Hey folks,
Recently I started using Windex to spot clean my Shark. It does a nice job of removing overspray from my tire cleaner and doesnt leave any streaks. Do you think this will be harmful to the paint? Has anyone else tried this? Also, I wash the car constantly (black paint) and because I just like doing it. Am I putting to much water on the car? or does it matter?

Get Zaino Z-6 "Gloss Enhancer" Brings out the shine on the car, that's what I use. Of course I use all of the Zaino products and won't change.

Windex has ammonia in it. I know that you never want to use ammonia products on window tinting because the tinting is slightly porous. The ammonia absorbs through the pores and dissolves the glue holding the tinting to the glass which is usually what has happened when you see a car driving down the street with all those unsightly bubbles. You should just use water or water and a drop or two of a gentle soap to clean your tinting. Having said all that I would be hesitant to use windex on my paint. Rather I would use something made for your car like the Zaino car wash. Dish soap like Dawn will strip off old wax but if you're like me, the more coats of Zaino I get on the car the better it looks so I try to avoid the harsher household cleaners on the car.

Grego,
That makes sense. I had not heard of Zaino until I found this site. I am definitly going to try some.
