  • Premium Glass Towel - Waffle Weave (for the final wipe and buff)

The box cleaning method of cleaning means doing the four corners of your window first, then you go up and down, then left to right motion when wiping your glass. This is the initial wipe to make sure you remove the majority of the dirt that is on your window.

2. Clay the glass

Next step is the claying stage. Get your clay bar and clay lubricant. Spray a bit of the clay lubricant directly into the clay bar. Spray more clay lubricant into your window and then rub the clay bar into your window.
