    Regardless of if I use newspaper or microfiber cloths and/or that Sprayway window cleaning spray stuff, I still can't seem to get either the microfiber lint or hand-sized horizontal smudges (from wiping) off the inside of the windshield. Is there some magic technique to cleaning the inside of the windshield? I usually do not have this much difficulty with cleaning it. Help?

    I use a squeegee, but even that can leave streaks in the edges.

    I use a white window scrub with invisible spray. Clean the exterior and then the interior of window.. And IMG_4414.JPG IMG_4415.JPG just use any regular paper towels to clean. Result look great to me.

    So I went with ProElite microfiber clear view glass towels (2pk for $3.15 after taxes), just the right size, I did some dry wiping with these towels after sunset and it got 98% of the previous towels' lint out of the way. So, as long as the windshields don't fog up, the view is finally sharp again.
    I suppose that I could put the inside-window version of the Rain-X on, but I haven't had much luck with that in the past and it's tiresome to keep wiping.

    Not sure if it's available in the States; Kleen Flo is a Canadian company.
