Removing bugs off front bumper

Hey guys I've tried a few different cleaners and cant seem to get these baked bugs off the front of my car, so I'm assuming that I waxed them in a while back. Anyone know of a good wax remover or have any ideas about what all I need to use to shine up the front again. Thanks all

soak them with WD-40 for a couple of minutes, just like rubber in the wheel wells or tar.

Make a paste from baking soda and water and rub that on the bugs.

The baking soda will put fine scratches the clear.

In the old days we would make a finishing compound for lacquer paint with baking soda and water.

Denatured alcohol works sometimes for me on the job. Otherwise, when its black trim, I have some black trim "stuff" that makes it black again. Can't think of the name right now, will find out this week. I get it from my supplier. For other color trim, not too sure.
