it took me 45 minutes to clean her windshield
I wish it would have only taken me that long. It literally took me an hour and 45 minutes to dig off the grease. blah!

Definetly, that'* what I always use at work. It just couldn't cut it though with these windows. wow.

they dont scratch it all
I'm going to say this: Will you, right now, walk outside with a razor blade, take one of the corners, and make 10 two-foot slices across your windshield with your eyes closed, then open them to see what happened?







Didn't think so..
I wouldn't..

yeah i know about the whole newspaper thing but im going to ask you or anybody to try the steel wool thing ok? then after you try it you will have the right to down the whole thing on saying it will scratch a wondsheild

When I worked at the local F*rd dealer back in 2000 the local Police Chief'* daughter traded in her Ford Tempo and I got the job of cleaning the crap out of that car. The windows were covered extremely thick with smoke from ....WEED!!! Yep, weed, Chief of Police'* daughters car, and she still lived with her parents. I can't believe he let her get away with that -you'd think he'd at least make her clean the shi+ out of the car before she traded it in for the sake of not blemishing their family'* name and fathers reputation.
It stunk SOO bad in there and we ended up getting replacement seats from a local salvage yard since we couldn't get the smell out of them.

With my experience with the scotchbrite pad, all I can say is you've got a touch I ain't got. And hope I never need. I don't put as much effort into keeping my car clean as some of y'all do, but if I ever need anything harsher than a paper towel to clean my windows I hope somebody just shoots me....
