Fill a spray bottle with:

-fill rest of bottle with water
Lightly mix the concoction everytime you use it. Its way cheap, and works just as good if not better than anything you can buy at hte store. I prefer using it at the place I work on the windows cause the Windex leaves a nasty smear.
I'm going to try this out! Thanks.

That stuff is great for cleaning bugs off a hot windshield in the sun.

Doesn't dry so fast you can't get the streaks off like Windex does.

The pump bottle version of invisible glass works just fine for me...

BINGO....any ammonia-free glass cleaner wil work. There are several on the market. I also prefer to use a nice soft microfiber rag as opposed to paper towels, newspapers, etc. I've had tint on my cars for years and never had a problem.

Amonia wont take tint off, that would take a finger of God lol.

^^^ Right on. There are several "tint -safe" cleaners out there that do not contain ammonia, so why take the risk. And yes, it will cloud the tint after several years of use.
