Tint-Safe Glass Cleaner?

I've heard that some glass cleaner is not safe for tint, and I'm gonna be doing some major cleaning on the Ranger this weekend, and my windows are all covered in a thick layer of dust/dirt (it's hard to get away from in FL)

Thanks Everyone!

I believe it needs to be ammonia free. I use Stoners Invisible Glass with no problems. http://www.autogeek.net/glass-cleaner.html

I use that invisible glass sometimes. When I got my windows tinted in FL they gave me some silicon cleaner for the tint and it works pretty well.

Coming from me. Being a window tinter. All I can say is a spray bottle with soapy water and a paper towel is all you need. You dont need any fancy cleaners or expensive **** like that. Just a spray bottle with a tiny I mean TINY! bit of soap and some good old H2O. And you'll be in good shape! =]
