Detailing interior glass

The interior of my car has been somewhat neglected compared to the exterior. Itís clean of course and gets a regular hoovering out, but the interior glass hasnít been properly cleaned in about six months.

As a result itís steaming up easily and has that film. Time to tackle it.

I was thinking of the following products and approach (as I already have them)

Wipe down with auto finesse crystal and waffle cloth

Polish with auto finesse vision then buff off

Remove polish residue by wiping down with crystal and waffle cloth again

Finally (optional) treat interior windscreen with rainx anti fog.

Does anyone have any suggested alterations to the above or does this sound like the right approach?

Sounds good but I would opt for some better glass sealant like gtechniq g5

Only use glass cleaner on the inside. Spray on glass cloth, buff off with waffle.

Any reason you mention not to as in most cases ive found it stops the glass fogging and makes it a lot easier to clean?

I don't know anyone who puts glass sealant on the interior of their glass, it seems kind of a waste of product.

It's not like you're going to be showering inside your car, are you?

I know multiple people who do it, mostly with a wax or paint sealant,

no I wont obviously be showering inside my car but I do breath in there and my breath (probably yours to) has moisture in it, in colder months it can cause fogging or condensation on the windows where the outside temperature is colder than inside to water settles, using something hydrophobic helps clear the condensation sooner,

Using a sealant minimizes this fogging as mentioned it also makes it easier to clean I have 2 young kids who touch the glass I can tell you from experience it makes is easier to clean.

So for me its not a waste but a safety thing and and a time saving measure

I use G5 it lasts 3 months on the outside and 6 months on the inside so I apply it twice a year, a waste of time and product, certainly not!

However if you feel its a waste then simply don't apply a glass sealant to your interior glass

after using "rain-x" many years ago on a motorbike, id be in the "find something else" camp
and after many many years on motorbikes , crack a car window for misting up, as the "anti fog" things i have used, on motorbike visors and face mask either just do not work or stop working after a half hour or so,, Clean as possible is the best ive found so far,

G5 on the insides, never thought of that, i wonder if it will help with the vape residue , ta ill try it

I've never thought of doing this. Dots or stop condensation formimg ? Was going to buy an anti fog but will try a sealant or g5 I've got.
