    Boring question

    for about 2 weeks now i have had a fog develop on the inside of my windscreen, and it seems to be getting thicker. Now its not the king of fog you get on a cold morning that balsts away with a bit of hot air, this looks like my wondow has just got dirty

    not sure how this has happened.

    Anyway, i have tried cleaning the windows with some windscreen product form Halfords ( ihate the shop but only one in blackburn i know of) http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_123038

    i tried this on a side window to just check and its possible made things even worse


    Any suggestions on what i should use to get it clean without leaving fingerprints and smeer marks all over my windscreen

    Try a normal window cleaning product from Tesco.

    I need to get around to doing mine also. It's terrible when driving towards the sun when it's low in the sky!

    Are you sure it's on the outside? Surely a quick wash-wipe would clear it off.

    For interior glass, I use an E-cloth that the wife bought years ago.
    No need for any other products.
    Works brilliantly.
