Bug removal can be quite the daunting task, especially if they have been on the surface of the vehicle for a long period of time. It is important to remove these as soon as possible, as this can cause damage to vehicles finish by etching into the paint. DI’s new Bug Sponge has made this task a lot easier to complete. Previously I had been using the Tuf Shine Scrub-All No Scratch Sponge, which works good for removal of fresh bugs. Upon first inspection of the new bug sponge, you will notice that it seems very stiff and coarse, however once it is in your wash bucket the sponge becomes surprisingly soft. Due to the coarse weave of the sponge, it makes removal of surface debris very simple. Unlike other sponges where you need to scrub these areas to thoroughly remove dried debris from the surface, this sponge can literally remove them in one or two passes. On tougher spots you may still need to use a product such as an all purpose cleaner (APC) or a dedicated bug spray such as Chemical Guys Bug and Tar Wash. If you’re looking for something that is tough on removing debris yet gentle enough to not cause any damage to finish on your vehicle, this the sponge for you.
As with all of my reviews, here is the description for the DI Bug Sponge as provided on their site.
The DI Accessories Bug Sponge will allow you to remove dirt, grime, bug splatter, and more with ease! The Bug Sponge will soak up and carry an incredible amount of water and soap to help you safely wash away contamination without harming the surface. Everyday dirt and grime is no match for this sponge, but where the Bug Sponge really shines is at removing those nasty bug splatters from your paint. The high quality foam is flexible and easy to maneuver. Just drop the sponge into a wash bucket with water and your favorite car wash shampoo, agitate that bug splatter and rinse away. For heavy duty cleaning use cold water and for a more gentle cleaning experience use warm water. This sponge is tough, long lasting, efficient, and easily rinses clean. If you are looking for the perfect sponge to clean bug splatter and other contamination from your paint, the DI Accessories Bug Sponge is a great choice!
