How do you clean your car windows

My Windows always come out awful. Streaking and ghostly looking with a sun glare. I normally use windex and a paper towel..

Use griots glass cleaner. Works well. No streaks. Get the kit with the cleaning cloths. It's the best stuff, promise!

Scott Shop Towels and Invisable Glass. Spray, wipe, then buff clean with a new towel.

skidmarks go UNDER the car, not on it ewwww
butt seriously, folks, i just wipe my car all over wit water, & use a shammy & it comes out spotless every time, then i just wipe teinterior withthe damp shammy, thenthrow the shammy in the washing machine.
i use to go to thecar wash, & use the wand, & it didn't take the dirt off; i still had to wipe.
& i can't afford an expensive wash, since i don't get paid for working, unfortunately.

Been struggling with getting the windows clean myself. Especially the front windshield in the morning with sun coming up it looks like a film on the inside of the windshield with streak marks from when I tried to get it cleaned up. Ive tried the invisible glass stuff still cant keep it clean.

What are you using to clean and protect the dash? That evaporates and ends up on the windshield.

I use Meguiars Interior cleaner, great for dash and cluster area, no problems with it evaporating onto the windshield.
