You're having a hard time reaching it or getting it clean?

If it's reaching, you can always try a plastic spatula wrapped in a microfiber towel.

I've recently tried Newspaper and was pleased with the results - no lint and it seems
to get the tree sap/resin specs better

Tools like this work well for difficult to reach inside areas:

Well reaching, like I said you can try that. Cleaning, like the post above newspaper works, black and white only.

I've become a fan of glass microfiber towels, they're really fine and seem to work awesome for me, but you just got to make sure they're intended for glass.

I use the back of my hand to hold the towel while cleaning the inside windshield. I use a paint stirring stick to clean the inside corners of the rear glass

But the Stoner Invisible Glass Reach & Clean Tool works very well also.

The only thing that has worked for me...and I tried a lot of the suggestions on here is the Adams window microfiber and I use a GUNK brand of foam windshield cleaner. Newspaper, other microfiber towels etc always left streaks. Got a couple of the Adams ones and the windows are now streak free!
