Cleaning Inside Rear Window Around Defroster Grid

Does anyone have any tips for cleaning the inside rear window of my car. When I try to clean with windex and a microfiber towel I get residue I think from the defroster/radio antenna grid glued to the window. It is about impossible to get it clean. I was thinking about using a mild LCD screen cleaner liquid instead.

Make sure you wipe the direction of the grid. Going against it won't clean the window.

Thanks, I will try a straight swipe horizontally from one edge to the other. I still think I need a different cleaner too.

I love Invisible Glass! I have never been able to get streak free glass until I tried this. I wash with microfiber then buff good with a clean dry microfiber and no streaks and it acts just like RainX on my windshield, haven't used wipers since I started using Invisible Glass.
And to remove waterspots and make your glass really clear try DP Glass Restorer, and don't forget your mirrors are glass too.

Thanks. There aren't any Walmart's in the Boston city area because it is too expensive rent for them... I will try some other stores to see if they have it.

I've seen Stoners Invisible Glass in all auto part stores and Target, should be pretty easy to find.

Get a gallon of Meguiar's Detailer Glass Cleaner concentrate. At 10:1, it makes 11 gallons of cleaner for $17.99.

I like it better than Invisible Glass.

Acronyms are for lazy people.
So what does XB70 mean?

See the avatar? It was North American's Mach 3 bomber. Only 2 prototypes were built, one crashed and the other is in the Air Force museum. The Soviets thought it was going into production and designed and built the MiG 25 Foxbat, a Mach 3 interceptor that had to have its engines replaced after every Mach 3 flight.

The XB70 was so fast, North American had trouble keeping paint much less a wax/sealant on it.





You can still find bits of the plane at the crash site.
