I've had good luck with high purity (99.95%) isopropyl alcohol (IPA).

I usually wipe down the platter with IPA after using mother's mag and aluminum polish, and end up with a streak free finish.

Just another thought....the cloth being used makes all the difference too. Make sure its a microfiber cloth, and that it was dried in the dryer WITHOUT a dryer sheet. The dryer sheets will leave residue on the microfiber cloths.
