I'm thinking about using a razerblade to strip/clean my windshield. While facing bright light (THE SUN), I see little particles all over the windshield, which cant be washed off. I am worried because I heard a razor blade can do more damage than good, by adding new scratches. What do you guys think?
I tinted windows for years. Razor blades are ok on our cars. Just be careful. Some high-end Mercedes, some Fords, some Volvos and a few others cant take a razor blade. The glass is really soft and I wouldnt recommend anything sharp on those. Those cars will get scratched. In the tinting world, they make plastic, blunt-ended scrapers to remove inspection stickers and such.
I use "BarKeepers Helper" on glass. It has a little grit to cut any crud and washes off clean. I have never liked Rain X. Everytime I use it the wipers start to chatter, drag, and leave black streaks after a couple of months. Rain X is a coating and all coatings must wear off. Just my .02
