Interior glass cleaning - getting little streaks

Hi
I've been using the Sonax Xtreme glass clear Nano.
Sometimes i get streaks inside the car like some residue or something oily - as it says it can be used to outer & inner glass, also did that with good nylon towels specially for the windows (the thin silk smooth ones).


What is the best way to clean the interior glass?
What product would you recommend?
Thanks.

Deep clean with a magic eraser and some glass cleaner then keep on top of it.

A good technique is just as important as the glass cleaner, are you using 2 towels.

My method is a 350-400 gsm towel for spraying glass cleaner on and working it into the glass then get a glass cloth like a fish scale one for buffing of the residue

Cloths are such an important part of doing glass. As you've alluded to, nothing with a long, dense fibre for the finishing. Which is why waffle weave and fish scale are popular. I prefer waffle weave but they are both very good.

Be careful of touching any of the dash, door card tops etc with the cloths, this will pick up oils from the plastics and any dressings or any other product residue that may be on them, and will transfer oils on to your glass. Also wear nitrile gloves or similar as oils can transfer from your hands too.
Use a short pile 80/20 blend MF cloth for applying the glass cleaner, spray into the towel, not on to the glass. Spray plenty on to the towel so it is fairly wet, and so as not to let the product dry on the glass. Once spread out in an area which isn’t too large - avoiding the product drying out, immediately buff with a clean waffle weave - or a longer piled MF.
Waffle weaves / fish scale towels don’t work so well with some glass cleaners and some glass films, so if you do the above and still get smears, try the longer pile MF for buffing and see if that helps.
If you are using a magic eraser, do not use this on any tinted glass or any other clear UV films which may be on the glass. Check for this first.
Don’t use the same cloths for inside and outside the glass.

It's way simpler than many know.
Start from scratch and decontaminate the glass, inside is easier, more elbow grease than anything else.
Outside a good clean up with BKF and then (do a search with BKF and see what has been written on it. Did it myself too many times alone as have others).
Then go with Glass cleaner.
A good light is a must, The Sun being the best of all, from inside out it will pick up all and everything. It's truly the best way.
Then as Ryan ^^^^^ added, maintain it and keep it clean regularly and it becomes an easy habit.
Or learn the hard way
