By far the biggest hassle when it comes to cleaning your car is doing the windshield/windows.
Many products will just create a haze/film turning into a complete nightmare!

What's the best product you find the best when going for a clear windshield?


TIP: A tip i can share when cleaning your window's is break them up in sections, do only about 1/4 of it at a time and dont spray too much stuff on.

Spray a little on, then with one out of the 2 clothes wipe it all over. Grab your 2nd clothe(bone dry) and rub everywhere making sure you get all of the product off/marks.

i usually just use my shammy and start from the top and go all the way across then back until your at the bottom. i do it two times and it usually leaves no streaks.

I was a big fan of BetaClean GC-800 glass cleaner for a while. You can get it at Novus auto glass. I was running low one day and needed to touch up some windows so I decided to try some of my X-Gloss detail spray and a microfibre towel and holy crap! it worked really well. Windows were streak free and a little bonus, they got a polymer coating to help repel water thanks to the X-Gloss chemical makeup.

I ran out of normal glass cleaner one day too, looked around and saw "showroom shine" a temp. polish for the paint and it just works wonders on windows!

The best stuff I've found is Stoner window cleaner. you can pick it up at canadian tire or parts source. Its byfar the best stuff I've used, and if you ask someone who knows me, I'm obsessive when it comes to cleaning my car haha

At work we have AC Delco cleaner it works awesome on windows. It's a foam that evaporates after a while after you spray it if you leave it alone. When you shammy it in it leaves no streaks!

I use this foaming window cleaner called Bon-ami i think lol.

Spray it on and wipe it off with some paper-towel and it does absolute wonders! No streaks, no residue, no nothing but clearness
