I have found that Chadwick's Triple Play that I use for detailing does a good job of doing windows. Any glass requires a good buffing to clean. It also helps with shedding rain like Rain-X does.

You've never had a baby have you?

SPRAY AWAY glass cleaner is by far the best glass cleaner I have ever used. You can use it on everything since it is amonia free. You can use it on your car windows, mirrors, lights, household glass/mirrors, bathroom hardware, faucets, plastics, laptop screens, some TV screens, etc ,etc does not damage anything and leaves a streak free clean, 100% guranteed. Nice smell to it as well. Its like the Franks hot sauce of glass cleaner, " I use that sh.. on everything!".

I have used Invisible Glass, all types of Windex amonia/ amonia free/ aerosol/ non aerosol, commercial cleaners like Zep (which is in 2nd place in my personal rankings), Sparkle, Kaboom, Fantastic, and on and on. I used to own a small commercial cleaning business and this is all we used on glass/mirrors and bathroom faucets, period, no competition whatsoever, at this price point! For a short period of time I also did car detailing on the side and again this product made life easy.

As many have said you want a glass cleaner that is amonia free, and is an aerosol/ spray foam. Put it on lightly, a little goes a long way. I use the blue Shop paper towels, they come in a roll/box and absorb like crazy, so again on the paper towel a little goes a long way. If its a really dirty window then I suggest you clean it at least twice, dont gob it on with the thinking that if you douse it that it will clean more or be more effective. Like any cleaners, repeated cleaning is better than over spraying (this may cause streaks no matter what your using).

I am not a rep for this company, it has always been my favorite cleaner, period. I appreciate products that work great, and are priced very low! You can buy this at your local Walmart, Home Depot, etc, at Home Depot it is $2.39 a can usually, has even been on sale at HD for $1.98 at points. Dont waste your money on more expensive glass cleaners because they come with a premium name, Im sure Adams works great but its almost $10 a bottle! Im sure Griots is good too, but again pricey for glass cleaner (Griots makes great quick detailer spray, I have also used plenty of these type of detailers; and have been the happiest with Griots. Their detailer spray is in the median as far as price point).

Ok, Im done now raving about Spray Away glass cleaner, sorry its just a great product. Cleaning glass can be very frustrating, like when you think you got it looking good; then you drive at night, and see all the streaks/fogging.

Go get it you will not be disappointed!

I know the power of ZEP it's our cleaning product @ work, awesome stuff

I used to use 1tsp dawn, 1tsp vinegar, and 1tsp rubbing alcohol, the rest water in a squirt bottle----also worked great and no ****** smell

And as OP stated earlier, if you use newspaper instead of towels or clothes, almost anything will work streak-free

+1 Spray Away. I keep a can in each vehicle since the dog loves to shove his nose against everything and this will instantly remove his smears and not streak.

It all depends on the humidity. I've noticed on high humidity days, i get a lot of streaks (haze too) and on low humidity days, the window cleaner works pretty good.

Rain-X

Best and only window cleaner I use anymore is Rain-X 2-in-1 glass cleaner/ rain repellant. It is like $5ish at Walmart, gives an amazing streak free clean and water just beads off the glass for a good 2-3 weeks.
