    Newspaper Trick For Small Scratches On Windshield?

    I've heard a wet newspaper will take care of this, or is it just a myth?? Anyone tried it?

    I'm also considering waxing the windshield occasionally when I do the paint just to possibly help prevent this from happening again, but I've heard that might cause the glass to turn yellow?!

    I've never had a car where the windshield scratched up like this, but like I said, they are small scratches and I'm very fussy. Normally I use AC Delco "Glass Cleaner" part # 992727 and it is VERY good.

    I have many customers that out our product on the glass, including the windshield, it works like Rain-X. Stone chips and scratches on your winshield (depending on where you live and drive) are very common, sand blasting for people that live and drive around the Shore points is another big problem. There are glass polishing kits from companies like Eastwood, people have reported mixed results, we never had much luck with the polishing kits for glass.

    Thanks. I used Turtle spray wax and made it nice and glossy, slick to the touch. Hopefully if I do this occasionally it won't scratch. I won't even put my side windows down if the car is dusty! I've seen some older cars with nice scratched in a straight line from abrasion..

    That is usually because small stones can get between the wetherstripping and glass and scarch the side windows as the go up and down, I have seen that many times.
