    Pretty much all of the bug/tar removers are good (the Autoglym one is very good) but I currently use the lovely daisy APC from Tesco (dilluted) and it does a very good job of getting rid of bug and fly guts (even ones weeks old from the wifes motor).

    is there anything that you just spray on and that can be rinsed off with a standard hosepipe?

    Tar removers work like that, but some bugs may need some aggrevation to remove.

    the autobrite stuff is like that - you actually see the bugs begin to bubble and then rinse away
