Glass and upholstery cleaning

OK, tried TuffStuff and Invisible glass today on the car(s)

TuffSuff Works REALLY well! Got things out that I thought
was a permanent part of the seat. Coffee my GF spilled
came right out, along with a rollerball pen that fell between
the cushion.

Invisible Glass was great, but you had to really work at it to
get the years of outgassing and grime to come off the glass.

I found that if you start out with three towels it works best.
The first is to clean the glass with lots of the spray.
The second is to get the grime off.
Third is to "polish" it out and get rid of streaks.

The last part is critical. It has to be completely DRY so you
don't smear the junk all over the window again. When the
last towel is too wet to use for polishing, then I use it for the
second step and get a new, clean one for the polishing.

BTW, Costco has 36 Microfiber towels for less than $20.

Next week I'm going to clean and polish the outside and take
care of some small scratches...

Re: Glass and upholstery cleaning

As as side note, I used Meguires Plast-X as directed on my 4.5 year old headlights. Notable improvement on light output.

up on the Invisible Glass

I'll have to try TuffStuff again when the weather is warmer. I tried using the Mr. Clean Magic Sponge thing ('cuz it would be drier) over the X-mas holiday 'cuz I wanted to also do a Scotchguard spray B4 it got REALLY messy out here, but it didn't do the entire job (I have spots on the driver's seatback).  I'll try the Tuff Stuff on the seatback should it get warmer here, then re-Scotchguard.

Re: Glass and upholstery cleaning

I've been thinking about the scotch gaurd.  Does it work well?  I love the tuff stuff.

I love STP Tuff Muff. It's a miracle in a can.

Re: Glass and upholstery cleaning

I like my muffs on the soft side or not at all.

It's better than not treating. Causes liquids to bead, so if you're fast enough, you can wipe off a spill before it gets a chance to stain. Otherwise any spill seems to cause insta-stains on the parchment fabric of our seats. (should've held out for the Premium Package).

It's better than treating with bed cleaning. Causes liquids to bead, so if you're fast enough, you can wipe off a spill before it gets a chance to stain. Otherwise any spill seems to cause insta-stains on the parchment fabric of our seats. (should've held out for the Premium Package).
