Just wondering if drier sheets and magic eaters will scratch glass? They don't seem to scratch the nose cones of 5ers so would seem they won't scratch glass either. Anyone know for sure?

What are you trying to clean with dryer sheets? There might be something better...

This "SPECIFIC" brand is AMAZING for cleaning spots off glass.

Use 0000 fine steel wool. I use it all the time without harming the glass. Will clean anything off the glass.

Steel Wool, Flat Razor blade for stickers and such, there are lots of things you can use to clean a windshield. The glass is not very easy to damage. If you have oils and such that just smear while using your wipers, try RainX as a cleaner or F11 if you use it instead of wax. Or, just glass cleaner. I usually use RainX anyway and clean my wiper blades at the same time, so I don't let road oils mess up my windshield. Lately I have been using F11 instead of wax and it cleans the windshield better than anything else I have used.

Magic eraser works great on glass. When i watch auto detailing videos the guys say the foam acts like 4000 grit sandpaper. There is no special cleaning chemical inside. The water is just for lubrication.

You can use a spray cleaner instead of water.
