    Oh yeah?? really??? wtf? I never slam anybody for using something I think is a waste of money, by all means go buy it. If you think stoner's works great, keep buying it.
    And I'm not mean, I just have a low tolerance for stupidity and people that act like they are experts on something they have no experience doing. :stayontopic:

    I wish I can link as a reminder to you your posts about clay bar. Despite all the people that chimed in that it worked, you kept telling others that using compound is better (albeit thinning paint but hey, it's YOUR truck, not ours). But those were deleted for a reason. And it wasn't because you were a nice guy.

    You talk about people talking like they are experts on something that they have no experience on.

    I'm not sure about you but for most of us, spraying and wiping a window is not rocket science. Spray, wipe. Easy. But perhaps you have MORE EXPERIENCE (and maybe some type of expert certification). If it does what is expected, then it works. There is a poll up above and at this point there's a whole bunch of people that must not be "experienced" for the product that you are calling a waste of money seems to be the most popular so far.

    So yeah. REALLY.

    Geeze. I've never seen anyone get so upset over other people liking a product. And THAT to me, is stupidity. So please. Have tolerance for yourself. Seriously. I hope your blood pressure is okay. Wouldn't want you to burst an artery or anything.

    Wow its just a can of glass cleaner. I like Stoners pretty good, but after using Sprayway I found it does a better job for me. The way I see it is its ur truck buy what makes u happy, but at least experiment to see which one you like best.

    FWIW I already posted to this thread but I need to chime in on this flame fest. As I said before I use "IG" and I've been using it for a long time and I think it works great. As for popularity here in Hawaii I dont think it's as popular as in the states most people just use "the cheapest" product you can get their hands on. As for spray away I'd try it if I could find it locally. And again on the whole popular thing. Just cause it's popular dosent make it good.... Look @ Fram filters.

    I found 1 can of the Spray Away at Home Depot and I also bought a bottle of Invisible glass to try out. Wow...I love the Spray Away! I had been using A glass cleaner by ArmorAll and it sucks. That SA really cleans good and doesnt leave smudges. I will try the Invisble Glass next but I cant see how it could be any better.....Thanks!
