Cleaning windshield using steel wool

I have heard that you can do this with 0000 steel wool. Would like to hear from any others who have done this... Thanks

Yes completely safe, I bought a pack to do the RV but didn't get to it yet. Did it on cars no problem.

I do it before the Rainex coating.

Nooooo. The little particals will rust and speckel anything they get on! Bronze wool is harmless in this regard and softer on the glass.But,its your vehicle,do what u want.

Bull feathers. Just use it dry, never any water or other liquid.

As long as you don't ever drive in the rain I would guess that would be true...

I've had the best luck with wet used dryer sheets. They don't damage clear plastic headlights either, good for front cap bugs and other areas.

I second the used dryer sheets. They work great and they're 'free'.

He wasn't suggesting using it wet when polishing.
He was saying, during the polishing process, fine pieces and specs of steel wool will come off and get in the cracks and crevices of the vehicle and they will then rust (when they get wet) and you'll have a mess.

Maybe after use a good dusting with compressed air is in order.
That's what I've always done.

He also suggested using bronze wool instead.
