For the inside, I use DW. She does a good job. I hold her by the feet.....naw! She's able to handle it on her own.

For the outside, I use one of the microfiber MOPS with about a 14 inch span on the microfiber head. Spray Windex on the windshield and mop away. The mops have a long enough handle that I can reach the top of the windshield while staying stable on the ground.

Something a house cleaner showed me they use is just plain rubbing alcohol in a squirt bottle. Cheap, no streaks, works excellent. One problem is the initial fumes when you spritz the glass, otherwise it really works. Randy

We can't use todays newspapers though, soy oil is used for newsprint now, and it makes a mess instead of polishing glass.

AMEN to that!!

I have tried ALL the suggested glass cleaners by folks from here and, other RV forums, Auto forums, clubs and more and, without a doubt, I have yet to find ANY glass cleaner that does not streak. I use good quality, brand new paper towels and have done the inside of our windshield as many as 3 times in a row and, still get some form of streaks. I've used "Vinager and water" "Alcohol and water" and a whole host of other cleaning agents, STILL STREAKED IN THE SUN!!!!

When I bought my VW Passat in 13 it had a film on the inside of the windshield. Tried several window cleaners and water vinegar mix. Nothing worked, could always see streaks. Tried newspaper with one of the cleaners I had, streaks were gone with now ink residue. I did know about the soy ink making a mess but didn't happen to me. Only thing was the newspapers now don't hold together like they did before having a high percentage of recycled content. The only thing I didn't use was the Gel Gloss I use on the outside windows, mainly because of the white powder it leave when it's wiped off.

I've been using Invisible glass ever since I got my first Vette. I never use anything else.
