    I've tried just about everything and nothing worked. Searched homemade glass cleaners and this is by far the best I've used, and even more important, its cheap!



    To a 32 oz spray bottle add (reg. size);
    • 1 cup vinegar
    • 2 tsp of liquid soap
    • fill with water & you're good to go.
    BTW; doubles as an excellent wood floor cleaner.

    I think you might be picking up some of your dash cleaning residue which is clouding the inside of your windshield. I know this was my problem until...

    Hope this helps.

    I am a professional detailer, i have tried many different glass cleaning product.

    THE BEST I have USED is *Adams Glass Cleaner*
    Pricey stuff, about $40 a gallon, but it is THE BEST GLASS CLEANER.

    Be careful because vinegar takes wax off.

    Whenever I wash my truck I take this wax

    and do the windows. The water beads off and it looks super clean.

    Wax will leave a film that is pliable and will streak and blur vision once the wipers are used. It is not a good idea at all. The products Boyd mentioned a few post back are worth the money. I get close to 3 months of protection in a rainy environment. I have stopped using other products to clean the outside windows of my vehicles.

    And as an added bonus the products work great on my home windows as well.

    Does the CRL get the water stains off? I tried Mothers and that did nothing then I tried Meguiar's water spot remover and that did much better but I can still see them pretty easily.
