So below is what I do at every campground along the way.
I use used dryer sheets wet them and then wipe the bugs off.
Still takes a little elbow grease but much easier.

I'm going to go buy a box tomorrow and test them out.
I've used dryer sheets before, and they work GREAT!! Won't keep the bugs from getting on there, but sure does make it easy to get them off!

Nope. The best way to do it is to get a spray bottle with some water, put a few dryer sheets in and let it sit for a few minutes. Spray the water on the front of the car, and let it sit for a few minutes. Then grab a sheet, get it wet and start wiping. It takes them right off. Bugs, grease, whatever... it just comes right off.
I do this as "prep work" and wash my car with a good wash/wax combo after I get the bugs and tough grease off with the softener sheets.
It is a bit difficult if you have a lot of area that needs work because the softener sheets are difficult to hold; I end up getting cramps in my hands. I'm going to try wrapping a small sponge next time to see if that helps.
