Maintaining the cleanliness of your car windshield is an important step that shouldn’t be skipped. Not only will it improve the appearance of your vehicle, but smudges and grime that reflect light can make it difficult to see through your windshield at night, putting yourself and others at risk while driving. Cleaning the inside of the windshield can be much trickier than the outside, but these simple tips make it easy to tackle this task.
Most of the grease that builds on the windshield is due to the off-gassing of your car’s vinyl interior. Vinyl and plastic are full of oils that evaporate under heat, which rise up and stick to the glass.
To remove this film, the first step is to wipe the entire surface with a clean, dry, microfiber towel. This material will prevent any additional dust or lint from gathering on the surface. Next, you’ll want to wipe away the built-up residue with rubbing alcohol or a magic eraser. These items will remove any grime without damaging the glass. The final step is to use a glass cleaner to ensure a clean surface without any streaks. This method can also be used in other locations in your car, such as the rear glass or side windows.
