When you really want your glass clean, not just on a daily basis but as in restoring, how can you get the glass looking great. I have heard toothpaste.
I had some overspray from my paint job on my windows, not paint , but it made the glass not smooth.
Any Suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks ahead,
Jim

I have found that for really smeary (whether from caked bugs or that "wax" in the automatic car washes) windshields a mere glass cleaner will not be enough. You will need something with a very (very) fine abrasive. Some have mentioned Brasso, but I have had some success with a product called "No Touch Auto Glass Stripper" (The 'No touch' part is the brand name, not part of the application directions.) It is essentially a thin suspension of a very fine abrasive in what is probably an ammonia-based liquid (like Windex). It may take two applications. Don't get it on the paint. Do your windshield a third at a time and rinse frequently.

Many people swear by Bon Ami. It is a household cleanser found in most grocery stores. It has mild abrasives that will leave your glass smooth and clean.

I've got to go with what Bill said. Bon Ami is a popular choice as are the purpose built window stripper/cleaners. Similar wisdom for both applies...keep it off the paint, it WILL require elbow grease, and rinse well.

We've found that applying Vision Blade or something similar shortly after the stripper produces impressive results as well. If you do this quarterly or even twice a year it is also a good time to change your wiper blade.
