Bugs fly down and smash into your car’s windshield each and every day. The bugs leave not only their bodies, but feces and other fragments on the windshield and other parts of your car. You try to clean the bugs from your car’s windshield regularly with a commercial glass cleaner, but you want a cleaner you can make at home. There are some homemade windshield cleaning formulas you can use to remove the bug stains.

Onion Bags and Baking Soda

The next time you buy onions that are in a nylon netting bag, keep the bag and use it to wipe bugs from your car’s windshield. The nylon netting is rough enough to break up the dead bugs and related fragments, but won’t damage your car’s windshield. Then sprinkle about a tablespoon of baking soda on to a damp sponge and scrub away any remaining bug residue. Wash the windshield further with ½ cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Then rinse the windshield with clean water. Dry the windshield with paper towels.
