This is a link to an excellent product clean the windows thoroughly before installing . Once installed the film is unvisible.
Expert:  Machinc replied 9 months ago.
It takes a little patience but is relatively easy to install.
You can buy enough to do one window at a time instead of trying to buy for the whole job
If you think you might not like doing it yourself.

It is a good product just shows more than the 3m that you have tinted the window.

For most people that is not a probllem.

Do not clean the windows with windex type products before applying films. Use soap and water rinsing thoroughly.
Expert:  Machinc replied 9 months ago.
Any old windex can be cleaned off with soap and water if you have already cleaned the windows
