    Windows!!!

    Can anyone help me with my windows? I have tried numerous things. From newspaper and vinegar to invisible glass. and i still get streaks. Is there something i am doing wrong? is there any product that anyone knows of that works great? any tips or help would be great as we all know 4th generation f-bodies windshields are the worst to clean. Thanks in advance!

    What kind/type of cloth are you using to clean the windows?

    I've had bad luck with MC and windows... not sure why. Maybe because I have crappy microfiber. LOL. Best I've used is a waffle weave cloth, otherwise just try a soft cotton towel and see if that helps. And make sure you don't wash the towel with fabric softner or softner sheets.

    Invisible glass and lots of paper towels seems to work great.

    I just wipe them down with the towel after washing my car. I do have to be careful because sometimes my wife forgets and doesnt rinse twice or puts a dryer sheet in the dryer. That causes major streaking!

    I use the blue shop towels you can get at any auto parts store, they're kinda like a sturdy paper towel, and haven't had problems with streaking.

    I use windsheld wiper fluid and terry cloth towels, then I wipe the windows with microfiber towels to remove the lint from the terry cloth towels.

    I just used the Invisible Glass in the can NOT THE BOTTLE. The can seemed to cause alot less streaking and smearing. I wiped off the Invisible Glass with a paper towel then wiped over it again with a mirco fiber. Seemed to do a decent job. Thanks for the input from you all. Hopefully this will help someone out.

    Windex here. I never bother try cleaning them in direct sunlight. 2 MF towels, 1 for cleaning and the other to remove excess, immediately. Sometimes it's needed to go over it again with the 2nd towel to remove streaks. Streaks are the product drying onto the glass.

    I also do the interior left to right and exterior up and down, so if I missed a spot, I know which side it's on.
