    windsheld clean up

    what do you use to clean your windsheld? on mine, it has a layer of grease or oil... makes the visibility really bad on rainy days.

    i tried 409, but it doesn't really get the grease out.

    I like a product called "Invisible Glass" made by Stoner (great company name...). It's not perfect but its good.

    I have just put in the Rain-X washer fluid but I'm having mixed feelings about it. As you say, it's brilliant when it's raining; the water just flies off and you hardly need to wipe at all. But I'm having a problem with its performance when it's just damp and there's a lot of spray. It doesn't seem to be very good at clearing the dirt off the screen and seems to leave a lot of streaks. I now have a distinct line across my screen where the right-hand wiper stops, which is very annoying.

    Something that works for me is that Bon-ami cleaner powder stuff in the gold can. It gets the grease off that causes that streaking. Granted, the mess all comes back in a month or so, but it works in the meantime.
