Thumbs up Cleaning Windows?

Does anyone know of good products to use for cleaning your windows and windsheilds? i know it sounds like weird asking but i've heard a different variety of stories like using diluted vineger and newspaper.

Adam's Perfect Glass Cleaning Collection

Doesn't get better than that. Their Glass Towels are out of this world, no streaks at all and the Glass Cleaner smells awesome.

Vinegar is good for getting acid rain off your windows if it hasnt baked on there forever.

There's at least 20 other threads on this... but IMO, of the products I've used, Adam's Glass Cleaner and Stoner's Invisible Glass are tied atop the list.

Invisible glass here also. If you have tinted windows, make sure whatever you use will not harm them...

I have invisible glass but I've found that if I use that with a towel such as a microfiber it leaves a residue on the window. (hard to see but its there and causes extra glare)

Instead I use paper towels and that seems to work fine.

I've tried almost every product in this thread and none has ever worked so well for me as - get this - GM Glass Cleaner. It's like $3-5 per bottle but they last forever and I even now use it to clean all my house windows because it does a great, fast, no nonsense job with no streaks.

Don't breathe it in, though, it's pretty nasty stuff. But nothing has ever worked better for me.

I use a waffle microfiber towel. Works better than the regular ones.
Oh yeah and Invisible Glass.

When I bought the car, used, there was some haze on the windshield that I could'nt get rid no matter the product.

So I went to old grand'ma way.

I cutted an onion in 2 pieces and I used the onion to clean the glass. When it got dirty, I cutted a slice and went on.

All the haze went away and now I use Bon Ami foam from Wal-Mart. Does a great job and not expensive.

That's my trick.
