Just wondering if anyone can suggest a tool that I can use to clean the Windshield Interior on my Edge....
I would need the arms of an Ape to be able to reach the bottom of the windshield...Quite a few available on line but most seem to be cheap plastic crap that breaks immediately.

I use one like this, but you need to purchase at Walmart or AutoZone and check it out to confirm its the robust higher quality one - I dumped two that I bought online, then decided to inspect before I buy the next one, but that was some time ago and I cant recall where I bought it.

I use a 10 inch painters pad available anywhere.  Just the pad, not the holder.  I then wrap the pad with a microfiber towel.  I can really get to the bottom without killing myself.

Oh, forgot to mention that its better to ge one with plastic edges so you will not possibly cut yourself by mistake.

this is what i use and it's great. the triangular shape lets you get in anywhere. it comes with three bonnets; a bug scraping one, a dusting one, and a microfiber for glass. i have extra sets. it's also bowed so the pressure gets distributed well.

I've used this procedure from Chris Fix, and can report excellent results. (His video on exterior glass is the best procedure I've ever found and the glass stays clean for months).

Best tool for me is the backside of my hand (knuckle side up) Paper towels / lint cloth on top of backside. Makes getting the angle easy to clean.

I go to the kitchen, get the wife's silicon spatula, wrap the micro fiber around the head of the spatula and boom, can get into gaps like the more expensive windshield tool without spending a cent.
