Bar none, this is the absolute best product for the inside WS, and at $19.95 a bargain. Comes with removable pads.

AutoSport Catalog - Glassmaster Pro System 800-953-0814

Available at several sources, including a store near you...even Walgreens.

I use a two step process
1) glass cleaner (what ever is your favorite) on the inside with paper towels. Don't worry about streaks, use the cleaner and towels to get rid of major film buildup
2) spray again with glass cleaner and use a small squegee going horizontally across the windshield. wipe it off after each pass going from top of the window to the bottom. Done properly you will have no streaks.

If the window has minmal haze, you can start at step two.
repeat for the outside as well.

Stoners Invisible glass cleaner works great, is affordable, and is offered at autozone and Strauss. Leaves no streaks, very easy to apply and remove. I love it.

This might sound a bit funny, but invisible glass used with newspaper works very well.

Not funny to me and newspaper is a pretty old method. The only downside is your hands will get pretty black due to the ink.

I use newspaper too, but here is the trick...I go to the local newspaper printing office. When they run the paper machines, and they get close to the end of the print roll, they change them out for a new big roll. The used rolls they take off a lot of times contain a bit more paper. They usually throw these out and I get a roll remnant to put in my garage. This way I have newspaper without all of the ink to worry about!!
