Window Cleaning Product?

It may just be me but when I wash my car I find that I will notice little streaks and dried water spots on the windows. I obtained some Armor All Glass Cleaner and a micro fiber cloth for a couple bucks. I used the product and it seemed to help but I still get the streaks. Any suggestions?

I am new to the Forum and to cars in general so please excuse the rookie question... Thanks

Dunk the microfilber towel in plain distilled water, wring it out then wipe the glass; dry with another microfiber. No streaks!

Glad it worked out. Glass cleaners are ok unless your windows are already clean, in which case they just seem to leave deposits.

Stoner's Invisible Glass is a strong solvent and drys clean on glass.

It removes most wax and sealants if you apply them to glass though.
