Car windshield cleaners that doesn't suck

I have tried several window cleaners for my car windshield and I can't find one that does not leave streaks. It's the kind that you can't see till the sun is facing you and you think your windshield is clean and then, holy crap it's covered in streaks.

Any recs on cleaner and maybe the type of micro towel to use? And also any other interior/exterior recs for keeping things new and clean.

Try using newspaper instead of cloth or paper towels.

That and windex and I'm fine.

Bottle filled with cleaning vinegar.

Works on mirrors also.

Dont forget to clean the inside of the windshield from all the shite your breathe out.

Inside don't spray directly on windshield. Spray on cloth alto minimize dripping.

Its acidic.

Windex paper towel then microfiber towel.

But nothing will work if you do it in the sun.

I tried sprayway and it left a residue so bad it took work to get it off. I think it is what started the issue with me.

Newspaper.

Sounds crazy but it doesn’t leave streaks and regular cleaners work just fine with it

All you need is invisible glass and microfiber glass towels.
Amazon - glass microfiber towels

If you want to get really crazy pickup some on a handle so you can get the corners on the inside.
Amazon - window cleaner attachment

I get a spray bottle and add water then a little vinegar and a couple drops of dish soap in it. Spray it on my windhshield and scrape it off with a flat razor. I come back with Rain-ex 2 in 1 and wipe it down it a clean microfiber towel. Water runs off real nice and no streaks. I only do the razor blade thing about 3 times a year.

The key really is the towel. A microfiber waffle-weave pattern towel will make a major difference- no streaks or smudges.

I detail cars as my side hustle and that's my secret weapon for amazing glass. You're welcome.

This sounds like strong advice in other places that require wiping.
