Cleaning windshield glass

Did a quick search and surprised not to find any answers... what do you use to clean your windshield, inside and out? There are so many opinions but since I now have a new Acadia Denali I thought I'd find out what fellow owners use...

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Any commercial glass cleaner will do. Windex or Glass Plus is on the shelf at home. Otherwise, it's whatever they use at the car wash.

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Both inside & outside, I use stoners glass cleaner with a piece of newspaper. Works perfectly, every time. Use standard news print, not the paper with the glossy finish. You can even use the pages from a book of yellow pages, too. God knows most of those books aren't needed anymore!

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

On the inside I just use Windex and paper towel

On the outside I just use the wiper spray. The edges only get done monthly with a car wash.

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Local automatic car wash does the exterior. When I need the inside done, I drive 30 minutes to another wash with full service and they do the inside windows 3 times a year, besides full exterior wipe down of vehicle for $9.95, with veteran discount.

When I was ambitious , Stoner comes to mind.

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Forgot to add that once cleaned, I use this stuff to polish the exterior glass. Works just as good as RainX and lasts about 1-2 months longer.

Years ago, I'd actually wax the outside windows with standard car wax, but I quickly started to realize that the windshield wipers were pulling the wax coating off and it was leaving lines/residue where the wipers stopped. That Nano Diamond stuff goes on clear and doesn't leave a residue like standard car wax. Although, I'd never use that on the paint. I have many other products for that

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Never been a fan of applying ANY product like that to the glass.

Re: Cleaning windshield glass

Windex (or whatever is in the current cleaning basket) on the inside and RainX on the outside. Both applied with an old cotton undershirt.
