Glass

Don't flame me for asking this question. Can I was the all the glass along with the rest of the car. Just wondering if this would help with all the crap that always gets all over the windshield. Thanks in advanced for your help.

Never worry about asking!

I wash the glass during washing. I follow this up with 'Stoners' Invisible Glass on the exterior and interior glass surface. That's usually enough to keep it looking good.

I also use Zaino polishes, and I've tried it on the glass as well a few times. Helps ease the removal of bugs, etc.....

If you have any questions,,,,,ASK! You can always send me a PM as well.

For cleaning and polishing the glass with Rain-X I always use News Paper (black & white print) heard this many years ago and have been doing ever since. I get good results.
