How do I get inside car?

Window to have no streaks? I used vinegar and went horizontally on the outside and vertically on the inside. They say not to use windex, but I’m tempted. Any ideas please?

    SPRAYWAY is a great window cleaner and ammonia free. Safe for tinted windows.

    You can buys glass cleaner from the auto parts store.

    Don’t use paper towels for cleaning. I like old white Sox or T-shirt’s because they have actual scrubbing surface. Dry/buff with window microfiber or more clean cotton.

  • Using newspaper instead of paper towels also helps.

    I use windshield washer fluid. It's made for car windows!

      And it is cheaper too! How cleaver!!! I'm on it...after sunset. I use dawn with a window squeegee kit for house windows. One has a bar and a Velcro-removable sheepskin cover, synthetic, and the other is a squeegee. Pour a very thin line of Dawn on the sheepskin tool then suds up with water at the sink or with the hose, run your hand down with pressure one time to remove the excess water, wipe away on the window, use the scrub side of a sponge if the windows are really bad and have gunk stuck, then squeegee by going down in rows from top to bottom (or side to side starting at the top), at the end of each row give a hard shake aiming away (if outside) to remove remaining dawn/water or use a paper towel or clean small towel, then begin next row overlapping a bit and use a paper towel to get any excess water or minor little streak the squeegee line left because it wasn't perfectly dry or the pressure isn't equal (no worries, it works). I love to do windows now because they are a fast and easy. I had a house-cleaner owner friend of a friend demonstrate this and she did a window in two or three minutes! The tools cost $100 at the time but I got double sets because I needed the small version that fit in 10-pane French doors and a few windows as well. I use that on my mirrors too. Unfortunately, I don't like the way it works on the car because it doesn't play nice with the windshield washer fluid, etc. It works well if it's always done with Dawn and not mixed with ammonia products. Always done in the shade. It's easy to screw in a long broom handle to manage high windows, single story or two-story with a ladder AND A SPOTTER! I'm confident these tools are cheaper now with the advent of everything made in China and Amazon. If they're kept in a cool, dry place to safeguard the rubber they'll last a decade. Oh...and NO streaks and NO buffing required!

    Also, remember to be in the shade when doing car or house windows. The sun will dry it too fast and cause streaks.

    I use windshield washer fluid as well. It is made to cut road oil and grime. I use it on my home windows as well. Windex leaves streaks and I don't like it either. I have also started to use Rainex widow spray on the outside of the windshield. It beads up the rain water and makes for clear driving vision.
