I need to know what a good way to clean windows is. At night there are tons of little spots on my windsheild but I am not sure if these are pits or spots on the window.


Also how do you get wax off or rubber and plastic side molding?

Try Gel-gloss from Home Depot or similar store.
It'll rub pretty much everything off your glass and leave a very smooth, silky finish. Unless the spots are actually pits.

If they're tree sap, try "Goof off" or "Goo gone".

What are you using to clean your windows now?

Looking at my front glass really closely its full of tiny pits.
Looks like there is a wind sheild in my near future unless there is something I can use to get by a little longer.

I was using some type of glass cleaner and my father in law gave me. Its the stuff they use at his dealership ( hes a mechanic ) when they wash the cars there.

Can you get a list from your father-in-law of all the stuff they use at the dealership to detail their cars?
