Does anyone know what is the best way to clean the windows on the car (inside). Actually i want to know what to use to dry the window so i don't see any lines when the car fogs up on the inside.... i know i should get a room but it gets expensive...

The best way to clean your windows is to use newspapers, this will both clean and dry the windows. It sounds kinda weird but this is how they clean glass and display cabinets in art galleries and museums!

I agree with klaudia that newspapers is the way to go.

But I'm lazy...If my windshield is dirty while I'm driving...I stop at the gas station and squeegie the inside of the windshield. I keep wiping off the rubber blade with papertowels so the water doesn't drip everywhere. Also wipe off excess winshield washer fluid with more gas station paper towels (they feel like newspaper anyway).

Doesn't the newspaper leave black ink all over the windows?

I use windex and paper towel. I never get streaks.

Rain-X worked well the one time I used it. I wish it lasted longer though...

hey guys ,
I know someone who works for a car wash and they use newspaper which will not leave black stuff . It does a really good job . Windex is good but I was told never to use it on tints . Water & newspaper is the way to go . They do sell something at canadian tires so you can put inside so it wont fog up . Hope this will help .
:cool:

the newspaper ink actually acts as a polish for the glass. It's cheap, and it works great. You can either use just water and newspaper or a mix of water/vineager and the paper. wouldn't advise using the vineager inside...it can get pretty stank in there.
