"grease??" streak on my windows!!!!!

whenever i wash my car or when my windows get wet, a vertical streak shows up on my passenger window. its a perfect line and not very wide but noticeable. im guessin its from something inside the door and i cant remove it!!! i also have the same type of stubborn streak on my back glass where the rear wiper sits.

i use stoner glass cleaner which is absolutely awesome for everything BUT these streaks!!!

NO I wasn't joking. Steel wool will not hurt glass in any way shape or form. Go to any detail shop and you'll find they use steel wool to clean windows. It'll almost instantly remove anything stuck to the glass and leave it clean and very smooth. I was a professional detailer for years, we used steel wool on $120k cars all the time and it never caused a problem with them and it won't cause a problem with yours.

wow. i guess i woulda figured that the steel wool would just scratch the sh!t out of glass. im gonna try it on a small spot first, just in case. cuz im still a lil skeptic. but thanks a bunch for the info.

first thing to do is find out where the grease is coming from and get rid of that problem. No matter how clean you get your glass it will always streak if you roll your window down through grease.

Yes, you can get very fine steelwool. Just like sandpaper it has different "grits" I think the stuff you are looking for is 00 grit. it will also list on the package that it is for detail work, etc. Also very effective in cleaning soot of your crome exhaust tips.

However, I recently detailed my car and I scrapped the windows with a single edge razor blade then claybared the windows. They are now crystal clear!!
