    Clean windshield

    I can't clean the windshield without streaking.
    I use a combination of paper towel and microfiber towels.
    There is always streaks on the glass.

    Can anyone offer me advice on cleaning windshield? I am so frustrated with this issue.

    Re: Clean windshield

    What glass cleaner are you using? Is there any coating on the glass (ie Sealant, Wax, etc)?

    I use chemical guys glass cleaner. There is no wax or other coating on windshe.

    I clean the windshield with paper towel first to get rid of heavy stains then follow up with microfiber towel

    Invisible glass and a fresh virgin MF Rag. If you're still getting streaks try wiping it down with alcohol first then use Invisible Glass. Could be a ton of evaporated solvents on it, especially on newer cars where the interiors gas-off for a while.

    Interior glass cleaning was always a pain, until I used this! No cleaners needed. Never would have believed it till I used it. Clean streak free glass!

    Re: Clean windshield

    Here is what I’ve been doing after finding it on YouTube:

    Step 1 - get a magic eraser(or store brand they are all the same), spray it with an APC the rub on glass. Mop up with a microfiber towel or I’m sure a paper towel will work just fine also.

    Step 2 - Now use a glass cleaner of choice. Again mop up when done.

    Step 3 - Spray on and wipe off a spray wax. This will make future cleanings easier and act like rainx.

    It might be over kill but I repeat each step twice and do both inside and outside glass.

    Don’t use this method on third party tinted windows.

    Re: Clean windshield

    My process is simple. 2 microfiber towels, one for cleaning and one for buffing. I spray one spray of a select glass cleaner on the window and a few on the towel. Wipe the whole window down and switch to the buffing towel. Try to switch and buff off excess cleaner as fast as you can so it dosnt dry and streak. Hasn’t let me down yet.

    I’m guessing I would have to clean my glass good first and the following cleanings will not need any cleaner, right?

    Re: Clean windshield

    Over the years (and I'm 65) I've tried many cleaners and methods for glass and have found that what works today might not work tomorrow. You think you've finally got it figured out when you get some really nice results only to find that the exact same product and process might not work as well next week.

    That said, my best results recently have been with using plain ole water and multiple cotton terry cloth towels for the final wipe.
