Read along.
- Wipe off any residue on the bug shield at least once a week.
If you can't afford to wash your truck once a week, you can at least wipe off insect residues that stick on the bug shield during your weekends. These insect residues can sometimes have chemical reactions on the material of your panel leaving nasty marks on it. At worst, the mark becomes very obvious and ruins the aesthetic appeal of the panel.
- Rinse the bug shield with a steady stream of clean water.
Using water for cleaning any panel of your vehicle's exterior is standard. Directing a steady stream of clean water loosens dirt and grime attached to the surface. With a certain amount of pressure, it can already remove some foreign bodies sticking.
- Scrub stubborn dirt and residue with a sponge.
After rinsing the bug shield with water, you can continue getting rid of dirt by using a sponge soaked in a car shampoo mixture. Scrub the plastic panel with soaked sponge until the residues are eliminated. After, rinse again with clean water then dry with a chamois.
