Besides, the variety of ammonia-based, auto glass cleaners, all-purpose cleaners has catalysed the confusion by several folds.  As a result, people simply pick any solution for window glass types without thinking.

Right way to clean any windshield:

Choosing the right kind of cleaning solution and microfiber cloth is not the end. Implying the right technique is equally important when it comes to cleaning any window glass types. Start of by cleaning the glass with water. Only then make use of the cleaning solution. Scrub water off the windshield in straight lines. Invest in a soft brush and use horizontal and vertical motion without scrubbing too hard. This is done only to loosen the grime.

Glass cleaning solution:

Spray the cleaning solution on the microfiber cloth and begin cleaning. Make sure you work from one side to another to get the best result. After the first clean, the residue is likely to remain. Repeat the procedure until you get it right. Once done, let the glass dry naturally.

By following the above-mentioned guides, you are certain to get a clean windshield.
