Would drying the windows with a scrunched up sheet of newspaper do the job? (after washing the car)
Absolutely.

Try it on your bathroom mirror or any glass and see for yourself.

The secret is to completely dry off the glass with the newspaper.

First rub the glass with a wet cloth or newspaper. Then dry the remaining droplets with a dry newspaper.

IMO, using anything but tap water will leave some smudges that are difficult to dry with newspaper.

IMO, tap water with a "black and white" newspaper.

It is the bleach in the newspaper (ammonia) that reduces the streaks. Older newspapers were better as they had more bleach, but since it makes recycling more difficult they have reduced the amount of bleach used.

That said hazy windows are caused by the dash plastics and silcone based treatments slowly drying/evaporizing or not fully removing the glass cleaning product.

I use Meguiars Glass Cleaner, which I apply with a terry cloth and wipe off with a separate terry cloth. Perfect long lasting results IMO.
