Default streak free window cleaners/methods

so im sick of the windows fogging up and showing every friggin fiber from the towels. i clean them usually with windex or rainex window cleaner with a dry towel. what am i doing wrong? they fog up in weird places, weird shapes. also my front/rear on the outside dont clean very well


methods? what to use? equipment?


seems like a really dumb question but whatever

I heard you can wax your windows. Never tried it.

I use a squeegee and Invisible Glass, as for fogging try the rain-x fog stuff... I've never used yet, it but I've heard good things.

I have used the Invisible Glass before, and I want to say no to the Invisible Glass on tint. The kind I used was in a spray can, but I think it comes in a spray bottle now also. It would definitely say on the instructions whether it is safe to use on tint. I don't think newspapers would cause harm, but please do not quote me. I'm sure that you could Google 'Invisible Glass' for more info.

Edit: I use whatever is the cheapest or I can get my hands on, and typically, I wipe with a clean dry rag. This doesn't present problems.

I use Windex and newspaper to clean them and the newspaper again to dry. No streaks and clean windows every time.
