    Clay Bar on Windscreen?

    HI all,
    just wondering if it is possible...or even advissable to use a clay bar on the windscreen? I have noticed a whole load of tiny specks that remain on the windscreen after cleaning, and not sure how to get rid of them, would a clay bar be best for this? Or could it damage the screen (even though it seems ok on paintwork)?
    Cheers

    As above, claying glass is highly recommended, as the wipers will then work better in addition to having visible benefits.

    As well as claying, can I use merz IP on the windows to remove scratches from a previous crap windcreen wiper?

    You can try without fear of any problems, but in all honesty you'll be lucky if you see any improvement - this is because glass is extremely hard compared to paint, and usually requires specialist cerium oxide based polishes in order to be cut effectively.
