We all know what a pain-in-the-butt it is to clean the inside windshield on any modern car, especially down at the bottom.

I saw on some forum somewhere that there is a special tool to get down in there and easily get out that gunk in the inner part down there.

Does anyone on here know anything about this ingenious invention????

If your talking about the thing that looks like the bottom of an iron on a handle, yep, I have one..  Bottom line, give me your 20.00 instead of the autoparts store.  This way you wont be cursing everytime you look at it in the unused gadget box.  Kevin.

I have never seen what you are talking about, but the price and description rings a bell.... What's it called?

I heard on some forum that it was really great.... I have a CTS-V that is a real pain to get to.... I'll drop by Advanced Auto Parts and see if I can see one.....

I wish you would have said it was wonderful!!!!

Here's a link to one on eBay: The Glass Master
 
Sounds like a good idea, but yeah, it would probably just end up sitting in a box with my California Car Duster.

Just my .02, pick up some microfiber towels for cleaning glass.  I have never been able to clean windows without making them look worse than they were before, but even with just a water spray the microfiber towels do a great job  Thumbs%20Up

Basically, microfiber is a very fine, soft, synthetic material.  It makes great towels for car care (if you keep them clean!) because of its ability to attract and hold dust and dirt particles, and doesn't "micromar" surfaces like glass, paint, etc. 
 
Any car care store or website should have some microfiber towels for sale.  If you follow that eBay link above into the seller's store, you will find a few for sale.  I got some for cheap a couple months ago at a local "Dollar General" store, just for my windows (I always carry a small one around for my glasses!).  I even saw a  package of them for sale on QVC the other night  Big%20smile

Invisble Glass is a great product, Sprayway is supposed to be just as good.  With the microfiber towels sometimes I don't even use any cleaning products, just wipe the glass directly with the towel.

I don't think dry would have gotten 'er done with mine, didn't even attempt.... Like I said... I smoked in the thing for months. Now that I quit the car still smells like an ashtray after 2 smoke-free months.....

Next time you visit your painless dentist,  ask him if he would'nt mind ordering you some Citrus spray from his catalog. It's pure citrus oils that really kills odors.

Spray that on your carpet and the stench will leave forever.
 
Congrats....you'll never regret. It's been twelve years for me and I tell myself everyday that I hate those things with a passion,,,,just in case.
