Waxing Car Windows – Do or Don’t [VIDEO]
July 8, 2013
Achieving that perfectly shiny, incredibly impressive look for your car can be a bit of hassle. You will need to spend a considerable amount of time, money and effort to make sure that your beloved car stays lovely despite its high mileage. Most car owners know that washing and waxing are but two of the most important things that can be done to keep a car looking great throughout the years. But should you include waxing car windows?
The Importance of Washing Car Windows
Generally, car owners are lost at the importance of washing their cars’ windows. Some go for a vinegar-and-water solution while others are happy to buy commercial cleaning products. Still others just mix their favorite dish washing liquid with water and use the formula to clean up those ugly dust streaks and swirl marks on the windows.
The good news is that if you really want to make your car’s exterior shine like a star, you can do more than just washing and waxing car windows and windshields. Your car won’t ever be completely clean until the reflective surfaces mirror your image just like glass. So yes, you can put car wax on windows.
Waxing Car Windows Is Definitely a “Do”
Keep in mind these helpful do’s and dont’s as you rub and scrub your windows to a high shine.
Do’s of Waxing Car Windows
- Do Wash Your Car Thoroughly to Remove Surface Dirt
It’s never a good idea to wax any part of your car without cleaning it thoroughly first because then the wax will not bind to the glass material properly. You’re basically wasting money if you wax your car windows without cleaning them first.
- Do Use Only a Microfiber Wash Cloth to Apply Your Preferred Wax Product
This is a non-abrasive yet effective cleaning cloth that can help you bring out the gloss in your glass without scratching or denting it. The material will also lessen the appearance of pesky swirl marks after you’ve waxed all the windows.
- Do Apply Wax Regularly to Help Protect Your Windows from the Elements
It will also keep your windshield wipers working without a squeak. A good coating of wax will help repel rain, as well as quiet your windshield wipers when they’re in use. It’s best to wax your windows at least twice a year to really keep your car looking like it just rolled out of the showroom. Great-looking windows will help you complete your car’s pristine appearance.
Dont’s of Waxing Car Windows:
- Don’t Apply the Wax Product Immediately After a Clean-up
Allow your car to dry completely before applying wax. Use a clean, soft washcloth to buff the windows dry and remove swirl marks from your cleaning session before putting wax onto them.
- Don’t Purchase Just Any Wax Product
You can choose from either liquid wax or paste wax. Both products work great, but the main advantage of the former is that you won’t have to exert too much effort to apply the product on your car windows.
