Windows Are'nt Us

I use Windex and paper towels on my windows, rear view mirror, side mirrors and I still get streaks. It's dirving me nuts.......... There seams to be something around the edge of the side and rear view mirrors causing smearing.

I also notice that on both side windows theres what looks to be water spots all across the windows but they wont come out with Windex.

Any ideas??

Lifehacker had an article once about cleaning streaky windows with newspaper and vinegar diluted with water.

Yea, I live in Arizona and it's been averaging about 110 degrees so far. I pull it out the garage and wash then right back into the garage after washing.

I usually just use a couple of cloth towels, one damp and one dry. For the inside they look pretty good. I might go over them a couple of times and usually pretty clean after.
