Walmart also carries Sprayaway. Been using it for years. Good stuff.

For a cheap "anti fog" use johnsons baby shampoo.
You do this on the "inside" of the windshield?

What's wrong with that? Sometimes, I drag the garden hose in thru the driver side window and just hose it off. It really works great in the summer when the water in my black hose is super hot for a while.

I use 0000 four ought steel wool. Dampen it a bit and your windows will sparkle. Water spots disappear.

I've heard of that. How long does a wad of it last?

I'm 6'2", but I still stand next to the windshield on the passenger side and use the spray cleaner and a towel. I tilt the wheel up on the driver's side anddo the same thing.

I use the same spray on the outside of the windshield. I spray a portion of the windshield and use one of those nylon scrubbing pads (looks like a bunch of nylon thread pressed together) to scrub the area. I spray again with the cleaner and wipe clean. This works great when you can't clean the windshield with soap and water.

Yep, that's what I use. You can also get it at Costco.

The guy that replaced my windshields gave me a tall can of industrial window cleaner and I can't remember if I left it on his tailgate or put it in my MH.

I use Windex as others have mentioned, but wipe it off with a wadded up handful of newspaper. EXELLENT no streak results nearly every time. Been using this trick for years cleaning all windows.

Why does this very same guy appear to be on the verge of a heart attack in every video he presents? It's not that I'm doubting his presentation, but...

Cheap and it works

I have used this home mixture for years. Take a spray bottle and fill it 1/4 with "Denatured Alcohol" 2 drops "Dawn" and the balance with water. This works really well and is super cheap.
