How to Clean a Car Windshield Inside – Four Steps

Thecar detailing experts at Partyka Mazda know how to clean inside car windows so that they sparkle with clarity. And they’re willing to share their secrets with you. So, here’s our guide on how to clean a car windshield inside:

  1. Wipe the windshield down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth to remove any dirt.
  2. Use another cloth to apply a bit of rubbing alcohol to remove any grease from the glass.
  3. Spray your glass cleaner on the other side of your microfiber cloth (not on the windshield). Then, wipe the glass in a circular motion.
  4. Completely dry the glass. Any glass cleaner left on the windshield will leave residue or streaks.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

So, can you use Windex on car windows? The reason a lot of our North Haven customers have asked this question is because of the perception that Windex will ruin tint. The fact is, Windex is safe to use on tint that was installed at the factory. However, we recommend that you do not use Windex if the tint on your windows was installed by a third party.
