My new best friend for cleaning off the 5'vr nose
« on: August 31, 2016, 06:46:50 am »
Krud Kutter.

 Wow! I thought I was on to something when I found that hand sanitizer zips off pine sap, and it does that really well. But this!!

 So I killed most every bug on my way down and back from Williamsburg. Thier carcasses plastered the nose of my fifth wheel. Car wash soap didn't touch it, bug and tar remover...ehhh...

 I sprayed Krud Kutter over the entire nose, let it stand about a minute and with a car wash brush, removed everything! Black and brown waves of junk just came off. It took 5 minutes. I couldn't believe it.

 I followed the cleaning with McGuire's Gold wash and wax and the nose is squeaky clean.

 It worked so good that I looked for some black streaks. I sprayed those, waited a minute and brushed the area...blam clean. It removed everything I found that wasn't supposed to be on the finish. 

 I really recommend you try it if you have a tough job. I think we originally found this at the dollar store or it might have been in Lowes.

 Give it a try! I bet you'll love it!

I think we'd love it even more if you'd demonstrate it on each of our trailers. 2 coats of wax please!  :)

but in all seriousness, thanks for the post....looking for something to do a pre wash on the nose of the coach to quickly remove bugs before i do the one step wash and wax......so i will give this a try....the only thing that catches more bugs than the nose of your 5'er is the windshield and front of my coach....

i see it is available at my local home depot as well, which is a nice bonus.....

I will take a picture of the nose when I get home. Wish I had taken a before photo. At least you can see the result.

Thanks Eric, will have to look to get some. Hopefully my local HD will have it too.

Oh by the way Eric I think you missed a spot right under the M.... Oh wait never mind it was on my screen.

Well i a quick wash of my windshield and front this afternoon and Eric hit the nail on the head this stuff is great. Hands down the best wash I have tried. Made a stiff solution, mopped it on and let it sit for 3-4 mins and then lightly went over it with the mop headed brush and it broke up the bugs big time with the least amount of effort I have ever had to use. Can't wait to try it on the alloy rims but want to fully read the label before i do. It is great stuff for bugs that for sure. Great find Eric and thanks for posting !

A gallon of concentrate at my local Home Depot was $13

And i love that's it's fully biodegradable, too
