how do i get rid of this crap on my side windows. the window cleaner i got from turtle wont take it off. what cuases this, and how can i get rid of it?thanks
Pretty simple, in a small bowl, mix a couple of shakes of bar keepers friend with water, dip the steel wool in the solution and polish the glass.i dont, maybe the person who had it before me? what are the steps to cleaning it? thanks a lot man
Synthetic steel or bronze wool whatever the grade can leave micro-scratches in the glass, which then becomes full with road dirt, grit and grime, causing a clouding the glass over time.
People use steel wool if no real affect though, but I will never use it. I only use it on exhaust tips and the like. You would want 0000 steel wool. I would much rather "polish" the glass.
Edit - Heres a 50/50 shot someone did that I saved a while ago as I've never really taken pics of windows.
They just use M04 on a rotary I believe it was but the same could be done with a PC.
I'd rather not relax old man. :crazy:People have been using 0000 steel wool on glass without adverse effects forever. There is absolutely no problem with it. Relax.
Here's some threads on the highest regarded auto detailing forum on the internet.
if its too hard of a stain try rust stain remover...i got some stoners glass cleaner and some 0000 wool, i dont know if i am doing it wrong or something but it i didnt do anything. i got the bottle sprayed some on and used the wool to srub it. are these the correct steps?

Go ahead and use it I am just throwing the caution out there. After doing research on it and talking to people at our bodyshops who've noticed a difference after using it I won't take the chance.
And yes I am very familiar with autopia.org
I would much rather buff the window to remove the water spots.
cool thanks manI would just start with SSR1 and work your way up if that doesn't cut it. I have a ton of windshield polish that I bought as I get a ton of cars that sit next to sprinklers or just people use hard water and don't dry.
As far as tree sap removing it is simple. It is water based, not solvent based so you need something water based to remove it, i.e. alcohol, windex, water.... Just soak MF or Terry cloth towel in HOT water. Set the towel on top of the sap to soften it then caefully wipe off or rewash when done. The older the sap is the longer it will take to soften it and remove it.
