Soap sum can build up on car windows and windshields fter frequent washings. Soap scum has a filmy, white look to it. Remove soap scum with baking soda. The baking soda won't scratch the glass and is non-toxic to animals and people.

Step 1

Pour a cup of baking soda in the bowl. Add 1/4 cup of water and mix together to make a paste. If the mixture is too thick, add another 1/4 cup of water.
