    I hate window streaks!!!

    I've used Sprayway, ArmorAll Glass Cleaner, and a few others with different types of rags (microfiber, "glass specific" microfiber, newspaper, etc...) and no matter how I clean the windows the streaks always show at night when dew gets on em.

    For the love of all things that are holy, how do I get rid of these horrid streaks!?

    Stoner's Invisible Glass and 100% cotton terry towels work well for me.

    Once dew forms nothing will be streak free.

    Rain-X is a beautiful thing. I never use my wipers! I can get the windows to look clear as long as that gal derned dew stays a good distance away.

    I wax my windows and clean with Stoners glass cleaner. Almost don't need to use windshield wipers when it rains. Just beads right off. . . it's a beautiful thing.
