It's bug season in CA, all kinds of bug jerky after you go 10 miles. We do you guys use to remove all the bug mess? Obviously, a scratchy mesh bug mitt could harm the paint. I guess there's no easy solution, except keep your car in the garage.

If they aren't baked on a normal car wash microfiber mitt with car wash solution should work fine. Don't ever let them get baked on, because bugs have an acidic nature that will eat though your clear coat and 'burn' or 'pit' your paint.

Most good waxes will also remove bugs, without the worry of etching the paint with harsher products. Detailing spray also works if you let it soak on the soiled area for few minutes prior to wiping off.
