Re: Cleaning Windshields

I have the Zymol Glas stuff in a sprayer.  Put a little more of the Glas
fluid and a little less of the water and it works great.

As for removing impurities...yes, you can get a Glas Polish and a high speed
buffing wheel and buff some of them out (like, light scratches).  Many
detail or glass replacement places can do this.

But, when you windshield gets old and sandblasted....nothing will help and
it gets dirty very easily.  Best thing to do is just replace it!
