Hi

I use car polish or wax on rear and side windows but front and internal windows I use water and newspaper

Windows are always clear, do not fog up as much and demist extremely quickly. Wipers are so clear

Many thanks

John

Autoglym Fast Glass is good and is recommended for keeping plastic headlight lenses clear. However on glass windows I find that Autoglym Glass Polish is superior, particularly on the windscreen. 

I am always open to trying something new and I appreciate that everyone has their own favourite products, that's why discussions like this are interesting and can be helpful.

+1 for Autoglym Glass Polish - excellent for inside as well as out and doesn't appear to leave a greasy or waxy layer on the windscreen.

I've tried lots of these expensive 'specialist' products and find that Mr Muscle window cleaner works very well using kitchen paper roll as does Tesco own brand window cleaner. Both contain vinegar which is, among other things, an excellent window cleaner. These products are a lot cheaper as well.

Vinegar contains alcohol and is a bit acidic (can be used as a descaler) so will cut through grease and any limescale on the windows from tap water.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Glass cleaners special for cars are always way to overpriced. I once bought Autoglym Fast Glass, did the job perfect for 9,50/500ml. Now i use Frosch bio spiritus glass cleaner and i also get perfect clean, streakfree windows for 1,75/500ml. When the windows are not very dirty, just 1/3 white vinegar in 2/3 water does the job as well. ;)

Before the Turtle thing (earlier post) the windows are twice a year cleaned with Poorboys professional polish, which is a cleaner polish (without abrasives) for paint, metal, plastic and glass.
