    Right this might sound daft but how do you guys get streak free interior glass ie inside windscreen?
    What products etc do you use etc

    I clean my screen and after a couple of weeks the wipe marks show up and it drives me mad!!!

    It will need to be products probably available from halfrauds or similar I'm not in the trade!!

    Cheers!!

    AG Fast glass, followed by AG Glass Polish...

    May be worth cleaning with IPA wipes first if there is greasy oily residue on the windows which it sounds like you may well have.

    And make sure you do the final wipedown with a proper glass cloth.

    Mine doesn't show any marks in any light or mist up ever...

    Yes it's brilliant for leaving no smears and annoying fibre/hairy bits,

    A word of warning though, the ink comes off if used on house windows that have a white trim, no need to ask me how I know,

    Nothing a baby wipe couldn't sort though,

    I've also heard vinegar and newspapers to clean glass...

    but for myself I use AG glass polish, around £6 a bottle and will last you ages. Theres this products thats made by the company that makes rainX rain reppelant thats called anit mist or something. Seen it in halfords the other day but at 6.99 for something thats only ever going to be used on the front screen i'd leave it buying it till the sales start

    At least you find a lot of uses for various objects around the house!

    I bet last christmas you cooked the turkey on your engine after a day out or something

    That does sound interesting though... I may have to try that on the mothers car now...

    Another vote for white vinegar. And you can also use it to annoy, kill and wipe away any green mouldy growths on the black rubber trims around your windows.
