Residue on inside windows

Man, I got this residue on my back windows that maybe armorall? It's kind of a pain in the butt.... how do you guys useually get down in the crack right where the back dash and window meet?

I want my windows to sparkle, but this is really annoying.

My GF got this sponge on a stick thing from Japan that I have yet to use....I think it's like a rain protectant..so it prob. wouldn't work too well on the inside....

Any suggestions?

some people use a piece of cardboard with a towel wrapped around the edge to get down into that crack. I know what you mean, you can't get down there with your hands. I still haven't done that with my car and the lower inside part of my window is pretty dirty. Maybe I will do that toiday!

Yes, the paper towel wrapped around the cardboard trick works well...use Armor All Glass cleaner or any auto glass cleaner...they fare better and do a better job than the household crap...

Yeah, that works pretty well.. when I don't feel like finding a piece of cardboard (or I can't find something like that) I'll just take the washcloth and slide it inbetween the breaklight and the glass then wedge as much as I can down there, then move it back and forth with both hands, while it is still in between the glass and the breaklight.. I don't know if that makes any sense, but that works as well if you can't find something like cardboard to do it the other way.

I love Stoner products. The Invisible glass works great. So does the More Shine Less Time for Tires.
