    I have those Armor All window wipes for the car but I can't stand them! They leave this nasty residue on the window that is a pain in the ass to get off and they leave little white paper particles all over the windows. What kinds of cleaners do you all use? I also need to find something good for the cloth seats.

    On a side note, the Turtle Wax Ice is like gold! I love that stuff even though it looks like baby batter when you put it on the cloth. :p

    3M window cleaner. I get it free from our detail department at work. It's really good stuff, just spray and wipe with a lint free cloth or microfiber cloth.

    Sprayway and a microfiber rag. I leaned that on this site. Freaking awesome. And cheap. They have it at Home Depot.

    Newspaper. I know if you haven't heard this it sounds crazy but it's an old trick. Something in the ink helps keep from streaking. Only down side is it will leave particles behind if you use one piece too long. Oh and I use ammonia free glass cleaner for the tint.

    Windex and paper towels or microfiber cloths. I tried that Amorall glass cleaner and it is the worst glass cleaner I've ever used!! Rain-X makes a glass cleaner for the interior also that works pretty well also but takes a lot of wiping to get rid of the streaks. I'll have to try the newspaper trick though, never heard of that one before...
