How do I clean the windshield of my car?

Cleaning Car Windshields

The best solution for cleaning windshields is 1/2 cup baking soda mixed with a quart of warm water. This will clean insects off the windshield and clean the wipers. Apply with a piece of mesh onion bag wrapped around a sponge.

Cutting a potatoe in half and then wiping it over the windscreen will help repel the rain if your wipers are broken or not doing a good job

This sounds like a great idea, window cleaner seems to eat the skin right off of my hands. Thank you will try this right away on all of my windows.

never tried this tip..but will. I have also found mixing white vinegar with warm water takes off any oily residue...can be used inside the vehicle as well...leaves a clean scent..not vinegar.
