Window sun glare help

I'm finding this an issue lately. I enjoy hauling ass on desolate forest roads. I enjoy it more with non existant traffic, when it cools down and the flys aren't as annoying. So I'm out usually early evening.

I usually only encounter 3-4 motorcrossers, at the most. Maybe a rare camper or a pair of dual sports. And they're never out that late in the day...

At some moments i can't see shit. Curious if anyone can chime in that's had this issue and has developed a solution?

I know exactly what you mean.

When the sun is low in the sky and you're driving west bound into it the glare illuminates any dust and dirt on the windshield and makes it difficult to see.

Carry glass cleaner and some towels. Clean your windshield.

Yeah. Just re-read my op. Derp.

Late afternoon sun completely blinds me. I wear polar glasses. But I take them off and still can't see shit. Hoping to find something to clean the windsheid to make it optically clear.

There we go. Perfectly said.

Well windex, rainex and invisible glass wipes do no worky. Just looking for a "dumbass! everybody uses 'such and such' " response.

First I "pre-clean" the windshield with paper towels and a can of glass cleaner. Then I use a spray can of Invisible Glass and a CLEAN microfiber cloth (16x16). I try to wipe and dry the windshield before the IG begins to run more that about 2 inches.

I use that cloth twice and then get out another...

If I use the microfiber cloth more than 2 or 3 times, I never get all the reflective residue left by the cleaner.
