I use Stoner's Invisible glass and a lint-free microfiber towel. Windex BLOWS. I have yet to see streaking with the Invisible Glass stuff...and it's safe on tint!

I use old terry cloth towels. I use one that is soaked in hot water and wipe the window. Then a dry one to wipe it clean. Streak free every time and it removes the film that occurs inside the windshield from the dashboard material.

Ditto on Stoner's Invisible Glass, good stuff. Use with lint free towels or newspaper, clean at least twice inside and out.

I use dishwashing detergent and washcloths, drying it with a cotton towel. If you have tint applied to your windows, Windex will turn the tint bright purple. In some cases, Windex will attack the plastic in your dashboard.

An old-timer told me that the plasticizers in todays dashboards collect on the windshields and are tough to get off. He told me to use vinegar and 91% ethyl alcohol mixed 1:1. "Scrub" the plasticizer off, then wipe clean with a lint-free cloth. Seems to work, but I want to try Invisible Glass.

A bit off topic, but...does anyone know of a product to use on the outside of the windshield to fill in small chips?

I've heard that you should never use Armour All anywhere inside your car (dashboard, seats) because it only contributes to the "film" that coats the inside of the windshield.

The cats don't mind when you spray them with windex and rub them all over your car windows?

Glass cleaner and paper towels. It's not rocket science.

I bought some stuff called Perfect Glass at Linnens 'n Things a couple of weeks ago and have been very impressed after using it once at how clear my vehicle glass has been since. I think its ammonia free as someone else pointed out. Never using windex type stuff again.

Paper towels leave lint. Use newspaper instead.
