When it comes to cleaning your car’s windows and glass surfaces, it’s easy to consider cutting corners and using inferior products. The result is a poor, and potentially dangerous, window that doesn’t give you the sheen or visibility you need.
Read on to find out more about why you need to use the right products to clean your car’s windows and how you can achieve the perfect finish.
How To Clean Your Car Glass Windows?
You should only clean them when it is cool day and drive the car in the shade. This will keep your car glass cleaner from evaporating in the sun or drying too quickly, which could cause it to leave streaks and smears, therefore, making it twice as hard to get clean.
What's The Best Process?
Spray your chosen car glass cleaner onto the window. Use a microfibre cloth, like our Microfibre Glass Cloth, to clean the glass using an up and down motion, then a side to side motion. Remove as much moisture as possible to leave your glass without streaks, but don't forget to wind down the windows halfway to clean the top.
Why Can't you Just Use A Household Window Cleaner?
Most household window products contain ammonia. You can use ammonia products on regular windows and mirrors, but you shouldn't use it on your car's glass. Ammonia leaves streaks on auto glass because its make up is different from regular glass. This creates glares while you drive and you will see the colours of the rainbow while you drive. This result might be pretty, but it's not ideal and could cause a fatal accident. Ammonia will also destroy tinted windows fading them, leaving unpleasant areas.
Which Cleaners Will Give My Car Glass A Shiny Finish?
There are many different glass cleaners on the market, many of which are designed to give your windows and surfaces a sleek finish. For example, our Alien Magic Glass Pro Hydrophobic Glass Coat Rain Repellant Beading Technology has been designed to leave your windows spotless and shiny, so you can take pride in your car at all times.
