Default Cleaning the windshield (inside part)

Man, it seems like everytime i try to clean the inside of my windshield because of what looks like oil stains, it seems like it gets dirtier. Windex just seems to "spread" out the dirt and stuff inside and not clean it. Any advice on cleaning the windshield?

#0000 steel wool and a good car glass cleaner.

Go to www.gurureports.com and buy a glass gleaning report.

Another vote for Stoner's Glass Cleaner. You can get in at Wal-Mart now where I am. You can use newspaper if you are old school or microfiber cloths if you are new and high tech like me. You can get the ghetto MF cloths at Walmart or the best of the best from www.pakshak.com. If you join www.autopia.org and PM pakshak there, you get a super discount.

All those methods work very well. I have also found that using newspaper and vinegar works exceptionally well

Hope this helps

Yeah, if you like your car to smell like pickles. Which actually might beat what Subaru considers "new car smell".

Your smearing stems from using products with amonia in them. Manufacturers are trying to do too many things with an otherwise straighforward product (i.e., cleans greasy stainless sinks or stove vents). After using pretty much all of them, I now use alcohol based Sprayway and (washed) microfiber cloths. Stoner's is a bit better than average than the group it competes with but still nowhere as effective as Sprayway (at half the money).
