Steel wool and BMW auto glass
Hello all. Time for a tip on car care. I read this on another forum and thought I'd share this for when we all receive our new 2 series coupes.
#0000 Steel Wool. This stuff should be in your automotive care supply kit. Most especially if you have a vehicle that is left out in the elements. You can buy this product at Home Depot or even online. You will also need a quality glass cleaner, or in severe cases, a 1:10 CLR & distilled water solution.
Why do you need this? Those water spots that don't ever seem to go away on your car windows... that spotty film that the wipers cant clear and make your windshield into a giant vision blurring cataract, that's why. A cloth or paper towel just can't remove the mineral build up causing those scab-like distortions.
How do you do this? Simple. You spray the exterior window surface liberally with glass cleaner (or on to a clean towel if using CLR), then using a very light even pressure, you work the steel wool in small circles as if you are applying a wax. The #0000 grade wool is extremely fine and soft, and will not damage your windows at all, but has enough scuff to slough off those filthy mineral barnacles that have inhabited your otherwise pristine vehicle.
Even cars in great condition can see some improvement. One bag of wool is enough for about two dozen cars, and for about $5 and 20 minutes of elbow grease, you can enjoy absolute clarity in your vehicle.
