Cleaning Windows

What is the best way to clean the inside of the windows without leaving streaks? Every time I clean the inside of my WK2 windows, I get streaks.-Thanks

Re: Cleaning Windows

I would recommend using Invisible Glass (aerosol version) then you get 2 microfiber towels. One to wipe the window when you first spray and then another one to go over the window again.

That's what I do and it works. Hope it helps.

BTW- Mods please move this thread.

Re: Cleaning Windows

I have the same problem. I use Invisible Glass but I don't think it's any better than Windex. I spray it on a microfiber towel and clean it, then use the dry parts of the same towel to dry it. Then I do it gain with a fresh towel. Sometimes it takes a third try.

Re: Cleaning Windows

If you are using paper towels on your windows, make sure you use 1-ply paper towels. Most paper towels are 2-ply, and the stuff used to keep the 2 plys together can cause streaking. I have used 1-ply paper towels and they do not cause streaking.

And Invisible Glass FTW.

Re: Cleaning Windows

Windex + Cotton Terry Cloth + Circular Motion = Clean Streak Free Windows

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best.

Re: Cleaning Windows

For you guys who love Invisible Glass, try the Sprayway...I have several unopened cans of IG sitting in my garage that no longer get used. I like how the Sprayway foams up a lot more as it gets sprayed onto the windows.
