Question window cleaning

when ever i clean the interior of my car, it seems that the hardest spot to clean is the front and rear windshields. I cant seem to work with the angle of them

I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how i could get to the hard to reach spots or more effectively clean them

any tips and help is appreciated

-Thanks

What do you mean by "cleaning"? What kind of products are you using?

I just spray generous amounts of Invisible Glass and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. Of course, it takes a bit of stretching, especially for the rear window, but it's well worth the effort.

Invisible Glass during the early morning or late afternoon when the sun isn't directly shining on you. You'd get better results. Use a microfiber towel instead of paper towels, I found that this works better.
FYI: Its suicide to try to clean your rear window in direct sunlight, I spent 5 minutes trying to line up a Penn State decale on the rear window, and I was sweating buckets by the end of the five minutes. Then again, it was like 80 degrees and I have a black interior, but still, that massive rear window magnifies the sun's heat wickidly. Viel Gluck!

Stoners Invisible Glass
Microfiber Towel
Scotch-Brite 405-R Griddle Pad Holder (Use this with the Microfiber Towel to reach hard to reach spots in the interior parts of the front and rear windshield.)
For me here in Florida is around 8-9am or 6:30-7pm to clean the windows.

In my opinion, yes. I found that paper towels smear just a bit more than microfiber towels.

Please tell me you're kidding. At any given time, I'm willing to bet that my windows are much cleaner than a pile of newspaper...

No im not kidding. A lot of people have used newspapers and a lot of people still do. The reason they do is no lint and trust me it works good. By the way in my opinion the micrfiber towels work ok but once you use them on 1 window you better get another because once it gets moist from the window cleaner it streaks like hell.
and believe it or not some car detailers use newspaper also. try it im serious. No the ink from the newspaper does not come off.

Newspaper does work really well. I've heard its because the kind of paper its made out of is great at absorbing stains (like ink) and holding them in.

Kcarr65, do you know how to make a signiture so you dont have to post a pic of your car in every thread? lol
