    Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential stuff for motorcyclists. I can't believe it took me so long to consider using this stuff. I've been a biker for 40 years and have always struggled to get all of the bug residues off my bikes when I cleaned them. I've used proprietary bike cleaners and good old soap and water but nothing really shifted those dried on bugs. This stuff was a revelation! Spray, leave, wash and the bike now comes up like new! It's cheap too. Wish I'd got some years ago. 13 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Tried it the past few days and is perfect for bird droppings 26 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicely surprised Just got back from St Ives last night, 260miles of evening bugs splattered onto my wife's Tiguan, plus the 260 miles down there and lots of sea gull mess. The car was covered, bought some of the bug shifter, tried on half the front end, waited a small while, and washed it off with a bucket of hot soapy water, 95% off in the first go. Sprayed the other half whilst cleaning the alloys and the same. Then washed the whole car as normal. I don't normally go for this type of stuff, but after a long journey the car needed it. I would use again. 1 note, the bottle has changed from a black one to a clear one with green liquid in it. 04 June 2016

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, highly recommend Used on my car after a long motorway trip to remove the bird droppings and bugs. Used for the first time abd was amazed with the quick resukys. Am going to purchase more. 07 September 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great on Bugs Bought one of these because of the good weather we have been enjoying, bugs squashed on mass. I have bugs on the windscreen, grill, bumper and number plate and i used this product with great effect. Used a normal sponge, followed instructions and it was very effective. Thanks Halfords and thanks Simoniz.. 07 July 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by simonz Bug shifter - best thing since slice bread !! I have been using this product for at least 2 years, i live on the coast of wales , and you can imagine the amount of seegul mess, along with other birds of prey deposit on my car. Once i spray the simonz bug shifter on the car and all you need to do is gently wipe of with kithen roll or a soft clorth. It all comes off with ease. If the Bird mess has dried, i find it best to spray on and just hold the cloth on the area for a few seconds and then gentlt wipe, may need a couple of squirts but it removes without leaving any residue. I dont understand why the other comment on hers says it doersnt work , becuase if it can shift the seegul mess it will certainly shift their bugs of their windscreen and bumpers. It works on body work aswell as glass. I am purchasing 3 more bottles on sunday at the shrewsbury store while on my travels. 08 May 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Well I bought this on a whim as I had quite a few nasty blobs of bird poo and a few bugs on my car that just weren't shifting with shampoo and I didn't want to risk something harsher.. I used this exactly as per the instructions and hey presto, everything came off clean with a paper towel. Did not see any of the issues the other reviewer saw, especially as these were bugs shampoo failed to shift. Brilliant product if used correctly, but does need the time suggested on pack to remove the stains. 12 December 2012
