Years ago camping we had a really bad insect night. I was slathered with deet and fell asleep with a plastic flashlight in my hand. Woke up with it melted to my skin and had to yank it free. That stuff is nasty.

next up: quick detail using brake fluid in a misting bottle…. (This is sarcasm DONT TRY IT)

I prefer brake cleaner as a detailing cleaner.

Went out and used some bug spray on my beautiful Camry's headlights for this thread. Only spent 10-15 seconds scrubbing each one. The bug spray nozzle clogged up doing the driver's side one so I didn't get a second pass
