Default Best stuff for cleaning tinted windows ?

My tint is starting to get grimy. What out there is safe to use on tint and will not leave streaks or smugges?

More importantly, does anyone know of the best product for cleaning the inside of the windshield and keeping it from getting grimy?

Warm soapy water, a sponge, and a clean lint free towel.

Yes, steer clear of windex.

They make special tinted glass cleaners that contain no ammonia, however I usually just use water and a few soft paper towels.

Well I bought some window cleaner from AutoZone that is supposed to be tint-freindly. I think the brand was Eagle 1 or something similar. Boy was my rear window dirty. It got the dirt off, but left streaks.

I used this Pro Foam stuff, can't remember the name, but I like the foam type better. It seems to clean very well, and does not streak at all.
