I would just like your guys/girls opinions on window cleaner, and which you have had the best experience with. Right now, I know that I'm an idiot, but this Armor All shit makes my windows fog up. So if you guys have any suggestions I would really appreciate it. :bigthumbu

I personally have the best results with a microfiber towel, or newspaper. As far as which product, I've always had great success with Stoner's glass cleaner.

Are your window's tinted?

Tips:

Wash glass more then once.
Dont clean window's in direct sunlight, it may cause the cleaner to evaporate, which will leave residual fluid, a haze that will fog.
Lastly, be sure to clean your wiper blades as well.

Also if you windows are tinted DONT use ammonia based cleaner, it causes that purple hue.

see i didnt have good results with stoners invisible glass-it was a lil hazy and i was using a microfiber towel. i think that the windows were just really really cruddy tho cuz they look good now

the best tho is just plain ol windex

well there's your problem. use newspaper, not newsprint...and not fliers....or a cheap free press....has to be a bigger newspaper...not a micro-fiber towel...I guarantee it will be a different outcome

You can also use coffee filters. I've always had great success with some Stoners and a few coffee filters. News paper also works well, but like Schmooot said dont use the glossy print. I've never had any luck with Windex, always streaked for me.

If you have a problem with streaking or hazing try using just a dry cloth, or polishing cloth and buff the windows afterwards. I've never seen any streaks after a small buffing session.

So does anyone know the reason why newpapers work so well instead of regular paper towels? I don't get it...

newspaper is the gear for windows and don't use Armour All on the plastic protecting the gauges on your dash - i reckon it makes it smudge, not clear at all.

Hardness of the fibres -- paper towels are designed to be absorbent, so they have soft fibres capable of holding molecules of water between them. Newspapers cut dirt off the surface, which is why they are not good for waxing your car.

We've already talked about this.

If your windows are super dirty, clean with water or soapy water THEN use invisible glass. It's the best stuff out there. I just use paper towels. If you do it right there won't be any fibers or smudges.
