Done with glass cleaner

For years I've been using foaming glass cleaner which actually worked excellent, streak free perfection.

I have meguiars waterless wash which I noticed that the bottle mentions to use on glass too, I previously only used it to spot clean paint in between washes.

First I just wash the glass along with the rest of the car using my wash mitt. Dry the glass completely.

This stuff is awesome on glass and being a light wax it also has a water repelling effect, I use a micro fiber towel to apply and a separate dry one just to buff out. No streaks!

Do you boil the microfibers before you use them on the glass? If you don't, you will get fibers all over the glass surface which looks terrible in the sun.

No, didn't have any problems with that, might depend on what brand?

What about on the inside of the windshield does it get that hazy film off?

I use a 50-50 water/rubbing alcohol mix (you can buy this pre-mixed at just about any drugstore or Walmart) and a Mr Clean Magic Eraser for the inside glass. Get the eraser wet and lightly wring it out. Spray the mix on the eraser and rub it into the glass like you're applying a polish or wax. Take the first cloth to mop up the majority of the IPA/water mix, then use a second cloth to buff the glass. It comes out perfect for me, and I'm a smoker.
