How to Wash Your Car’s Windows?

how to clean car windows You must have noticed that when you wash your car’s windows, your car looks very clean and perfect. However, most of us ignore washing the car windows! Washing your windows only require a few extra minutes.

Hazy and dirty windows are not only ugly to look at but also pose as a safety hazard especially when you have to drive your car on a rainy night or in heavy traffic. Driving in these conditions will actually offer you a driving impairment in the long run. This is a true danger during driving and apart from the hazard; it will also ruin the appearance of your perfectly polished car. Amongst all the car detailing tasks, cleaning the windows is the most tedious job, but keeping your car windows crystal-clear is bound to bestow your car the brand new look.

Helpful Window Cleaning Products

You should always refrain from using household glass cleaners on your car windows as they are not designated to serve this purpose and almost all of them contain ammonia. Although glass cleaners with ammonia serve as a great grease cutter yet they are not the right ones for your vehicle. They can adversely react negatively with the other parts of the car containing rubber, leather, vinyl and plastic. Also, they should never be used on tinted glass windows.

Some of the best glass cleaners which can be used for tinted glass are the Stoner Invisible Glass, Detailer’s Pro Series Krystal Vision Glass Cleaner and Meguiar’s NXT Generation Glass Cleaner. While using glass cleaners for tinted glass, apply them only on the inside where the tint is visible. This will help to seal the tint material (Mylar) and will also help you to keep it clean as well. The tint-safe glass cleaners are non-static, non-streaking and they dry away without leaving any residue behind.

On the other hand, many people just use plain water as their glass cleaner but it is not enough to take away the stubborn stains such as the remains of bugs. However, you can make use of a glass-cleaning microfiber towel such as the Cobra Waffle Weave Microfiber Glass Towel, along with water or other glass cleaners, which will offer a mild scrubbing action and this, will also eliminate any chances of contamination.

Tips on Cleaning Car Windows

  1. The car windows must be cleaned the last in order to avoid contamination.
  2. Do not work under the sun as it may cause the glass cleaner to evaporate which might leave residue behind.
  3. You must spend extra time cleaning the windshield as your driving depends on its cleanliness.
  4. You should roll down your windows halfway so it will be easier to clean the top edges of the window.
  5. You can also make use of a combination of glass cleaners for cleaning the car windows.

Detailing your car windows will not take more than a few minutes and it will definitely look good next to your spotlessly clean and waxed car. If you feel cleaning the car windows is a less strenuous task, then you can use the help of professional detailers.
