He Wipes Steel Wool All Over THIS Windshield. But The Reason Is Unexpectedly GENIUS!

If you’ve ever owned, maintained, or driven an automobile, then you know how dirty and cloudy looking the windshield can get over time. The filmy layer forms because all of the dirt, dust, pollutants, bugs, tar, and other nasty road grime that you drive through gets blasted directly at the windshield!

While most of it ends up bouncing off, some of it inevitably ends up sticking to the glass, especially bugs. However, it’s the teeny tiny minuscule particles that you don’t even see which add up and make the windshield look dirty, hazy, and hard to see out of.

Oftentimes a regular car wash will fail to remove this type of dirt build up and instead you’ll need to really scrub and work hard to clean it all off. Or, you can make your life easier by trying this simple and effective method that will leave you with a super clean windshield.

The choice is easy, so here’s everything that you’ll need; rain-x, steel wool (*make sure to get the finest type available- which is 4 ott), two old cotton t-shirts or rags, and an old pair of cotton socks. Start off by taking a steel wool pad and rub it all over the glass.

If you use the finest type it won’t scratch it, but will still easily remove everything that’s stuck on the windshield including bugs, grime, and the notoriously tough water spots, which are a pain to get off. Keep rubbing for as long as it takes to completely clean, paying attention to any little spots that may be tougher than usual to get out. It may take you about 5-10 minutes to do this but the cleaner the better and longer lasting it will be.

The next step is to grab an old sock and soak it with rain-x. Do not skimp on this part! Apply it to the glass in circular, overlapping motions, making sure to cover every single spot on the windshield without getting any on the car paint. After it dries a little, apply a second rain-x coat right on top of the first one, and let that completely dry.

Take a rag and completely soak it with water, then wring it out so that it’s still quite wet but not so much that it’s dripping. Use it to wipe the glass to remove the rain-x film you applied on the windshield, and for this part you don’t need to press down hard or anything. Finally, take the other dry rag and wipe down the windshield again to completely dry it and you’re done!

If you try this your windshield will be incredibly clean, clear, and smooth to the touch. When it rains the water will slide right off and you won’t need to use the wipers nearly as much as you would have without this treatment. This also works for the rear windshield, side windows, and side view mirrors.

The gentleman in the video further suggests that you coat the wiper blades with rain-x as well to help make it last longer, since it tends to wear off quicker on the windshield from the blades constantly going across it. He also suggested “Invisible Glass” cleaner be used on the inside of windows because it’s far superior to regular glass cleaners and doesn’t leave behind any streaks.
