I use rain x window cleaner in an aerosol can for the exterior. No issues so far. But I haven't found anything good for the interior that doesn't leave streaks. They say use newspaper with whatever cleaner bc it doesn't streak. But never have any on hand when I want to try

Rubbing alcohol. It is THE BEST thing I have found. Im not ****tin ya. I used to have the same problem. Wont mess up your tint and leaves your windows streaky free. The key....don't put to much on ur mf towel or it will streak like a mofo. just a little bit then wipe and then wipe with the dry side and BAM.. lmao.

I've always had good luck just using quick detailer in the windows....I've used Mothers, Meguiars, and currently quick detailer made by Surf City Garage.....with a clean microfiber it doesn't streak plus that normal haze you get on the inside of the windows just wipes right off.

If it's the ammonia based version, yes, it will over time.

Take some water mixed with dawn and some 00 grade steel wool and clean all your windows. This will remove any oils and chemicals and stuff you have layered on there that will streak.

If you have tint do not use the steel wool on the actual tint..

Do 2 coats of rain-x on the outside of the windows like the instructions say.

Find a nice lint free towel and just use a spray bottle with regular water to clean and dry the surface in a shaded area while the surface is cool.

If you have lint left behind just vacuum it off with the brush attachment.

Your windows will look perfect

I agree 100% to everyone that said Quick Detailer spray ....one that does not contain wax. I use both my wash n wax to clean and in a pinch use my last detail on glass...works perfectly every time

And FYI...newspaper does kinda work better than a paper towel....but check your hands before touching your new clean car......
