  • Interior Glass Cleaning Resulting in NO STREAKING in direct sun???

    I’m in Central Florida. Have not yet found that combo of cleaner and process that results in no streaking when the glass hits direct sun. If you solved this problem, what product and what process do you use to accomplish this Amazing Feat?? Thanking you all in Advance!! 😎

    I too look forward to smart answers as to the specific liquid product used.

    Three things I do that assist:

    *I always wipe the outside of the window in a horizontal plane, the inside in a vertical stroke [or vice-versa should you choose] — so when I see a streak I know which side of the glass to work on;

    *If you have tinted your windows please insure your window cleaning liquid is tint compatible.

    * This is my favorite inside tool and after cleaning the car’s window’s once, it joins the rest of my single use MF’s and get’s washed. There are many other cheaper ones. Mine is now seven years old an bought also in Invisible Glass one then at $14.99: https://smile.amazon.com/Invisible-G...47&sr=8-3&th=1

        I too have found success with John’s approach. I hope you post back with your experience once all is in and you try.

        what I did l learn was John’s tactic of separate direction on interior vs exterior. Seems so simple but never crossed my mind. I continue to love how much I learn from this community.

          It was taught to me; not something I was smart enough to figure out myself. The great thing about it is that is also works beautifully on windows, patio doors, and similar on one’s house.

            Well a Standing O to whoever came up with that one and thanks for posting John. I’m using the IG hardware and have used there spay with limited results. I actually got my best results using DI water from my Simple Chuck. (I use a slinky hose on Chuck for washing our cars… always drain the slinky into a bucket which I keep covered in the garage for touch up on wheels etc…) I’ve also tried Adams, and a couple of other cleaners. It may be my application method or both… not sure! 😳

              I have found that Adams glass cleaner to be my favorite. We have all developed OCD in cleaning window glass.

                That tool in post 2 is priceless. Have used it ever since John had written about it in previous posts ( Thank you John). However, the Invisible Glass spray still streaks, which show when facing direct sun light. I have not found any product that is 100% streak free for sun here on Hutchinson Island, Fl.

                  I find that I have to come back with a clean dry cloth after I wipe the sprayed window down, seems to work.

                    I've found "Invisible Glass" is the closest to a streak-free product. My tinter recommended this product specifically because of that and because it is tint friendly. It's what they use exclusively in their high-end shop. I'd always been using it anyway for decades now.

                    The triangular pads with a long handle are great too for reaching bottom corners and hard to reach areas of the C8 windshield.

                      Since having my windows tinted, including the front windscreen, I've used Sprayway 707 Glass Cleaner. It too was recommended by my window tinter. It's ammonia free which makes it "tint" friendly and advertises itself as being "Streak Free"! I won't guarantee "streak free" as I think that has as much to do with the glass temperature at the time of application, the applicator and finishing cloths, and the applicator him or herself as it does with the product used.

                          Actually used Adams again yesterday… backed it up with a rigorous hand buff with one of their buffing towels and got the best results yet!

                            Sprayway has worked the best for me.

                              I also use invisible glass on the windows, except the inside windshield! I have a cleaning wand much like the one John shows in his post, but, I just spray a very light mist of clean water on the pad and wipe the inside of the windshield with that. Go in both directions to make sure I cover the whole inside. Invisible glass works great on the outside but just plain water mist on the wand seems to do a better job inside for me. I clean it fairly often so there not much of build up of the film that tends to build on the insdie of the glass over time.
