Re: Cleaning windscreen

Just done mine with the rain water again. No smears and easy running wipers. Think about it, when does your windscreen look its cleanest with no bug marks or marks? Straight after a good shower.

Rain water is practically the same as distilled water so that makes perfect sense.

Sadly, this is one of the (very few) disadvantages of living in the middle of the countryside. My poor, recently-polished Punto is now covered in quite a large portion of this year's harvest... -- and all the rain does is distribute the nicely-ploughed tilth on top of this....

Re: Cleaning windscreen

fancy suggestings something else then? never really thought about it

@Andy Monty for g4 it says 'remove excess with a damp cloth'...how does it dry then, just to a haze and evaporate?

also, in what circumstances would you need to use G2 to remove it?

Re: Cleaning windscreen

I go through a car wash when they are dirty and use the packets of wipes and buff them about twice a year. Hoover the car every year if its lucky. But then I really don't give a flying figgot and haven't run anyone over yet

Re: Cleaning windscreen

@Andy Monty right okay. So once the G1 coats are applied (supposed to last a thousands of miles) how would you advise cleaning the windows thereafter, using g4, or just a normal glass cleaner such as autoglym stuff?

Also, do you know what the guy is applying it with?
