ummm NOT on tinted windows in this case. Actually I would never use windex on tinted windows as the ammonia will discolor and may harm the tint.

I don't know dude... I have friends who smoke in their cars [and their parents who do too], and there never has been a residue.. but if they had smoked marijuana, there are traces of resin everywhere where smoke was. Either way, both are disgusting, and are both pretty stupid.

one of the inspection guys at firestone where i used to work would not pass this lady'* minivan because her windows were so dirty from smoking. i told him that id clean them because it seemed to be an easy job. ended up taking two rolls of bounty and 3/4 bottle of streak free windex. when i went to the waiting room to tell the lady that we could pass her vehicle because of her dirty and it took me 45 minutes to clean her windshield, she laughed like i was joking. it was pretty nasty, but my truck windows are probably almost that bad.

A- I smoke in my car. and yes, there is a reidue. Not bad in mine because no matter how cold it may be, I have the window open an inch or two. I spend up to an hour and a half a day stuck in my car commuting, so you bet yer sweet bippy I'm smoking in it!

b- Do NOT put steel wool anywhere near your windows!! I scratched the hell out of the windshield on another car using a ScotchBrite pad, and they're meant for surfaces you shouldn't use steel wool on. What you wanna use is newspaper. It'* course enough to cut through the crap, but won't hurt the glass...

they have different grit of steel wool there is a protective flim on alll windshields that why the crack on dont shatter
and lets say your drive through the woods and tree branches scrape your window? they dont scratch it all

I don't think a tree branch is as hard as steel. Yes, a piece of wood can have a point on it, but the hardness of the material is what matters when scratching something (i.e. diamonds). Also, windshields are kept from shattering because they are made from alternating layers of glass and plastic. A windshield is technically a 3-ply laminate (maybe more layers than that, I'm not sure).

I'm not going to pretend to be a glass pro or anything like that, and I'm not trying to start a fight. I don't mean to offend you, Gameover. I've always heard that newspaper is the stuff to use on residential glass, so it would probably be the thing I would use on my car. Please let me know if I have my facts wrong!
