I would never wax glass. In all my years working with glass I have never seen any product that even resembles a wax being used industrially. See here for some more info http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/det...ml#post5602651
I am sure you are correct.. But I have never noticed any issues with it..

No, in fact, it's worse.

People have started buying 55,000 dollar trucks named after dinosaurs and the ocean is now polluted with hair grease from a storm hitting the Jersey Shore.

And they're still making Twilight movies!

Clay is fine.
Not sure that it'll do any good, but it's not going to hurt the glass.

On paint, you get rail dust and pollutants that embed themselves in the relatively soft surface of the paint. Clay grabs these particles and lifts them out of the paint before they begin to oxidize and discolor the paint (this is the source of the "rusty spots" commonly seen on white vehicles).

These particles don't embed themselves into the surface of your glass.

Even what you might think as a soft kitchen pad can be a very bad idea. I used what i thought was a soft pad (a mild scubbing side of a sponge) on the hard water spots of a tinted window of my shell... damaged the hell out of it. Ended up paying a professional glass repair company $100 to fix it.

Clay removes many bonded contaminants, which will/may be on glass no doubt. It's not just about embedded contaminants. Imo, someone should be using ironx before trying to remove rail dust via claybar. Clay bar with bits of rail dust will mar the crap out of paint.

Bad idea. The clay will imbed in the surface of the glass and haze over time causing clarity issues.

ok I am not Trolling SERIOUSLY...

I am confused.... this thread speaks about OO Steel Wool .. Not OOOO Steel wool. The PDF referenced is no longer attached so I cannot read if it talked about OOOO. I have used OOOO Steel Wool to polish windshields of my cars forever and had no staining on the windshields ever.. Again YEARS(8+) of doing this on my car and my parents cars...

I read through the thread and found no scientific proof that OOOO Steel wool is bad for glass. OO though that a freeking no brainer... I have Googled and found nothing that says that OOOO Steel Wool can scratch glass, or create these valleys you guys are talking about.

Please show me this information as I am genuinely interested. Anyone have the PDF saved?

TCbob (founder of site) is member "misc". He took one of my old threads and put it under a new members name so I have no ability to revive the PDF. For any non-believers that STEEL (you know metal) won't scratch glass see here http://www.glasswebsite.com/techcenter/
http://www.winecellarinnovations.com/glasscleaning.pdf

Any steel regardless of 00, 000, 0000, 00000, 000000, 000000, 0000000, 00000000000, 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 shouldn't be rubbed on glass.

Would you rub your paint with it? If not don't rub it on glass. And just because you do rub paint with it doesn't mean you should rub glass with it.
