Default Sillicone dash spray.....remval

Hi All.

Anyone know how to get rid of the dash spray from the inside of my windscreen, I have tried numerous cleaners even cellulose thinner, petrol, white spirit even paraffin and ammonia all to no avail..... Help its driving me crazy at night.

Vinegar with a splash of lemoin juice is supposed to be good for cleaning glass.

Or try one of those glass hob cleaners - the type with the stanley knife blade in a plastic handle but go carefully.

wire wool like what you use to clean a pan and use it dry

Iso Propyl Alcohol (IPA) is as good as you will get for removing silicone overspray from glass, more important is the procedure used due to the risk of spreading the offending silicone rather than removing it, so use some small pieces of absorbent cloth like towelling dampened with IPA , do only small areas at a time changing the cloth for another piece before moving on to the next area to minimise spreading the stuff. Make sure the work area is well ventilated and avoid as much as possible inhaling the fumes. IPA should be available from the local Pharmacy or you can find it in an aerosol can at the well known Electronics Store-M***ins. Failing that or as a follow up after carrying out the above try some neat Lemon Juice to finfish off .

I can second acetone nail varnish remover, I've used it in my car with good success, just make sure you have a window/door open. I also used it in the dash so I could stick some cable clips on it. Cleaned of with water afterwards to get rid of any residue
