Redgrandam Posted August 11, 2021 Share Posted August 11, 2021 I drive a lot on the highway at night commuting home from work. As a result I get a lot of bugs. I find that Opticlean and ONR alone often aren’t enough to completely get rid of the bugs with a weekly wash. I keep the front of the car well coated with sealant and wax (often optimum car wax) as I use it with every wash as a drying aid. Will using Powerclean (3:1) on a weekly basis degrade the plastic trim, headlight plastic, and clear coat over time (years)? I find that it works great to remove all the bugs and residue if I spray the front end down. It removes some sealant too but that’s no problem. The bugs come off with a single wipe of the sponge. I just don’t want to ruin the plastics on the car. To wash the front end I’ve been spraying with Powerclean, then using a pump sprayer give the front a bit of a spray down with ONR, then use sponge with ONR (pretty wet) to wipe the front. Then spray with wax and dry. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
