I swear by Stoner Invisible Glass and a good microfiber cloth. I started using it in high school when I had aftermarket tinting and I've stuck with it every since.

Window cleaning question

Walmart should have it, look with all the automotive cleaners. Maybe Target.

Cool, thanks. They have one with a built in water repellent too.

Using things like Invisible Glass is great but they eventually leave a silicone build up that you have to remove and normal washing won't do that.

Notice that Stoner also sells a glass cleaner in a small bottle, you don't need very much.
I use Toluene which is available cheaply in pints from the paint store. (I also use it for lots of other things, hence the bulk buy) toluene is the active ingredient in Goo Gone, etc and in some paint removers. It sure cleans brushes right up. Wear gloves.

Again, you don't need much.

I've come away from things like Invisible Glass although its hard to argue with the convenience. Again, as I stated before...just use the new polymer waxes over sparkling clean glass and as soon as I source some of that ReJex that Eastbeach repped I'll probably switch to that.

A little less convenient than the purpose sold stuff but same results, if not better, and for far less money.

Plus you can clean them off with some Simple Green or dish detergent....no need for kidney destroying chemicals.

Rejex:

dust, dirt and water spot are all effortlessly wiped away with a micro fiber.

it really is very impressive.

You have to be very careful if you don't know where your going, because you may not get there.

I use windex and news paper instead of cloth. The news paper prevents streaks....

I use 3M glass cleaner. Tbh this is an area I really don't see much of a difference between products for windows it really just depends on your technique.

The best glass cleaner is white vinegar & newspaper. Put the vinegar in a spray bottle & use the Sunday comics for the best results.

What mike said, water+vinegar+newspaper=cleanest windows ever

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

~George Carlin
