This sounds like a stupid question, but I suppose I am a bit think when it comes to this stuff.

The car got really misted up, and some of the windows got drawn on (as they do) and hand marks and things.

I wiped the front window with a shirt to get rid of the mist and that seems to have made a big mess of it.

What's the best way to sort them out? this is just on the inside.

Thanks :sexface:

Oh no, you will need to get it fully valeted to sort that out just some spray and a dry cloth, polish it until there are no streaks.

Polish or windolene. You know. Something that you'd use to clean glass...

Just use a glass cleaner, Rain X is what I use. Halfrauds (that's Halfords so there is no confusion!) sell loads of different ones...

I don't have any glass cleaner and my cars blocked in atm so can't go out and get some.
Would a damp tea towel do the trick?

Don't use household window cleaners, they leave a film and it'll make headlights glare through it.

Use a proper car window cleaner, it much improves the quality of your view at night and will usualy stop it steaming up so easily.
Autoglym glass polish is what I use, it's great.

I never have issues using household glass cleaners.

Just never use it on windows which have been blacked out, will mess it up.

Sounds weird but using a nice fresh sharp razor blade does the trick, leaves it proper nice.

I've heard of people using newspaper.

I just use Windolene and kitchen paper myself.

This, although I wouldn't let any get onto the paintwork (might not be an issue but I know other household cleaners like washing up liquid are).
