Removing Dead Bugs?

Hey guys i was just wondering how to fully remove dead bugs from the end of the car? I live an hour away from where i work, and the quickest way is all on back roads, so i hit like 18 million bugs on my way to work everynight. I've washed my car several times and tried goo gone but its only worked somewhat.

I read somewhere that taking an unused dryer sheet, running it under water, and rubbing it on your car will take off the dead bugs. Anyone tried this?


I just wanna be able to see my pretty front bumper for once

^^ This stuff works well if you clean the bugs off right away. If you leave them sit on there too long it doesn't work too well ..... Bugs seem to chemically adhere to our bumpers like super glue.....
