    For years I used paper towels and Invisible Glass cleaner and thought it did a good job on windows. Well the wife's Honda's interior windows had bad streaks that I couldn't get rid of. So I used what my grandparents (and some posters on here) used - newspaper instead of paper towels. I can't begin to describe how easy this makes cleaning windows :eek: and how great it looks when you're done. Plus it's essentially free, seeing how the newspaper was gonna be recycled anyways.

    Multi-ply paper towel has glue in it, use single ply and it'll work just fine. Such as Bounty Basic.

    newspaper has tons of uses after its read. I usually always clean my windows with it, no lint, and it has just the right amount of grit to get they windows clean. i always use just water.

    good for cleaning the glass doors on a wood stove too, wet and dip in your ash bucket, the ash is a soft abrasive and cleans the soot right of the glass, chemicals can ruin or break the glass once it is heated.
