Bugs off of radiator cleaning - my tip

car/radiator plastered with bugs after a road trip.

Iíve been saturating the radiator fins with waterless car wash soap and let soaking for a long time to soften the bugs and rinsing with a gentle cascade of water as to not block the fins by pressing the bugs further inward.

These cars it hard to flush out the radiator fins from behind.

Eh, they'll rot and decompose eventually.

Try some super clean you can pick it up at Walmart or almost any auto part store. The foaming can also works great for cleaning engine bays. It leaves it looking like new with no residue or discoloration to the engine components. Just try and keep it off your paint it will strip any protection you have on there unless it's ceramic coated.
