Can anyone recommend a product (and maybe method) for the best cleaning of interior windows as I'm fairly certain my wifes cars condensation problem is due to dirty windows!

I have used numerous window cleanets in the past but was given Nanolex Glass Cleaner as a Christmas present and used it today. Impressed with t although it smells like Windowlene. i use either a cheap kitchenr roll to apply and a microfibre to polish off although today I used compressed cotton wool pads to apply and the microfibre to polish off. Apparently the Nanolex has some anti fog prperties as part of its make up so this could help with your issue perhaps.

My preferred stuff is Autoglym Glass Cleaner. Spray, dry with clean kitchen roll and polish with a microfibre cloth.
Really easy and will help with condensation.
Look at the colour of the kitchen roll and that will show you how dirty the glass was !

On a completely different tack. My daughters car was suffering badly from condensation.
I gave her a 500g pack of silica gel to leave on the back seat and the condensation has gone.

three reasons (at least) for the misty windows that I know:

1. alcohol consumption
2. humidity in the car
3. dirty/contaminated windows

from my experience curing the 3rd one won't help against first two ;)

I could get slaughtered here but ah well, it works for me.

Interior glass has always been a pain, cleans up ok only to go smeary in time, tried all sorts of cleaners and clothes but always the same.
I have some bottles of Williams waterless wash for the outside that I only ever use if its my only option, I used it on the rear screen of the Spider once and was expecting it to smear up in time but it didnt, some time later I tried it on the door glass and same thing, smear free so thought lets give it a go on the windscreen and rear screen and ever since the glass has stayed absolutely clear.

It shouldnt work, putting a canuba based wash/wax on glass doesnt sound good but it works or at least has done for several months (6 months +) now.

Perhaps I should add that I never wipe the inside if it is steamed up or covered in condensation and always clear it through the fan, this probably helps stop the smearing.

I use a product called Stoner Invisible Glass and lots of blue paper towel, the fairly expensive thick stuff.

I've never had any success with microfiber towels or any other type of cloth. I think the key with interior glass is to use a decent cleaner with no ammonia, and something absorbent that you change often.

I used a vax steam cleaner on some very dirty glass a few years ago which loosened it up nicely.
