Removing bugs first is important. Wet dryer sheets do this very well. After that you have a mess though. A good cleaning with any carwash followed by a window cleaner.

Streaks are the biggest problem. Make you own window cleaner. : empty spray bottle, 1 part rubbing alcohol, 1 part vinegar, 4 parts water, 1 teaspoon dish soap. Guaranteed streak free windows.! You have to remove bugs first, very important.

Do not wash your window wipes in Fabric Softener.

Dryer sheets leave a residue, but they work well for bugs. I take about 10 to 20 sheets and soak and rinse in warm water to remove the softener additive. Then let them dry. The sheet works just as well with no messy residue left over.
I like the steel wool concept, but want to stay ladder free.
Good ideas here.

I use two different methods for washing the windshield. When I'm at home and washing the coach, I scrub the windshield with the wash brush and whatever detergent I'm cleaning the coach with and then rinse with fresh water. This usually gets the windshield the cleanest, but isn't practical on the road.

When I'm on the road, I pull out my ladder, a small nylon scrubber (palm size) and a spray can of Stoner "Invisible Glass" or "Sprayway", both work well. I use a liberal amount of cleaner and quickly scrub the glass with the nylon scrubber. This removes all the bugs and road debris. Once the glass feels smooth, I liberally spray it again and wipe clean with a clean cloth. This does a pretty good job without leaving streaks.

X2 on Invisible Glass!! I have used it for years for my show cars, and it works better than any commercial glass cleaner, in my opinion.

Same here...
Also for you folks that line up north in Sn*w country - Rain-X makes frost and ice scrape off super easy!!!

SOS pads work same as steel wool, but they don't leave any streaks. I've tried a lot of different things, but nothing better or easier than the SOS pads.
