How to Clean Glass using Ultra Fine

Quick-Glo was originally invented in 1957 as a rust/remover, polish for use on (Chromium) Chrome for short.  However over the years Quick-Glo has been proven SUPERIOR to other known cleaners, such as Brasso and Semi-Chrome, that use harmful toxins as a cheap means to remove the tarnish and oxidation.  Also, Quick-Glo customers (Quickies) have tried hundreds of other solutions to their cleaning problems where they found Quick-Glo was clearly the better product over well-known brand names.

Quick-Glo Inventor Ray was ahead of his time by being the first to add wax to his product as a protectant.

Water spots can prove to be an immense annoyance, especially when they make up for their small size with force in numbers. Acid rain spots, however, can prove to be far more troublesome in the long run. It often produces a cloudy or misty effect on the outside of the windows. Acid rain actually can eat into your glass as it dries, and leave permanent marks, similar to what glass shops do to frost glass. To remove these grooves,  detail shops utilize either mechanical or chemical processes.

The mechanical involves the use of rubbing compounds and high-speed buffing wheels, a very messy and labor-intensive method. Not only slinging rubbing compound all over your vehicle, but rubbing compounds contains some real nasty ingredients,

The chemical method involves the use of acidic acid in different concentrations. Using acid to remove acid eching is, pretty risky to both the applier and the vehicle, as well as washing more unnecessary chemicals down the drain.

 If this is your first time to use Quick-Glo or your not sure of the level of etching you have, you should first apply Quick-Glo in a small out-of-the-way spot to see how it works. First spray a light mist of water on your glass to help reduce the temperature of the glass below 90 degrees and to help in applying Quick-Glo to a large area. Start with a small amount, the size of a Quarter, and rub with medium pressure in a circular motion for 20 seconds. The spots will quickly disappear. If you’re happy with the results, wipe off the excess wax with a clean cloth and your done. If there is still some spots present, continue rubbing for another 20 seconds and you’re done. If not, rarely it may take a second application. If it took years to create the etching, it may take several applications. Because you are applying wax during the cleaning process, always wipe with a fresh clean soft cloth when you finish rubbing to remove all excess wax. The remaining wax will prevent future damage to your windows but some users may want to remove the wax from their windshield to prevent wiper bouncing. It is easy and as always quick,  just moisten a rag with Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol and gently rub off the residue.

When using on glass such as a windshield to remove LOVE BUGS you may want to use the original formula to reduce the application time. If the windshield it hot to the touch cool it down with a light spray of water before you start. You should start with an amount the size of a quarter and once again rub gently in a circular motion. Be sure you clean with a fresh cloth to remove excess wax or it will give you a color prism when street lights shine through. If this happens you can simply wipe the windshield with a clean cloth or use your wipers with water to remove the wax.
