for me its the most tiring and unsatisfactory thing, as i can never reallly clean the windshileld from inside as good as i want , or may be i can never clean it to perfection ,
i use the antifog window cleaner by bmw with a microfiber cloth and i cud still see some very MICRO lint , and on top of that , i cant get to the real bottom of the windshield from inside which makes it more dirty looking from outside ,
am i doin something wrong?
i tried to seearch some thread to go around this prob , but cud not ...
can anyone say some about it , or can refer to some thread posted earlier for cleaning winshields from inside...
any help wud be appreciated
regards
Sak

Your micro fiber towels are a must and Stoner Invisible glass cleaner is the next

:stupid:

I use the two towel method for both the inside and outside of windows for a totally streak free cleaning.

Two towel method-
*Spray window with stoner's invisible glass, wipe with towel. Go back and repeat that step with another clean towel.
**Important, use the same towel for the same step, i.e. the first towel you use on the first window is the first towel you're going to want to use on the next window. So basically you have a dirty towel and a clean towel all the time.

I use Griot's window cleaner wipes--they contain an alcohol based cleaner and get the windows squeaky clean. They also have a spray bottle version, but I like the wipes since you don't get overspray on the dash, door panels, etc.:

Wipe dry with their lint free towels:

For the hard to reach areas close to the bottom of the windshield and rear window, I use their window cleaner kit--it gets to all the tight, hard to reach places:

The point here is not to just spray and wipe, wipe, wipe. You need to spray, wipe, then either switch to a clean towel or flip/fold the towel so you're following up with a clean surface to finish and remove streaks.

Most chain stores carry Stoner's Invisable Glass - I just got some at a local Pep Boys. It's a mostly black spray can with a yellow cap.

I also noticed this time that there is also a spray bottle version, but I haven't tried that version yet.

You can get a 4 pack at Sam's Club for $9

:stupid: Sorry Stream........ no disrespect intended. I love that thing!
I use Sprayway window cleaner though...... about a buck cheaper than Stoners.

Agree that cleaning windows is a pain. The nice folks from First Place Auto LLC in New Jersey (they sell Meguiar's and RaggTopp Products) gave us a neat tip for doing windows. Wipe one direction on one side, and the opposite direction on the other side. That way if you still have streakes, you know which side of the window to go back over instead of chasing the streakes on both sides. They have some other neat detailing tips on thjeir web site www.firstplaceauto******** and they have the super prices on RaggTopp products. Worth checking out.
