Cleaning Windshields

Just out of curiosity, how do you clean the inside of the windshield in your class A? I brought mine home today to clean it and dewinterize it, so I'm laying on the dash trying to clean the drivers side all stretched out. I don't bend and stretch like I used too and Im going to hate to see what it looks like when the sun hits it!

I do it the same way. I'm 6'2", so reachings a little easier. I just get weary of leaning on the dash!
Also, I'm convinced glass cleaning products aren't what the used to be. It seems everything smears!

I have one. I drape a micro-fiber cloth over the oem cloth, it seems to clean a bit better. Our "new" bus is easy to reach without one.


Outside I use 0000 steel wool and a spray bottle of Dawn/water. Squeaky clean!


Stoner invisible glass works very well.

Cleaning Windshields

Window cleaning wand and squeege on inside. I use a concentrated soap made for window cleaning. Leaves a streak free finish.
First time I tried with invisible glass and before that windex. Looked ok but not nearly as good as the squeege method. Also much quicker and easier.

Note: squeege and wand is not a normal car cleaning setup. Lambs wool type of cleaner and high quality squeege. Been using it for years on the S&B.

I use one of the Windshield Wiper style devices and Sprayway Glass Cleaner. I have been using the Sprayway glass cleaner http://www.spraywayinc.com/ since I was in high school, use it on my classic cars, daily drivers and motor home! You can get Sprayway at NAPA and online from Walmart. Sprayway Streakless Glass Cleaner, 19 oz - Walmart.com

I got a few of the Reach & Clean Tool | Invisible Glass because I can use different screw on handles to do inside or outside. I keep one of them just for applying Rainx and it works great.

I don't have any trouble reaching mine. I have found for streak free windows those old nasty brown paper towels like they have in gas station bathrooms work great. I get them from Sams. You can use any of the major window cleaning products to clean the windows and the last step is a mist which is buffed off with the brown towels. I keep the ones that I cleaned the windows with and add 2 new ones to buff.

I use a a microfiber/nylon scrubby cloth from Almost Heaven Microfiber and good old Walmart window cleaner both inside and outside. I don't aim for "super, sparkly" clean so I'm not so disappointed when the first mega-bug hits.

I've bought and tried a bucket full of things to clean the inside of my windows. I finally asked my Mom what she used to use to clean windows. A cup of white vinegar and a tablespoon of ammonia in a gallon of water she said. I mixed some up and washed the inside of my MH windshield. It cleans very well.
At 72 I don't bend well either, so a microfiber cloth pinned on a dedicated new dust mop from the Dollar store works for me.

My Mom and Dad used that and newspaper to clean windows. Works great, newspaper polishes the glass. Probably the same as the brown paper towels dabrooks uses. If you have water spots on windows you can't get off try gel gloss cleaner and polish, really cleans the glass and makes them shine.
