Is there such a thing as bug wipes for the car?

OK I can find plenty of spray-type bug cleaners but was wondering if I can get bug wipes that I can keep in the car to get rid of bug splatters as they occur if I'm away from home and am unable to give it a wash? If so, what is everyone's favourite brand?

Thanks

    Bug wipes would just scratch your clear coat so I doubt they exist.

    Wiping crunchy bug splatter across your bumper on multiple occasions would soon have it looking pretty beat up (the bumper that is).

    I recommend (depending on the value of your car) to at least keep the front waxed for easy bug removal. PPF would be good for a more expensive car or even a decent ceramic coat will allow the bugs to be removed with ease.

    A bottle of water and paper towels in the boot.

    It's a long standing invention and still available today.

      What is this black magic combination you speak of?

        The liquid is made from a 100% naturally occurring chemical.

        It gives vitality to life and benefit the environment!

        It's even safe to drink.

          Be careful, that stuff is responsible for more deaths in Australia than knife crime.

          Be careful. The chemical consist of Hydrogen and Oxygen.
          Hydrogen is extremely flammable, it may cause fire or explosion. While highly concentrated Oxygen can promote rapid combustion. Therefore the combination of these two is very dangerous and be lethal.

    Whats the last thing that crosses a bugs mind when it hits your windscreen - his brain.

      I thought it was his butt. If I’m not mistaken the brain is where the mind resides.

    My favourite bug wipes are stored on the car at all times. I have two long arms with a rubber strip attached. They pivot at one end, operated by a lever in the cabin. I also store a water bottle under the bonut thingy and there is a lever in the cabin that activates a spray that I can use before operating the two long arms.

      Sweet! Does that get bugs off the bumper too? :)

        I haven’t modified it to do that yet. I find it effective for the windscreen and worry about the bumper when I get home.

          Cheers. Send pics when you're ready.
