Have you looked at your windscreen lately? Does it need a clean?
If your anything like me when it comes to keeping a pristine looking vehicle it’s a must, but keeping all the windscreen, side windows and even the mirrors in a spotless state can be very difficult. I find nothing better than jumping in my car and not even noticing the windscreen, meaning it’s so clean and clear I don’t notice it. But there are so many factors that make your vehicles glass exposed to dirt and grime on a day to day basis. The main culprit would have to be mother nature and the road conditions. Let’s look at some ways to help keep your vehicles glass looking like it’s not even there.
As you may know mother nature and road grime are the main factors from keeping the glass surface clean. As your driving behind other vehicles on a wet road, all the road grime that is sprayed onto your vehicles windows, from the leading vehicles tyres, is the worst. It looks like it’s just water spray but this spray is full of muck and dirt particles that stick to the glass surface, making it filthy. Then we have mother nature, which has everything to make your glass look like an insect splash painting, which can be hard to remove especially if you allow the insect smudges to dry on the glass. Not to mention the calcium and hard water stains which are the most stubborn of stains and can be the most difficult to remove. Depending on how frequent the glass surface is exposed to these harsh main water supplies, coming from garden and lawn reticulation, or even from the water you use to wash your vehicle from the main water supply.
Easy to Hard Stain Removal
Cleaning your glass depends on the condition of the glass and how grimy or dirty the surface is. But here are some simple tips and tricks you can use to help clean and prepare your glass surface.
To start with there is the trusty Windex, which is good for removing minor grime and calcium stains, but it works best after the surface has been cleaned with a detergent. Using Windex after a clean will remove any streaky minor water stains, but Windex has limitations when it comes to heavy water and bug stains.
When it comes to heavy stains there are a few options, the first and cheapest product you can try is Cloudy Ammonia which can be purchased from any supermarket or hardware store. You can water down Cloudy Ammonia’s strength to suit the toughness of the stains. I have used Cloudy Ammonia on many occasions but have found even at full strength it won’t remove the hardest of stains. Also, do not use this product on tinted glass.
If Cloudy Ammonia doesn’t do the trick, the next step for really tough stains, is a couple of different products. One is called Bar Keepers Friend and the other is Magic Kleen. Both are great for the harshest of stains and can be used not only on your vehicles windows but also on marine vessels and the shower screen at home.
Bar Keepers friend is more readily available to us from the Coles supermarket chain. With Magic Kleen ordering online is the easiest option, showerscreenclean.com.au offers the product in a 1kg or 400g packs with free shipping, which is not bad. Both products are in a powder form and once water is added it becomes a thick paste, which is rubbed onto the glass surface with a sponge then rinsed off. You will find this will remove most glass stains. Just be careful not to rub too hard which may scratch the glass.
If you find the glass has scratches on the surface, this can be caused from damaged wiper blades etc. Meguiars Ultimate Compound which is available from most auto stores can be used on glass surfaces with a microfibre cloth or with either a polishing machine or a drill with a polishing pad attachment, which is my preferred option. Simply use Ultimate Compound on the glass surface exactly like you would on a painted surface with back and forth motions, then using a microfibre cloth wipe away the compound residue and you will find the scratches are gone. Ultimate Compound is clear coat safe, so if your light lenses are starting to discolour use this product to rejuvenate your lenses. You can use this to remove all the stains mentioned above also, so this is a great option to try.
Keep your Glass Incredible
Now that you have all the glass and mirrors spotless wouldn’t you love to keep it this way, but as mentioned earlier you are against the odds. That is where we come in and save the day. You can now keep your glass crystal clear and clean for amazingly long periods of time. Mr Nano Glass Armour gives one-year rain repellency glass protection, for all your glass and mirrors on your vehicle or marine vessels. This awesome glass protection basically has nano particles that criss cross each other, which embed and lock themselves together, into the glass surface. This technology seals and waterproofs the entire surface. With its super hydrophobic properties, it makes the glass surface extremely difficult to wet. Rain etc, will simply bead off the surface. What grime, calcium, hard water stains and bugs that manage to stick to the surface are simply wiped away or bug smudges and bird droppings just wash off with a hose down even if the insect smudges or bird droppings have dried and become rock hard. If you live in the colder climates where those frosty cold mornings have frozen your windscreen over night, need not worry your windscreen etc will not freeze, because Glass Armour does not let the dew or moisture settle on the glass surface. Simply start your vehicle and drive no more standing in the freezing cold defrosting your windows. The great thing being is that there is no need to use the harsh chemical cleaning products mentioned above to keep your glass clean. Having to clean your windscreen is basically cut in half, no need to repeat the hard cleaning as you would if you didn’t have Mr Nano Glass Armour applied, now you only have to give it a quick wipe down with water or a hose down or maybe just use your wiper blades a few times with water to make those stubborn insect smudges disappear.
Save Money Save Time
Mr Nano Glass Armour one year rain repellency will save you huge amounts of cleaning time and money. I have a Holden Colorado and I had to buy new wiper blades once. I couldn’t find after market blades at the auto stores, so I had to buy factory blades for my 4×4. I had to pay $90.00 for these blades which were well over priced. The great thing about Glass Armour is that you don’t have to use your wipers anymore, because while you are driving along in the rain Glass Armour will keep your vision clear with no wipers needed. You may find it hard to believe, but with the nanotechnology in the protective coating gives the glass surface a super smooth slippery seal. It doesn’t matter how heavy the rain or how tough the driving conditions, the repellency properties repel everything away leaving you with clear safe vision. In turn saving you money with not having to buy new wiper blades cool aye!
