Steel Wool on Windows? You've Got to be Joking...
Posted on March 01 2021
...and I wish I was! If you're anything like me, you're so confused with the gadgets and gizmos of the car detailing world. However, with very little knowledge, I imagined I had at least a THOUGHT as to what was good for a car and what was bad for one. Also, I think it's worth it to say that I didn't really have a lot of exposure WITH steel wool, other than using it to polish furniture.
Reading up on steel wool now, it's a funny little thing. First introduced in 1896, the product is comprised of "fine and flexible sharp edged steel filaments", which just reminds me of when I was younger and thinking it was about as sharp as a cactus. That stuff HURT if you got it caught on your skin (which, coincidentally, isn't recommended by anyone or anything. Don't do that). So, if it was harsh enough to hurt skin, wouldn't it be awful for glass?
Oh how wrong I was. Using Invisible Glass cleaner for glass and windows, with the aide of steel wool, my glass was practically non existent. It took not even 20 minutes to get all of the windows on and in my car--the results were amazing! Were the windows even there? I was--and even still am--afraid to touch them. Who knew steel wool was so powerful? Well if you didn't know, I'm glad you and I both learned a thing or two.
