are we talking inside or outside of windshield?

I only use a wet chamois (water) followed by a dry microfiber for the inside of the windshield, any other type of cleanser seems to leave a residue or streaking that will fog up or collect a film over time (very annoying pet peeve).

Outside, doesn't seem to matter as it never lasts long before it's dirty again or needs reapplied.

It's not 2x the cost. Ask Tom about it. He's a detail freak and has it on his truck and is using it on peoples cars he details.

I love the combo. Easy to use and lasts over 2 months in rainy weather. Does it take a little longer to apply properly, well yes, does it work, .

Do not be afraid to try something different, you might find something you like better than the product you are currently using.

You can also clay bar your windows, and for all the windexers amonia will destroy your tint over time. About as bad as steel wool i guess!

Clay bar the interior window? Never tried that.

Clay bar the exterior window.

Did not feel that it did anything at all.

When I worked in an Art Gallery we always used newspaper to wipe all the glass down for a no streak finish, so I use that now. I have also worked in the production of germicidal UV lamps, here we used Isopropyl alcohol to clean all of the lamps prior to shipping to remove any finger prints or production debris. Now I use Isopropyl in a spray bottle with newspaper to clean the glass in the truck, I find it works great. Albeit, I do try to limit my over spray or at times spray the newspaper first in tight areas.

What should I use to get the haze/film off the inside? I've got some Castle Plexo anti static plastic/glass cleaner. It helped but didn't get it all. Will vinegar and newspaper do it?

Might not hurt to true a decent microfiber glass towel. I have had good luck with them even after repeated uses around the house. My house windows do get pretty dirty, I clean them at least twice a year.

LOL I think I said this before and I know you know better now


Not sure why everyone treats glass like paint but it's not. Do not use clay on your windshield. Glass has pits that will trap the clay making it harder to see unless you can see through clay.

Waffle weave drying cloths work great on windows. I use the ones we sell, although they are a bit large for the job.

I mostly use distilled water to clean the inside of my windows. They rarely get dirty enough to use anything else.
