Windscreen / rear window (as I've a coupe) as and when needed as it's a struggle to get into them - side windows much more frequent

The oils from the vinyl trim tend to pollute the glass more in the hotter months, I guess because they gas off more at higher temperature.

The other killer is nicotine/ tar from smoking. I smoke in my less favoured wagons but don't in the "nice" ones. There is a heck of a difference in terms of cleaning requirements.

One trick I have found is that a wet Magic Sponge acts better than clay on the interior glass - I don't know why but they are cheap and worth an experiment.

On the London-based cars, I clean the interior glass every two months or so, largely because of the pollution. The cars I keep in Italy (which are more the collector ones) twice a year if they are lucky, more if the summers are especially dusty (but they are kept in Carcoons most of the time).

There is a big difference depending on whether you drive with windows up or down. Windows up all the time, I get about 6 weeks before I notice it needs cleaning.

Same here, I hate doing it so I often avoid it; what is the swivel stick thing you mentioned?

Frequency of cleaning depends mostly o wher you live/drive , I live in a very rural area so no pollution to dirty windscreen interior , when I lived in Cheshire within a mile of 2 motorways and the East Lancs road, the difference was very noticeable.
