    Look behind you!
    They also work great on your stainless steel appliances.

    I tried the claybar with water/Dawn as a lubricant. Didnt Touch the water spots, mineral deposits. Seattle area has soft water (I think??)

    What Muscl Car claims as a miracle fix, isnt cutting it for me ?

    The spots on my side glass are etched in so nothing short of polishing the window will remove them. The clay bar did make the rest of the glass sparkle, but it will only remove surface contaminates.

    Sounds like I may want to try. I have some sort of permanent fog on my front glass. You can see the semi-circle of whatever the film is from the passenger wiper going over it. I have tried all sorts of cleaners but no luck yet.

    Works good for smoothing the glass, try vinegar for removing the water spots on the windows.

    A scratch in glass is a scratch. Clay has no abrasive will lift contaminants like pollen, tar, and bug poop and embed them in the clay so they are off the surface you are cleaning, but it isn't going to remove a scratch, especially in glass. 3m sells trizact discs specifically for sanding and polishing glass. Cerium oxide on a felt also will polish glass. It's like polishing paint but 9 thousand times harder. If you can catch a nail on the glass, replace it. You would be looking at hours of skilled sanding and polishing to truly remove it. If you sand too locally you are going to create distortion.
