    Default Cleaning windows inside and out

    Hello, the weather looks good to clay my car for the first time today.

    Gonna wash, clay, swirl x, polish then seal.

    But the question is, what do I use for cleaning my windows? Can you clay them?

    I clean the windows with Meguires glass cleaner. I would not recomend doing the inside with "say windowlene" as it powders when dry (likely to make a mess) it would be ok on the outside.
    I have been known to clay the windows too.

    Soap and water, then dry them off, newspaper also works.

    I have always found Autoglym's Car Glass Polish works very well for me.

    I use two mircofirbe cloths one for applying and then one for buffing.

    I tend to grind the polish in to the first window then move onto the next. When done covering the second I move back to the first to buff and so on.

    You get a great shine after oh and a very achey arm too but worth it.
