removing bugs and road grime

I have some bugs, grass, and road grime on the sides of my 2 trucks from not having mudflaps. What is the best way to remove this stuff? Washing and gunk bug and tar remover hasn't done the trick.

WD-40 has worked in the past for me.

Re: removing bugs and road grime

Ive used wd40 and also zep window cleaner. The zep seems to work better and isnt as hard to get off the paint than the wd40 was.

Re: removing bugs and road grime

Best I ever used and will never use anything else is In a spray mix half water and half amonia maybe little more amonia if it's really bad and super cheap
