times, leaving it on longer each time, but the bugs were still there. July 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't do anything but create a bigger mess I have a 2014 CRV and an 04 SRT10 that I bought a bottle each for. We had a tree that after some rain decided it needed to rain sap on our car.We followed the directions. After numerous times of Spray, Wait and Wipe (peel sticking towel off vehicle) we repeated until both bottles were exhausted. Now I have a brown and black car with white sap marks on them.Little sap spots have now turned into white smears onto the finishes of my vehicles. July 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not work well I have a 2010 Chrysler Town & Country that is silver. My wife encountered some road oil that left small spots of oil on the paint. It also had bugs on the front end from night driving. I bought the Bug & Tar remover. The instructions said to spray it on & wait one minute then just wipe it off with a microfiber towel. I sprayed this on the sides & front of the van & then tried the towel to no avail. No oil or bugs coming off. So I waited a little while longer. Same results. I finally got my bug scrubber & started scrubbing the oil off. This worked but not very well & took a lot of elbow grease on the oil. I finally got to the front end with the bugs & same result. This was after it had soaked 20-30 minutes. I finally washed this product off & sprayed Bleach White on the bugs. They instantly started rubbing off with little effort. Not at all what I expected & will never buy again. July 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective; easy to use I have been using this product to remove "bug kill' on the front bumper accumulated after driving through country roads. It works rapidly and "wisks" them away. June 28, 2015
