Black streaks gone!

Forgive me if this is common knowledge among you more seasoned RVers...
I returned last weekend from a trip to Florida, and as you know if youíve ever been to Florida, they have bugs almost as big as my motorhome. Many of those bugs painted the front cap of my ACE with a nice coat of guts. I used bounce drier sheets to get them off (well known trick). However, I couldnít help but wonder how the drier sheets would do for black streaks. So, I got me a step ladder, dipped the drier sheets in soapy water, and using some elbow grease...viola! They are gone!! Like I said, maybe Iím late to the party, but I am tickled pink to get those ugly things off my camper!

The black streaks come right off my coach when I wash it. No special products required.

Thanks for the useful tip, and "colorful" description of the condition...

I have used commercial grade hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 with water and it cleans the roof and sides like new and heck it works on the house, driveway if you have rust stains and isn't toxic or caustic so it wont harm paint.
