Cool, thanks everyone. I knew not to use windex or similar products on the tint. But I got some of the invisible glass just didnt know to use it on the tint. But, I think I will start with the water and rag.

Eagle One 20/20. This stuff is awesome and even mentions that it's safe for tint on the label.

So, I finally got around to cleaning my windows. And, the invisible glass is an amazing product. Thanks for the recommendation Tom and STL.

Hmm "stoners" invisible glass? Do y'all roll the windows down to use this? sure makes em clear dont it? Last "stoner" I knew kinda liked "Purple Haze" Use clean water, not used "bong" water, (cheap bastard) and a lint free cloth. If your tint turns green, go to Willie Nelsons website and ask him how he gets it off the bus windows.
