    Glass Coatings — How to remove Haze?

    It seems like all glass coatings leave a haze after application. Most coatings I have used say to wipe off excess within 1 minute of application. Flashing occurs quickly and the remainder is to be wiped off with a mf towel. There is a lot of hazy residue that cannot be wiped off.

    How do you remove the residue? With glass cleaner? Will it come off with next wash? Have not tried glass cleaner as I am afraid it will remove the coating....will it?

    Thanks.

    Re: Glass Coatings — How to remove Haze?

    I never had this issue. Just use more than one towel to wipe off the coating residue, work smaller areas so you don’t give it that much time to get sticky. I think the product that has given me the most trouble was Aquapel and even that one wasn’t terrible, just need to work fast.
    McKee’s glass coating is what i usually go for and as long as it’s not super humid, it’s not hard to apply. I have tweaked my method though, I apply it like a normal coating (block and suede towel) instead of spraying and using that foam applicator. I think it’s more evenly distributed that way and it makes leveling easier.

    A damp MF towel should remove any haze.

    Question: Which coating are you using? Something sold on AG?
    I have now used a few but try either a glass cleaner or a quick detailer or just mist with water and wipe it away.
