Great - Don't use Windex or BKF. What am I going to do with this gallon of Windex from Costco now? :ROFLMAO:

I think a lot of people looked at Windex and BKF as easy to obtain products they were familiar with. Gallon should last you a month with a CT or the rest of your life if not using on CT!

So my tint / wrap people have told me to NEVER use a glass cleaner that contains ammonia, for my ceramic coated windshields. Perfect Glass was their recommendation.
For years I have been using windshield washing fluid, diluted to clean my outside glass, also to remove hard alkaline water spots. Cuts grease, oil and no film. I plan to try that on the fingerprint issue, I'll keep everyone posted. Thanks to Cybergirl on the ONR product heads up,

Windex makes an ammonia-free glass cleaner - wouldn't this be ok to use instead of the regular Windex?

I've been using Optimum's ONR to clean my CT. It comes as a concentrate (1oz per 2 gallons of water). One $19 bottle with make 64 gallons of cleaner. It removes finger prints on the stainless steel completely. It seems to resist new finger prints, as well. I use it to clean the whole truck inside and out using microfiber cloths.

ONR is legit. Yes windex makes ammonia free but kinda hard to get. ONR works REALLY well at fingerprints.
