fogged up windows.

my daily driver and my chevelle windshields have that funky milky sheen that nothing seems to remove. So as a last hurrah, I broke out the cab of bar keepers friend and cleaned the windows with it. I dont know what's in this stuff but it cleans shower doors like no tomorrow and it cleaned the windshields beautifully.
I guess they say it's a little abrasive, just dont rub to hard, try it in a corner first. jim

Re: fogged up windows.

I've used Bon Ami Cleaning Powder for the same purpose for years. A very mild abrasive, with a little grease loosener.

Calcium Carbonate (Limestone) - CAS# 1317-65-3
Feldspar Powder - CAS# 68476-25-5
Sodium Carbonate (Soda Ash) - CAS# 497-19-8
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) - CAS# 144-55-8
C10-C16 Alkylbenzene Sulfonic Acid (Surfactant) - CAS# 68584-22-5

Bar Keeper's probably very similar. I use the Rain-X too, careful to keep off any surface I might want to paint later. It works good for me.

Re: fogged up windows.

Some "00" steel wool and glass cleaner works pretty good too.

Re: fogged up windows.

I was told the milky sheen is caused by the oils in the dash pads exiting from heat.

Jim - ya gotta quit those cigs.....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Re: fogged up windows.

I get a film on the windshield from the PVC emanation (plastics), but it cleans right off with my homemade glass cleaner. It is a 50-50 mix of 91% isopropyl alcohol and distilled water. Cleans that stuff right off.

Re: fogged up windows.

There is some stuff I bought off Amazon and it works to clean any window, used it mainly for the shower glass but it cleaned my car windows really well. I will look for the name of the stuff.
