New to glass cleaning

Bit of a week end warrior, am looking at applying sealant to glass. Best method of prep,products, technique would be appreciated. Was looking at rain x? I was considering clay barring my windscreen prior to any products been applied. Many thanks for any help

Not sure how much attention your glass will need without knowing the car. A simple glass cleaner (AF Crystal is my favourite at the minute) may be enough through to needing to run some Ceriglass over the screen.

Either way once cleaned I'd give a wipe over with IPA say a 70:30 mix of water to IPA.

For ease of use and lack of fussiness I'd look at Angelwax H2Go.

If you heat the screen a little prior to application especially this time of year you will be helping yourself out.

MDC250 covered exactly what I would say to be honest. I use Angelwax H2Go and don't get wiper judder but others have reported it. Think the key is good prep and also make sure you're cleaning your wiper blades every wash or more often if necessary. Those who tend to report judder do mention it calms down after a few days but as I say I've never had it personally

I used to use H2GO on my previous car and never once had wiper judder. I applied H2GO on my wife's car a few months ago and the wipers were juddering very bad, the wipers were also brand new. I cleaned the glass a few times with AW Vision and the wipers no longer judder. My previous car and my wife's car both had/have Bosch Aerotwin wiper blades.

Never had wiper judder with H2Go myself and that's across a few different makes and models of car. I'm pretty thorough on prep but by no means expert so I think it's luck of the draw. I think I've read if you wipe the blades with H2Go it helps, but don't quote me!

What is your prep process if you don't mind me asking?

Pretty much as I've posted! I'll start with a glass cleaner if the glass is reasonably clean but today for example I used some 0000 grade wire wool on the Mrs car as the glass on her car gets little attention.

I then wipe down with an IPA mix 70:30. As I understand it, this is one of the most important bits to get right as it gets the glass as clean from any residual oils, dirt, film etc prior to applying H2Go. I always have the screen pre heated to aid the curing.

Once it's fully hazed over the residue is removed with a clean MF. If I get time I put a 2nd layer on. That's me!

I tend to wash, clay, potentially use a glass polish then use cleanser fluid (it's what I've got lying around) however if I've already done that and I'm just topping it up I'll just wash, dry off, use a dedicated glass cleaner and apply!
