Default Windex Auto & Glass Cleaner .... sucks

Hey all,

I saw this new (black & red) Windex bottle in the automotive section of CT.
Hrm... Auto & Glass cleaner... I thought sure why not.

I tried it out when my windsheild got a bit dirty... it did a great job of removing the hard caked on bugs from the day.

But when I got inside the car I realize it had left a haze(fog) over the windshield.... arg.
I got out and sprayed some more to try and clean it off, no good.
I had to wait for it to completely dry, and then use more elbow grease then I would liked to remove it with dry paper towels.

I later tried it on the inside glass and instrument panels... same result.... haze.
I give the product a

I switched back to normal Windex for my glass and everything is fine again.
Doesn't clean the bugs off as well, but that'* what the Bug & Tar remover are for.
