water on inside (to protect tint) and some glass cleaner on the outside and a microfiber cloth (1 for each side)... streak free every time

Prepsol (wax and grease remover) works a treat too!

microfibre towel made especially for glass and decent glass cleaner

 

or if you want to be really anal, autoglym make car glass polish, its awesome, no streaks or marks left behind at all. but dusty if you use too much

I used windex and newspaper. but even when i use it on the inside i still get smudges and streak marks once the car starts to fog up a lil. i also think the previous owner was a smoker cause my mate said looks like there is nicotine or whatever from ciggies that stain up the inside of the glass.

any particular product to use to help get rid of it?

Hit up the people at Mcdonalds for some of their paper towel.

 

Its not so much about what u use more so about how you take what you use off.

You need newspaper or paper towel that doesnt leave excess behind.

 

Plus their APC is great to use on windows, its what they use for their windows (when they get off their lazy arses and decide to clean them)

Windex and newspaper, windex has metho in it. The trick is not 2 spray too much windex on the window and keep changing the newspaper often. I use 1 sheet to spread the windex around and then another sheet to wipe it all off. If you dont wipe it all off properly that's how you get streaks. You have to put a bit of effort into it.

I do it everyday for work, the blue window cleaner I use autosmart but the stuff from supercheap is pretty good spray a nice coat a bit of steel wool (only if the windows have no tint or factory tint) wipe over with one microfibre cloth then get another microfibre and wipe for final touches, hands down best method I've tried all the other methods posted on here and by far this is the best :)
