Nothing Seems To Clean The Inside Of My Car Windshield?!
A clean and clear car windshield is a matter of life and death...

Cant see through it properly while driving means crashed cars and smashed people...

Windex glass cleaner doesnt friggin work...

That useless sh#t must contain something that creates streaks on glass so we keep buying more...

The old timers say to use wet newspaper...

So i tried it...Sorry...Doesnt f###en work...

Warm water leaves streaks...

Cold water leaves streaks...

What the f##k!...What else is there?...Nothing works?!

Funny you should ask that because i thought of making this thread while driving home earlier tonight and I also thought that the first thing someone would ask me is if I smoke in my car or not...

Whatta ya know...Yes I do...But...My mother doesnt smoke and no one else drives or sits in her car who smokes and yet shes constantly complaining about the inside of her cars windshield and how it never seems to be clear no matter how her or I try cleaning it...

During the spring and summer and early fall 99% of my cigarette smoke flys out my windows without making contact with the windshields interior glass...

I'm a professional window cleaner and I could clean your windows with just straight water and a microfiber cloth.

BUT

If you smoke in your car or if they are just really dirty, take a squirt bottle and put in a 1 second pour of alcohol, a one second pour of ammonia and fill full with water (Bottled/purified water preferred) and add 3 to 4 good drops of Dawn dish washing liquid. Spray on generously, let sit a few seconds, wipe clean with a microfiber cloth.

repeat as needed.

Whatever you do, NEVER use bleach with Ammonia.... Some people get frustrated and start making up their own concoctions. But this makes Chlorine gas and it will kill you.

If any steaks remain, it's because there is still soap on the glass. Wipe it off first with bottled water and a CLEAN microfiber cloth. Then, before it dries, take another clean microfiber and wipe dry.

For stuck on stuff, try using fine steel wool when glass is wet. It won't scratch glass, but it WILL scratch tinting. So don't use it if your windows are tinted with vinyl.

RE: Nothing Seems To Clean The Inside Of My Car Windshield?!
If all else fails and you still have streaks, wait for the glass to be completely dry and use DRY fine steel wool and rub on areas with streaks and they will magically disappear before your very eyes. But like I said.... Don't use it if you are cleaning the side of the glass that has vinyl tinting.

Good advice...just the thought of trying to mix those two all too easily available products together sounds deathly dangerous...like wasnt that one of the poison gases used during WW-1?

And NEVER use rusted steel wool. It WILL scratch your glass.

Well, I don't smoke and the inside of my windshield is a weird hazy streaky deal. I've tried window cleaner, vinegar and water, etc. What the hell is it? gaah.gif

Then why is it so difficult for some people? LOL

Like I said. If you still have steaks, just rub them off with dry fine steel wool. 0000 size steel wool is best.

Regular and very deadly windshield wiper fluid (notice the skull and crossbones upon the containers) cleans the outside of my cars windshield just fine and so maybe I should use that on a cloth to clean the inside glass? or maybe its the cloth,or rags,or paper towels that are the real problems? but then i wonder if applying my cars ventilation heat onto the inside windshields glass when its cold outside would cause some kind of chemical reaction with any leftover windshield wiper fluid? I wouldnt want to accidently gas myself while driving down the street!

I'm of the mind that the streaks are coming in via the ventilation, that being, exhaust fumes. What are exhaust fumes, I ask? I then surmise that it is a greasy oily mess. What cuts, cleans oil?

You have to do the vinyl on the interior roof too, if you smoke, I was surprised how grubby mine was. Maybe once a year or so.

Actually.....

If your heater core is broken, it's possible to spray radiator vapor on to the inside of your windshield. Radiator coolant will make it a bitch to clean off.

Any grease cutter. Dawn dishwashing liquid is a mild grease cutter. But you can use other things too. Just go to hardware store and go to cleaning supplies and look for any grease cutting chemical. Don't use easy off. LOL

I suppose maybe thats what it is?

Anythings worth a try...

Just this past weekend I cleaned the inside of my cars windshield once with windex and then once with warm water and it seemed clean...

But then I got in it and started driving and the suns light and or the oncoming car headlights hit my windshield at a certain angle and there they are again!

Streaks and other streaks and more streaks suddenly reappear!...again!

And i'm like where the hell did you just come from?...again!

Maybe the car glass manufacturers have a behind the scenes mega money deal with the glass cleaner companies?!

Meaning maybe the glass and the glass cleaners contain the problem?!

Or maybe its our eyes that have streaks?! (*-*)

Then again, what the hell are they spraying on our roads lately? damned.gif That shït has to come up through the ventilation too. I just mention this because I never had a problem in the recent past, just relatively lately.

I'm keeping with the same perspective, what the hell is coming up via my ventilation onto the glass?

You could have a leak in your heater core.

You could also be spraying oil from a lose valve cover or bad valve cover gasket. Look under your hood on the underside of your hood and look to see if there is any oil splattered on it. It could be vaporizing and entering your vent system.

The older (meaning more miles) the car is the more dirtier its windshield will get?

There's a product called INVISIBLE GLASS. Spray or aerosol. Walmart, grocery stores, auto stores.

It isn't made with soap. Does not streak. Might have to use it twice to get the old crusty stuff.
Smokers window, no problem, finger prints, over-spray from Son of a Gun / Armorall, not an issue. You can be generous the first time then just a spritz the next time.

Hasn't failed me yet. We repainted a front door that faces the sun. After a few weeks, there was a bunch of garbage on the screen door window. Nothing would touch it without smearing. Used the Invisible glass. Took 3 or 4 times but it worked.
