Wax your windows!

First let me start off by saying that I have used Turtle wax on my cars for over 6 years (since i was 16). But I finally tried some synthetic wax from Mothers. It costs a dollar an ounce but is well worth it.
Back to the original post... After waxing the 323, I found that the terry cloths used to remove the wax make an excellent tool to clean the windows. You know, the cloths you usually just wash (or throw away if you are richer than I). Better than the old windex and newspaper trick. And there is a rain-x type affect when they get wet! Awesome!

You can also try Gel-gloss...it's a gentle polish and also removes minor imperfections and stuck on grit and has a rain-x type affect. I use it as a minor scratch remover for paint, metal (rims) and trim. It's saved me many times. It can be used around the house as well (porceling, fiberglass, faucets,aluminim, etc.) It may leave swirl marks on soft plastic. It can be thinned with water to create an ultra-fine polish. ***Try it in an inconspicuous area first to determine if it meets your needs.***

Tip: try hitting any stuck on bird doo (paint/glass/etc.) with warm/semi-hot water. Leave on for a few minutes and try removing. Most bird doo will reconstitute and be easy to remove. If you only have cold water available, spray the bird doo and leave it on a bit longer to accomplish almost the same thing.
