Easy way to get rid of dead insects goo after a drive? Not anything too involved, must take < 10 mins. I am lazy.

For exterior paint? Do not use steam. Use a pressure washer or water hose. A good rule of thumb is to not place the water jet any closer than you would to your own skin (for instance, use your own hand as a gauge for the distance). You'll be perfectly fine. The paint is far more durable than your skin.

If it's not smooth, it's not clean. Start with degreasing with something like P21S Total Auto Wash and then move upwards of claying or decon pads from there.

Pay a professional to steam clean and/or hot water extract them. For DIY, Youtube will have many tutorials but that's a level of cleaning that's best left to the guys with the professional equipment IMHO and, in general, it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to have it done.

Call a pro.

Mix up some Optimum No Rinse Quick Detail Spray. Mist to a towel, place the towel over the bug marks for a few moments/minutes, gently wipe away. Do not do this on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight.

Enjoy!
