Cool, I'm glad to hear it because I have yet to use the sealer on a truck so I was wondering what your thoughts were.

We primarily use it on acid etched glass to seal out fingerprints and tongue lick marks.

Need to keep track of how long it lasts and if it eats up your wipers

Should last at least a year on the other windows.

I usually replace the wiper blades in December each year. My current wiper blades are doing a decent job so no need to replace them. I believe they a Bosch top end blades.

Topped... I just ordered off Amazon. 3 bottles of the cleaner for $15 and one bottle of sealer for $10.

I have OCD when it comes to driving with dirty windows. Makes me fuckin' crazy, so I hope this stuff works as good as advertised. Bonus: I am just as OCD with my shower doors. LOL

the CLR works dude, you will not be disappointed...

the cleaner that takes the spots off is dusty though, so do your windows then wash your truck after (if you going to clean your truck that day anyways)

My truck is 2 months old and the window has no water spots, should I just use the sealer after cleaning it?

The shower doors, on the other hand...

Yes. The sealer will prolong the life of the glass by stopping chemicals and contaminants from acid rain and road contaminants that break down the surface of the glass.


To everyone else if your glass is stained it has started to breakdown. You can clean it but it will stain again unless you seal it.

This thread clearly needs a bump. Ive seen more glass terrorists recommending horrible products in the past few weeks than the previous 5 years.

If you have a question on a safe way to clean your glass thats not already covered in here please ask away.

If you are attempting to use a product not mean for glass on glass and recommending it to other members - for the love of god please stop.

I did this and now have swirls/streaks. I used a damp paper towel to apply cleaner and a microfiber cloth to apply the sealant. What do you think I can do to clean the glass now/ what should I use to clean the glass?

A quick wash with regular car wash soap should do if its the exterior you sealed.

If its interior I'd recommend another coat with slightly moist paper towels (moist w sealer). Rub entire surface fast until it dries streak free.

Do not seal in direct sunlight or you'll never get it 100%.

Ah, I only did outside, so I'll give that a shot. What kind of glass cleaner should I use over this stuff? Simple green is what I was using..

Edit: I see now you said soap and water

I think my sealant has worn off after a couple rains and a wash already, with wiper use, does this stuff need to cure or?

Not completely wore off, but not as good as it was

I do 2 coats and let it cure before my first wash and it lasts me almost a year on the windows that don't have wipers.

It's impossible to tell how long it will last under wipers but I'm starting to think you may have screwed up if you think it's gone after a week. I have no idea what shape your windshield is in, what compound is used in your wipers, and what conditions you use the truck in. I haven't done any formal testing but I personally think it lasts 2/3 times longer than comparably priced products on the market.

Mild soap and water. IMO there is no need to use harsh window cleaners on a truck's exterior glass. Simply wash the windows when you wash the truck.

If you want to know what products are compatible I would call CRL. I do not use glass cleaners on the exterior of my truck so I have no clue.

Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft cloth. Put some of the alcohol on the cloth and rub along the edge of the blade.

Alright, thanks! My old wipers and these new ones both leave a cloudy haze over the windshield with each down swipe which is really annoying, so I'll try cleaning the blade
