It may be the courseness but I have noticed that about the time the white substance stops coming out of the drier sheet the bugs stop coming off as easily. They still come off but you have to rub harder. Personally I think there is a chemical reaction from the substance in the drier sheets that assists in breaking down the dried and hardened bugs.

I thought it was the coarseness of the sheet that did the cleaning. I don't think the fabric softener has anything to do with bug removal.

Use......"used" dryer sheets. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Seems to me that Adrian has a point...if it were solely about the "coarseness" why wouldn't something else work?

I just used the Bounce trick on this last trip to Charleston.

THEY WORK GREAT. Just get them wet and they disolve the bugs. I had a spray bottle of water with me and a shop towel to wipe off the white residue.

The whole front end in about minutes.

Two new sheets.

I found Bug Magic highly recommended. I've only had a chance to try it once so far, but it seemed to do a good job.
