How to remove future from windscreen ?
Posted by Michaeld4500 on Friday, December 05, 2014 11:15 PM

I coated a windshield with future, the front is perfect but the rear seems to have a run mark in the middle of it, I tried polish it out but it still there. What can I do to remove the future without damaging it and redo coat it ? Thanks

Either household ammonia or rubbing alcohol will remove Future immediately without damaging plastic at all.

Though I haven't tried it, apparently Windex works well for removing Future.

Windex (Glass Plus, etc.) contains ammonia which as Snake45 mentioned, will remove Future.

Windex removes future.  I use this all the time.
