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.
