Keeping your windshield clean is essential for clear visibility as dirt and debris can accumulate on it. Using the right methods will help you get a sparkling clean windshield, which increases the beauty of your vehicle and allow you to drive safely. Here are a few easy ways to keep your windshield clean.
1. Cleaning the Exterior
Lifting the wipers and using a diluted glass cleaning spray will ensure that the windshield is cleaned from top to bottom. Using a microfiber cloth will wipe your windshield without leaving any lint behind and making it squeaky clean. Vertical swipes are preferred while cleaning the windshield. Leave your wipers up until you’ve wiped the surface and let it dry. You can also use a mini car windshield wiper after spraying it to clean the windshield without pressing and scrubbing.
2. Cleaning the Interior
The interior area of the windshield is as important as the exterior one. Use a glass cleaner that doesn’t contain ammonia as it can damage the interior of your car. It’s recommended to use a dry cloth after wiping the windshield with a damp one, to prevent any streaks and spots.
3. Choose the Right Cleaning Supplies
Household glass cleaners contain ammonia, which can damage the tint of your windshield, so it’s best to get one that’s safe for tinted windows. Diluting the glass cleaner also helps reduce the damage to the lamination. Using a microfiber cloth is preferred to avoid lint as it’s made up of softer material that doesn’t form scratches while wiping the windscreen.
4. Cleaning It with the Wipers
While driving, if you feel like there are spots on your windshield that are obstructing your vision, you can use the wiper lever to release water and switch on the car’s wipers. This will help you clean the windshield immediately.
5. Removing Dirt Ingrained in The Surface of Your Windshield
You can use glass cleaning clay called detailing clay, which is an elastic compound that pulls out the dirt from any unreachable corners or tiny scratches. After spraying the water on your windshield, use the clay gliding it smoothly over the windscreen. It’ll attract all the dirt and leave your windshield flawlessly cleaned. Contact us
