Exterior cleaning

Any suggestions what would be a good product to remove bugs from front of AS and method of removal. Don't want to scratch this baby.

Car wash soap and water with a soft car wash brush and/or a nice clean car washing sponge? You can get bug removers but mostly soapy water does the trick.

Just remember it needs to be a soft brush and scrub with the grain of the aluminum as not to show swirl marks.

Dawn liquid dishwashing soap works best with my experience. Cuts the muck and grime with ease and is not harsh.

Use a soft mit or brush and rinse often. Dry with care. The scratches happen with dirty cloths.

Do not use pressure washers...just hand wash. Bugs can first be removed with WD40 if needed. Don't scrub them! Then wash as above. Works great!
