I myself use meguiars D120 glass cleaner and a micro-fiber glass towel with great results and no streaks. Also this stuff smells fantastic and is great for removing water spots from chrome, aluminum rims or just a quick wipe down on your rims after polishing and counter tops in your home just a good all around cleaner!
    The ink formula used by news printers has changed just in the last 10-15 years. The formula prior to that had an abrasive quality which was the component that cleaned the windows so well. The D120 glass cleaner is my fav also.

    Personally for me, I use Meguiars Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner with a Meguiars Water Magnet Cloth. It is easy to use and it spread the product evenly, flip the towel to the dryer portion for a final wipe. It produces clear and streak free result without lint...juts sharing..

    I had forgotten all about using NP to clean windows. When growing up... or getting older, washing the car was a family operation. Cleaning the windows was always done with NP. I will have to give it a go now and see how I like or dislike the job it does. Either way, thanks for the memory jog!

    Hi,
    I also use newspaper to clean window glasses, but when it has more dust or tough stains I use microfiber or sometimes a mixture of detergent or warm water then window cleaner squeegee. It provides good results.

    Hi,

    Me too used to use newspapers to clean glass, be it windows or glass panels until I found Microfiber cloths.

    I found that newspaper was too messy. MF towels do a great job for me, as long as I use Meguiar's glass cleaner.
