So I’m no dullard when it comes to detailing - I’ve worked in the past as a detailer for nearly 10 years - but today when driving my brand new Alltrack (less than 2000 miles) I noticed a circular pattern of scoring/etching on the windshield directly in the driver’s view. It’s visibly noticeable but you can’t feel it with a finger.

I must have gotten some sand in my wash mitt!? I can’t imagine that I would be so careless as I keep one wash mitt for my use only and wash it every time.

Is there anything I can do to make these marks less prominent!? Thanks.

That's a tough one as glass is super tough to polish relative to clear coat. CarPro sells glass specific polishing equipment if you have a machine. On my last car, I lazily used a gas station squeegee and scratched the glass. I was never able to improve the scratches and ultimately had insurance process a claim for a replacement.
