What's the best detergents to use to clean windows with streak free

There is no definitive answer as it’s really down to personal choice what you use so best to try different ones and even a mix to see what you find best to use.

 

The detergent itself is just to suspend the loosened up dirt in and it's the amount of slip you get from the amount of solution you put on the glass & how good you are using a squeegee that counts. The type of rubber you use is again down to personal choice as some glide better than others is certain temps. Then detailing afterwards or lack of it if using a modded channel / liquidator also counts on the overall job.

 

I can also get streak free windows using a wfp too :D

Anything except fairy will do the job ok(it leaves a film on the glass)

Some on here have said fairy lime and lemongrass is ok though

Personal preference i use asda eco washing up liquid as it is 100% natural, totally clear like ecover but thicker so it doesn't dry quick like ecover and has an excellent slip to it

I use flash with it like people do with ecover as it gives it a big boost in cleaning power but it is as strong as fairy etc anyway so you don't need to

I tend to use ecover but like @daveyboy1 suggested the asda version might be better.

 

When you say you use flash with it what one and how much? got a link @daveyboy1

Try this stuff

It's the stuff i use

All decent washing up liquid has 5-15% anionic surfactants written on the ingredients which is the cleaning power

Except strong fairy which has 15- 30% written on it so they are all as strong as each other

Just need to find what suits you

My phone is playing up and not letting me do links

Flash multi purpose cleaner concentrate gel

Has to be the lemon one (don't know why it just has to be for me)

In a litre bottle of that asda stuff i would put about 1.5 inches in it

This is the one

Same strength as washing up liquid according to the bottle but works wonders mixed with it
