    If you want to see as clearly as an eagle... through your windshield...

    This product is the first glass cleaner I have ever used that is simply superb.
    As a test my grimy Jeep windshield was cleaned with Windex and then even a foam spray type called Invisible glass.
    Then I applied Betaclean GC-800 and let it soak for 30 seconds, before using a scotch brite pad, & then a commercial grade white paper towel.
    Ok well....new grime and brown is suddenly showing in the paper towel.
    Gosh talk about a clean windshield, this stuff is something else. :gr_grin:
    Made by Dow chemical which states it is available globally, your mileage may vary.

    I'll have to try that stuff. An eagle can spot a mouse on the ground from hundreds of feet in the air. Does that mean I'll now be able to drive at night without glasses? ;)

    Where did you buy that at? I've only ever been able to get it at my job but it only comes in our urethane kits for glass installation, they wont ever let me take a can!!

    A friend with a local body shop recommended it, so they buy it in cases.
    I get em for $7 per can.

    An update to the Betaclean glass cleaner.
    It started raining and at night the windshield contained some embedded nasty waxy grime still. This was making visibility poor.
    I think it was was a combo of wax from the roof and even the mother's back to black from rails, that had absorbed a bit in the glass.
    I don't clean my windshield very good or often.
    Have no fear...we have a way to guarantee getting that waxy grime off, here is the secret.

    Soak in the fast orange & then comet into pad, add a bit of warm water, and scrubb the crap out of the "wet" windshield!
    Wax crap be gone, finally with eagle eye clarity restored.:gr_grin: :party52:
