When it comes to windows, a cleaner is a cleaner really.

I prefer to do a deep cleanse with say Werkstat Prime Strong, inside and out, and not only does this do a supreme job of cleaning the glass it lays a layer of sealant on them so that I only really have to use a microfibre on them. While driving in the rain, the rain just beads off the windows superbly. On the outside windows, I repeat this only about 4 times a year. Inside, only twice a year.

nope, as said above, window cleaner is window cleaner, i find the trick is to use two microfibres, one to remove dirt & smear the cleaner over the glass and the other to buff it off as it evaporates

Does it matter that you use prime on the insides? I use Werkstatt.

Is this not hazardous? If not I am going to try it on the inside this week.

It depends on the glass and the windows, we use high reach cleaners but also use absailing cleaners to do high jobs!

I don't apply it to the inside of the windscreen. For the very reason you've mentioned:icon_thumright:

All others inside are fine.

I vary what I use depending on the task in hand. On relatively clean interior glass, I tend to use a nice liquid cleaner like Eimann Fabrik Clear Vision II and the two towel method advocated above - does the job very nicely in no time at all. On grubbier interior glass (including the windscreen) Werkstat Prime Strong does a much better job, but takes twice as long to apply and remove; hence why I reserve it for grubby jobs only. On exterior glass, we've recently been developing a new product line in conjunction with Werkstat, and based on the Carlack Glass Sealing Kit mentioned above. Werkstat have tweaked the formula a little to improve the performance further, and the products should be available in the UK within the next few months, along with a new Werkstat liquid glass cleaner. The performance of the glass sealing kit is going to far exceed Prime Strong on exterior glass in terms of water beading and durability. :icon_thumright:
