Automotive Surfactant in Car Windshield

    Do you have a successful story to tell how do you manage to eliminate soap or sun dried water residues which stuck on the windshield unreachable for wipers to clean.

    And old show car trick is Bon Ami cleanser. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER COMMON ABRASIVE CLEANSER. Things like Comet and Ajax will scratch the glass. Wet the glass, sprinkle a dusting of Bon Ami, use an old T-shirt scrap or similar soft cloth and scrub. Rinse and you're done. Follow up with Rain-X and the wipers will work better.

    Bon Ami has been around a long time. It's logo is a chick standing in front of a cracked-open egg with the slogan "Hasn't scratched yet". If you know anything about chickens it makes sense. Some more urban types are often left scratching their heads.
