Glass polish recommendations

Anyone polished their windshields and have a good product recommendation. This is really for my truck, but I may try it on the boat. My back glass in the truck has terrible water spots. Autogeek has several glass polishes, but it is hard to guess which one is the best. I was also thinking about buying the Griot's garage 3" polisher to use. Thanks.

if they're water spots then use a 50% vinegar; works like magic. If you want a true glass polish then Bon Ami is an old fashioned but good choice

If you have some Hot Sauce try it for a water spot, it uses vinegar formulation. If not try 50-50 mix of vinegar and water.

This product will make your windshield disappear. Use lint free colth or newspaper for best results. Sorry for sideways picture...my phone has mind of its own when uploading to TT.

Sprayway is a great product - ZEP also makes a pretty good glass cleaner. I think it's available at HD and Lowes now.

while on the subject of windshields, any ideas on removing tree sap from the glass?

Tree sap - You can use Goof off or SeaFoam will also take it right off

Always user glass cleaner is an aerosol can? It will always work twice as good as anything in a spray bottle.

I really want to try a polish because my windshield has some scratches that I want to clean up. I mentioned the back glass spots because you see it the worst from the outside. But the scratches on the windshield make it difficult to see while driving when the sun hits it just wrong.

Anyone actually polished their windshield with a buffer?

only that one guy.... that doesn't mind putting swirls in his glass

DON'T DO THAT!


I had a dealer that detailed the truck I was buying and some how they managed to polish the glass... I took the truck home and realized what they had done. New truck the next day.
