are you talking about the inside or out side of the windows? steel wool is the best for the out side a agree with tank. but for the inside the windex can turn the tint blue over time you need an automotive window cleaner with 2 terry cloth towells in the right sun light. first if the window is too hot your fightin a losing battle you need sun light but not hot. spray the cleaner on use a terry cloth towell to dry then go back with the other terry cloth towell and dry it agin. the reason you use two is because the first towell will get wet and smear it a little while the second should leave a streak free shine!
