Glass Cloth & cleaner recommendations?

I recently posted a question in the general section asking about a couple of different things (glass cloths being one) but the thread has disappeared so I assume I must have broken some rule somewhere, so...... I thought I better post a specific question in each relevant section apologies if you have read this previously........

I was just wondering if any of you can recommend some good glass cloths & cleaner? Spent hours washing my car last weekend and then when I drove to work the next morning the windows looked a sod, especially the windscreen.

I haven't got any decent cloths up to now for glass and have been using some Meguiar's cleaner.

Just wondering if there are any products out there that do the job well, or should I try the old news paper method??

Thanks

These cloths are brilliant -

Carpro ceriglass is great to give the glass an initial deep clean using IPA to remove.

Autoglym fast glass is an excellent non fussy maintenance cleaner, as is IPA.

cheers

I tend to just use a house glass cleaner, but i use autoglym glass polish for a thorough clean.

Cloth, i tend to use the lent glass cloth double sided, which i think works well

For interior glass I find the HG blue concentrate you can get in B&Q does a good job. Dilution ratio is something insane like 15ml for a bucket, and for really dirty glass you can use it neat. Quite like the Power Maxed glass cleaner too though.

technique NOT product

Glass cleaning is in the technique NOT the product, get a good method like using a longer pile cloth to apply it and a short ultra sued for removing/buffing.

Using that tequnique you dont even have to use a glass cleaner, optimum or a apc will work fine
