How to Clean a Car Windshield Inside

Hand Cleaning Interior Windshield

While a quick drive through the car wash will clean the exterior of your windshield, the inside of the windshield is neglected. However, learning how to clean a car windshield inside is a quick and simple process. First, you’ll need a microfiber towel, glass cleaner, and rubbing alcohol. Then, follow the steps below to increase your windshield visibility and avoid streaks.

How to Clean Inside Car Windows

If it’s becoming increasingly difficult to see out of your windshield in Cottage Grove, it’s probably time for a cleaning. Take a look at these steps to getting a crisp and clear windshield interior:

  1. Wipe down the windshield with a microfiber cleaning cloth. This will remove any dirt or residue from the glass.
  2. Spray your preferred type of glass cleaner on the microfiber cloth and wipe down the inside of the windshield. This should remove any remaining grime that’s on the glass.
  3. Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the window’s interior. The rubbing alcohol will get rid of any grease buildup on the glass to increase visibility.
  4. If you want to guarantee even better visibility, you can repeat the first three steps.

Can You Use Windex On Car Windows?

A frequent question we’re asked by Roseburg drivers is: ‘can you use Windex on car windows?’ The answer is yes, you can use Windex on car windows safely. Even though some say that it’s not safe to use Windex on tinted windows, there’s no evidence that Windex with ammonia causes issues. However, if your windows were tinted by a third party, it might be best to take precautionary measures and avoid Windex. But if they were tinted at the factory, you won’t have to worry about any damages. When you’re using Windex inside of the car, you’ll want to be careful, especially if you have leather seats; Windex can dry out the leather or discolor it. Contact our service center if you’re ever in doubt about what products to use.

More Tips on How To Clean a Car Windshield Inside

If you still have spots inside of your window, take a look at the tips below:

  • Using a microfiber cleaning cloth will eliminate the small paper fibers that are left behind when you clean with paper towels. They’re also less likely to leave streaks on the window.
  • If you’re having trouble reaching the corners of the windshield, you can use a reach-and-clean tool.
  • Make sure to use a circular motion when wiping with a microfiber cleaning cloth, but then wipe vertically at the end to get rid of any streaks.
  • Fortunately, this cleaning process can be used with all of your vehicle’s windows.
