NOTHING I've tried gets my windows completely clean. I've tried soapnwater, Windex, AutoZone's cleaner, some other premium priced stuff that's supposedly a gel and window cleaner, but nothing gets my windows clean. They always look streaky, and water spotted.

Can anyone recommend something or some way to get my windows clean and clear?

Thanks

Sonus has a great product that is a glass/chrome polish. That should get the water spots out. I use the Ammonia free Windex and a micro-fiber towel to clean them and they look great.

If there seems to be a lot of buildup on the windows, try using one of the glass polishers like the Sonus brand with some extremely high grit steel wool.

Stoner Invisible Glass. Some of the best stuff I've ever ran across. Give it a shot. WalMart, Target, AutoZone etc all carry it.

Yep, it's great stuff. Works as well as it's advertised to, which is pretty refreshing.

Newspaper with stoner invisible glass. Works awesome for cleaning. [thumb]

If this wont get it off, you may need to try something as mentioned before to get the hard water spots off.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I do remember from my Army days that we used to get that high gloss shine in the mirrors in the latrines using newspapers, so I'm definitely going to try that along with the other methods and products mentioned here...

Thanks for all the great tips!

I've heard Stoner's is amazing, but never seen it myself (to buy). Eagle 20/20's good in my experience, nothing special. DON'T use Windex if you have tint, it has ammonia in it... bad.

But really, the best thing I've ever done is buy a Glass towel off waynestowels.com - swear to god it's amazing. It can clean windows using only water (except when they're horribly dirty). I've used newspapers and they work but they make a mess of your hands (not the windows though, which I never understood?). TRY the towel, it's awe-inspiring, which sounds so stupid!

Update: I picked up a can (aerosol, I was surprised) of Invisible Glass, some microfiber window cleaning towels and, because it was seconds away from raining, some new Rain-Ex wipers (never saw these before!) and it started raining a second or two, literally, after I got the new blades on.

Didn't get a chance to try the Invisible Glass because of the rain, but first thing tomorrow morning...

Glad you found it. Let us know what you think. Also some feedback on the wipers would be great too! [thumb]

Update: used the Stoner's and it did get the windshield and back window pretty clean in the middle but the side windows and the edges of the windshield and back window still have the "waterspots" :(

Maybe a 2nd application will help...
