How to Clean Inside Car Windows

Follow these steps to when you want to clean inside car windows in %%target_ city_2%%:

  • To start, wipe the windshield with a microfiber cleaning cloth to remove grime and dirt off the glass.
  • Spray the glass thoroughly with a glass cleaner and wipe down the inside of the windshield.
  • Want to remove streaks? Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the inside of the windshield. This eliminates grease build up on the windshield and ensures no streaks.
  • Choosing to clean the windshield inside with a second round of glass cleaner will make it even more transparent.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

Windex is perfectly safe to use on car windows. Some advise not using Windex on tinted windows, despite there being no evidence of Windex causing damage – if you have OEM tinted windows. If your car windows were tinted by an aftermarket manufacturer in Burbank, it’s better to not Windex them. When you’re using Windex inside your car, be sure not to get the cleaner on leather seats since it can dry out or discolor it.
