Default how to clean windshield with newspaper? dumb question!

ok, it sounds like a wee-todd question, but i hear newspaper does a great job of cleaning the windshield, but how to do it?

do you:
1) apply glass cleaner and wipe clean with newspaper, or
2) apply glass cleaner, wipe clean with paper towels, and rub dry glass with newspaper

won't this leave ink on the glass???

Found this on an auto detailing website:

"Many professional detailers use plain water for wiping and cleaning the windows and dry the glass with newspaper.* Unlike paper towels and most cotton towels, newspaper does not leave behind lint and the ink acts as a glass polish.* The only draw back to this method is the newsprint ink on your hands when you’re done.*"

I actually did clean up with newspaper long time ago, and it works pretty good.

Spit works great for anti-fog, just like the ocean divers put in their mask.

Ive been using this method forever....It works great you just have to know when to throw the newspaper away and use different one. If you use it too long it will start to get a bit messy. The ink.........dont worrry about it. The rainx...........never tried it with rain x. Dont Know???????

i generally use the rainx windshield wiper fluid. it's upsetting when the fluid gets on the paint which i spend 5 hours every weekend to wash/claybar/polish/wax, but i get over it with the ease of application.
