Default Best way to clean inside of your windows.. mainly windshield

I want to know the best way to get that film like stuff off of the insdie of your windshield. I used windex, but it just seems to streak up and make a mess. There has got to be a better way..

I have this cloth thingie (sorry but I forgot what it's called) that cleans glass. Really useful stuff. I think I got it at K-Mart.

windex= cheap
newspaper=free
newspaper leaves no residue, no streaks.

Not for us with tint, it'll corode the film. Need something with no ammonia in it, I'm sure newspaper will still work though. What do those with their windows tinted use?

when i had tint on my VW, the shop insisted i use 'Windex,' over any other. you maybe right, but that's what i always used and the car died long before the tint...

I just cleaned my windows this weekend w/ some kind of RainX glass cleaner. It's safe for tinted windows and it worked pretty well.

I used some sort of glass cleaner one time, I can't remember if it was Armor-All or not, but it was HORRIBLE.
