Cleaning Windows
#1
Anyone have any tips??
I just can't get the windows clean on my 04 Mach.
I have tried everything and I just can't get clean windows Sad Seems everytime I have done them I get smears. I have basically tried everything.

I've tried:

Windex
Windex Auto
Armor All® Glass Cleaner Wipes
Rain-X 2-in-1 Glass Cleaner
Invisible Glass
Vinegar & Water

Its like there is something on my windows that just won't go away.....

Invisible Glass and a clean towel ALWAYS does the trick for me.
Awesome

Hey Matt, how bad of a sneeze was it if you cannot clean the glass? Big Grin

& it is all I use. On any glass. House windows, mirrors or my car's glass items. Just use a clean towel, I've never tried with paper.

But like a menu, there is always something for everyone.

Mat; for the exterior window I use some of my Zaino car wash. I have a mix in a spray bottle I use at car shows to get any bugs off prior to the final detail.

Try Dirtex; it comes in an aerosol can and has ammonia in it. I usually buy it at a hardware store like Home Depot.
