We have a number of wood/glass ( french doors) in our home. We have having a problem making the glass look clean. we have tried many things, window cleaner with paper towel, newspaper, soft cloth. We have ttried auto glass cleaner and soap and water. The glass llok fine for a second but a couple of minutes later if you look at angle the glass is full of streaks and looks cloudy.

How do we fix this ?

Thanks

what brand of door do you have? Some manufacturers have what is called a self-cleaning glass but you have to use a vinegar water mix to activate it otherwise you will see streaks. Also it could be manufacturer issue. We had a issue with a manufacturer that during the glass cleaning phase they used dirty rags that had a substance on them and they told us to get a plastic scraper and carefully scrape the window to see if any material came off of it.

something to try is the vinegar water solution

THANKS,
