I get good results with ammonia-free windex and plain old newspaper. If you do it when the windows are warm after being outdoors, the windex evaporates right off after a couple wipes.

I don't believe you really use newspaper to wipe off your windows. Can i use it just to dry em off after I wash the car?

Microfiber cloths work the best.

They don't scrath (although they feel like they would) and you don't have to use any cleaning sprays.

Newspaper is nothing new. People have been using it for a long time. Never get streaks. You'd be amazed how well it works over paper towels for instance. Cheap too

As a followup, what do you recommend for cleaning the inside of the windows? The inside gets that nasty film on it from the gases released from all the vinyls and plastics. Everything I use seems to just spread it around. Lots of times it will look clean, then a day later it will be foggy again.

i know one company claims that their protectant doesn't build up film on the inside of the windows. i'm not sure if this would actually rememdy the problem though, sorry.

Try use a clean damp cloth to wipe on window. Then use a clean dry cloth to wipe until dry. Do NOT wait til the window is dry before wiping.....doesn't work that way. Been doing that for the past 10 years.....Never fails.

Driving with window(s) down will cause dirt and dust to accumulate on the inside surfaces of windows really fast. If you don't care to wipe windows almost everyday to keep it clean, avoid such practices.

My 2 cents.
