Default got oxidized windows?

finally i can share somthing usefull instead of a question . for the longest time i couldnt get the cloudiness off my windows but no luck i tried vinagar and a few other things and lots of elbow grease but in the process of removing my cheesy window tint with a razor blade i was worried about scratching the glass but it didnt hurt it and the same method took the oxidizing off my window very clean and fast. now my windows are crystal clear. hope some one can use this

Bobby78 has a spectacular aura about

very fine steel wool works too. the cloudiness may have clearcoat overspray.

so you just scrape the oxidation off the windows no cleaners? was the window dry? i know that i got a lil overspray on some of the chrome the other day and it wiped right of with mineral spirits on a cotton rag, cleaned the glass real good too.
