Window cleaners

Just wanted to know what everyone uses to clean their windows. Has anyone tried any window cleaners in a spray can??

Same here. Except I use Windex on all the outer windows, and Rain-X every now and then.

I hear great things about this stoner product. Can't seem to find it anywhere here. Guess I'm stuck with Armor All glass cleaner

Stoner Invisible Glass, picked it up at Autozone. Works wonders, and it says it's safe on tint (although I haven't tested this out yet). I don't use any cleaner with ammonia since the guy at the tint shop said to avoid them on tinted areas.

I've been wanting to try that Stoner Invisble Glass. But I've never really figured out whats so special about cleaning glass with a wadded up newspaper.

I use just about any clear colored automotive window cleaner and newspaper... gets the film off and works pretty decent without any "fancy" products [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

I tried those armor all glass wipes and they seemed to do a pretty good job getting all my windows clean.

I've read that the alkaline in the newspaper ink actually nuetralizes oil based smears giving it a crystal clean shine in conjunction w/ window cleaner of course.

My neighbor told me it was ammonia in the newspaper ink, but regardless it's the ink and not the paper itself which is good for the glass.

I saw him outside one morning drying his car off with newspapers and thought he was too poor for towels
