While cleaning the outside of a car windshield is usually hassle-free, knowing how to clean a car windshield inside can be a bit more of a challenge. To perform this task successfully, you’ll need a microfiber towel, glass cleaner, and rubbing alcohol. The steps listed below can help you achieve a streak-free shine each time you clean your windshield.

How to Clean Inside Car Windows

If you noticed decreased visibility on the roads of Vineland and Millville, a dirty windshield could be the culprit:

  • First, wipe down the glass with a microfiber cleaning cloth. This should help to get rid of any grime or dirt that has accumulated on your windshield.
  • Spray glass cleaner on the microfiber cleaning cloth rather than spraying it directly on the windshield. Wipe down the inside of the windshield to remove any stuck-on debris that remained.
  • Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the inside of the window. Why is this step beneficial? It helps to get rid of grease on the glass.
  • Wipe down the window once more using a glass cleaner or a glass polish.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

When learning how to clean a car windshield, a common question we hear is, “Can you use Windex on car windows?” In most cases, Windex can be used safely on the windows of your vehicle. Some Washington Township drivers with tinted windows may be hesitant to use a product like Windex that contains ammonia, but there is little evidence that it causes damage. If you had your windows tinted by a third party, it may be best to skip using the product just in case. If the windows were tinted at the factory, Windex should be safe to use. Keep in mind that when cleaning the interior glass, avoid getting any Windex on leather seats because it can discolor the leather or cause it to dry out. If you still have questions about what product to use, you can always contact us.

More Car Windshield Cleaning Tips

If your windows still are not as clear as you want them to be, try the following suggestions:

  • Cleaning with paper towels can leave small paper fibers behind. That is why it is best to use a microfiber cleaning cloth. Not only does this get rid of those fibers, microfiber cloths minimize the likelihood of streaks.
  • A reach-and-clean tool can help you clean those tough corners of the windshield.
  • With your microfiber cloth, use a circular motion to clean the glass, but then wipe vertically at the end to remove streaks.
  • The tips mentioned above apply to both the windshield and the other windows of your vehicle. .
