What is the best glass cleaner for your BMW?

So the other day I had my home windows tinted and the installer uses the Spray Away Glass Cleaner, he said it's the best.

I remember the best tint guy in town also uses this glass cleaner when cleaning car windows after the job has been completed.

Any of you guys have any thoughts on it? It's also dirt cheap right now on Amazon.

Yup. That is what I use. No ammonia so it is safe for tint. Bonus, it is cheap.

It must not streak much if at all if both the home and auto tinters wouldn't use anything else!

Thanks for the confirmation.

Sprayway releases way to much product I think. Chemical Guys streak free window cleaner is the best product I've used on my windows.

Thankfully a Chemical Guys detail garage just opened up sown the street from me! Little expensive but it's a premium product.

I really like Liquid Performance glass cleaner. Found it in the pro shop at VIR, and it works really well, and smells pretty good.

I just use invisible glass. It's cheap, but it works. It's also useable on Windows with tints.

This is at $2.18 now. Not $1.98 but still a really good deal.

I bought a can based on this thread and boy am I glad I did! It works great! No streaks, foams on well and spreads evenly and flashes off streak free. Great great stuff!

We use this stuff in our shop now.

Let's hope the price stays this low.

Never really thought about that, but just know it's way better in terms of smell than Windex!

Spray A Way FTW. Great stuff, can be bought just about anywhere and is tint safe. All the tint shops around me use it too.
