Spend your money on a decent microfiber and polishing cloth

Tried a home made IPA mixture? Should work great on glass! Low cost too.

Cleaning car glass doesn't have to be expensive. These top notch products are a complete waste of money in my opinion. Home made IPA or £1 glass cleaner, along with 2 cheap MF cloths and the exact proper technique will yield a perfect result.

If the glass is heavily contaminated then you might need to spend a bit on a clay bar. Other than that, save your money and learn a good glass cleaning technique.

I'm sure many will disagree with my overall view and will use a range of specialised products which they are happy with, which is great if that works for them. I personally save my money to spend it on high end products which focus on car paint care.

My 50/50 ipa panel wipe mix sometimes gets used on glass. Works perfectly fine.

I just wouldn't recommend cheap house glass cleaners if the car has tinted windows, at least not for internal cleanup.

Another one for anglewax vision and windows came up well when I used it. Also got myself some decent cloths for doing windows.

As a fastidious cleaner of cars and vehicles for nearly 30 years. And a 'detailer' (Hobby only) for 5+ years: I've tried many glass cleaners and this is as good as it gets. I've not tried better - and i fail to see (sic) how you could want / expect more ?

Cheap as chips at B+Q DIY stores (£3.92):

Or for the sake of £! extra - i bought off ebay and got delivered to my door:

Amazing stuff !

Good question. I presume so - i've got tinted on mine its just been used on.

To be fair - i've never had an issue with any cleaner i've used on tinted windows (Factory tinted in the glass - not a film applied). Or heard of any i don't think ?
