Question What/how to use for inside of windows?

What should be used on the inside of the windows? (front and back windshields, and windows in the doors)

I've tried the AmourAll glass wipes, and they used to work fine, but nowadays as it gets colder, all my windows fog up on the inside (alot of moisture in the air I suppose), and especially on the windshields, not only does it fog up, but you see the streaks of how I wiped it

What is the best commercial product out there, and what is the best way to apply it? Using my hand to apply it with some kind of rag/cloth doesn't help, as it would give it uneven pressure on the glass surface, and thus I see the streaks....

What is the best 'Farmer Bob' homemade solution??? I used to use a vinegar solution (1 parts regular vinegar, to about 3-4 parts water), and used a cloth...

Others have suggested using newspaper to wipe it off... any ideas??

I use RainX on the outside of the windows, so that I know

^^^The makes of RainX have a product for the inside called FogX or something like that.
My friend always uses newspapers to clean his windows. But thats kind of ghetto.

I used this A Stoner Product

I don't think it helps you any as far as fogging of your windows. But it kept my windows streak free.

Vinegar works awesome but smells gross.

Stoner makes an excellent glass cleaner and also Spray Away is an excellent glass cleaner.

I also think you should invest in a microfiber towel to go over the window after you clean it with 2 terry towels.

What I normally do is Spray, Wipe with terry towel, re wipe with dry terry towel, and then wipe with micro fiber towel. It really gets the windows clean. I only use Vinegar for troublesome windows, especially if someone smokes in the car....

stoner makes good glass cleaner. cheap too but good quality. if you're a freak like me (and some of the other folks on this site) about your paint and interior, maybe try spraying the aersol can onto a clean cotton terry cloth and then wipe you windows... instead of appling it fresh on the window.

you get me?

use stoners invisible glass or eagle one 20/20 glass cleaner. Sprayaway is also another cheap alternative that works well since it doesn't contain ammonia and is safe for windows. As for towels, use 2 microfiber towels, one for applying, one for wiping dry.

i use Armor All Glass Cleaner... does a good job... but since i smoke in the car it leaves a nasty orange file... it's pretty gross to see the orange tar on the towel when i wipe off... but have to clean my windows fairly often...

After i got my windows tinted they don't fog up that much anymore. I dont use any solvnet to clean the inside of the window, just a soft rag.

i use armorall all class clearer for cars too. it works great on side windows. but its nasty for some reason on my front and rear windshields. it leaves shreeks and patches. imi guessing the window has a different compound layer on it? i dunno.
