We are already extensive with our contribution "Car wash / hand wash / car wax - this is how it works!“Received. However, it is sometimes extremely dirty Insects, which is especially the case when driving on the motorway, driving at dusk or in general when driving at high speed. Also know this problem in particular Motorcyclistwhen the visor of the helmet or the windshield is completely full of flies and other insects again. Insects on the Paint or on the Windshield are not particularly attractive and can even last for a long time Cause damage to the paintwork.

Insect cleaner can help

However, the selection of appropriate cleaners is huge and of course every agent promises that Best and Most effective to be, but this is not always the truth. A qualitative one high quality cleaner you can tell by the fact that the consistency is thick and more like a Gel remembered as a real liquid. Such gel-like cleaner have the advantage that they last longer remain on the residues - in contrast to extremely liquid cleaners, which curdle relatively quickly or simply run down. Such a cleaner must on the dirty areas be applied (For example the bonnet, front apron, side mirror or windshield) and then for 3 to 5 minutes act. After this time a Pressure Washer or even one water hose used to both cleanser, as well as Insect remains completely removed from the relevant places - your car looks clean and well-maintained again.

How to do it correctly and gently?
With help of a special cleaner or Gels stubborn residues can be removed effectively and, above all, gently. The cleaners ensure that the leftovers soaked and thus in the end solve easily. As already mentioned, the use of a special gel is particularly recommended, as this does not coagulate as quickly (especially on the steep passages of the front) and stays longer on the remains. Now you spray before Your car To wash the cleaner to remove the insects on the appropriate areas of the vehicle.
