Best Way to Clean Glass

SONAX_Glass-Cleaner_wipe-LOWCleaning your car’s glass windows can be a satisfying experience. However, the road to a clearer view can be frustrating! Exterior glass can have road grease and grime that smears and streaks when trying to clean them incorrectly and interior glass can have a stubborn film build up. If you have tinted windows, you need to make sure you’re using a product that is safe for tinted film, too! Using the wrong tools can aid in the frustration with a lint trail left behind. Below is the SONAX recommended way to clean your cars windows. Using this method should leave you with a streak-free shine!

SONAX Polymer Net Shield Does It Again!

223100_SONAX_PNSThere was an interesting discussion recently on Autogeek’s Forum regarding SONAX Polymer Net Shield (click here for the thread). While I have used this product both ways, the application sponge is the most efficient and cost effective way to apply PNS. I have used this on my car and was amazed at the performance. Here in Indiana and garaging my car daily, the application and tight beading lasted about 8 months. This reminded me of an earlier blog post so I decided to re-post it below. Here is the post from February:

What is paint measurement, how do you do it and why is it important?

g826I recently read an article posted from Detailed Image by Ivan Rajic called “Paint Measurements & What They Mean” that I found interesting and thought I would share here on our blog. While most professionals know and understand this measurement, I’m sure many (including myself) do-it-yourself-ers do not. I really liked the tip that he gave that you should inspect vehicles that you’re considering purchasing as well!

Once you know you’re paint’s thickness, turn to SONAX products for polishing and paint correction! HURRY! Take advantage of our August’s special: Buy SONAX Liquid Wax & SONAX Paint Cleaner, get a SONAX Car Wash Shampoo FREE!
