^^ may be she didnt scrub them off... you gotta scrub to get it clean...

and mr clean works well on my dads camry, but not on the celica, i usually hand dry the celica anyways, along with "wax as you dry" wax spray... works good...

Those bugs are acidic & burn into the paint. The only way to get the remaining marks out is with a buffer. My sis is a pro detailer & she did it for me a couple of times. She hates that I don't wash my car. LOL

WAIT! Buffers can burn the paint off your car. I woundn't recommend practicing on your Celica. My Sis is a pro & she is used to doing Corvette's and stuff. Even morons at her work occassionally burn the paint off a new Cadi.

My sis finished with the car & it looked better than the day I bought it. The carbon blue paint takes on a whole new dimension when its that shinny. She buffed it with compound, repaired the rock chips & then buffed on a teflon coating. It was completely smooth to the touch.

Hope it works out for ya.
