How can I best clean the inside of a car windshield?

What is the best way to clean the inside of the car windshield? I noticed smears on the inside of the windshield, but I can’t seem to clean them without leaving streaks behind.

Streaks on the windshield can impair your ability to see the road and others on the road, so it’s important to keep your windshield clean.
To clean your windshield, you will need to gather:
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Store-bought glass cleaner or a homemade mix (water, a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid, and a few drops of vinegar)
  • Rubbing alcohol
Once you have your materials, you will need to:
  • Remove any dirt or residue by wiping the windshield down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth.
  • Using a new microfiber cloth, pour a little rubbing alcohol onto the cloth and wipe the glass to remove any grease.
  • Flip over the same cloth and spray your glass cleaner onto it. Remember to not spray on the windshield.
  • Wipe the glass in circular motions with the cloth.
  • Swap out towels as soon as they get dirty.
  • To dry off the windows and get a streak-free shine, use up-and-down wiping motions to finish off the glass.
And just like that, your windshield will look brand new!
