Peanuts, how and why? Scraping hard to reach back glass

Recommended Posts

How do you end up with peanuts on defroster lines? Is it from squeegying upward instead of sideways? I have seen alot of this but never done it myself as ive only done a few cars, mostly trucks so far, but i want to know how to fix it before it happens to me. I dry shrink with a dryer sheet and heat gun. I live in fl. If that matters. I have heard about the 0000 steel wool trick, which i will be doing on most cars as well. Also what are you guys using to scrape glue off hard to reach rear windows where your hand wont reach?

the blue scrubber is from a pet supply store. 

The other is a heated and curved old bulldozer. :thumb 


You can also use a white scrubby pad and a bulldozer. Just use the bulldozer to hold the scrubby pad against the glass as you scrub.

just remember. Plastic only on defrosters(other than four ought steel wool). No razor blades. :nono


the Gator Blade is also a good thing to have around. :yep 

I have a gator blade which is what ive been using on them but its getting worn out, are the plastic razor blades okay to use on the defrosters?
