Cleaning the Inside of Your Car’s Windshield

Cleaning the outside of your car’s windshield can be done in a few ways. First, you can opt to take your vehicle to a car wash. The problem with this option is you’ll have to pay for a more comprehensive and expensive package to get the inside of your vehicle cleaned. You can rely on your vehicle’s windshield washers, but you’ll need to make sure they have enough windshield fluid. You can also clean the outside of your windshield when you stop to get gas. The issue arises when drivers want to clean off the inside of their car’s windshields. Your vehicle will look better, and you will also have increased visibility. Check out the following tips to clean the inside of your windshield:

  • Use a dry microfiber towel to wipe down the inside of your windshield glass to remove any stuck-on dirt and grime.
  • Spray your preferred brand of glass cleaner onto your microfiber towel and wipe down the inside of your windshield. This step cleans any remaining grime or dirt off your windshield.
  • Use rubbing alcohol on a fresh microfiber towel to wipe down the inside of the windshield. Doing this removes fogginess while boosting visibility.
  • Apply a glass cleaner or polish once again to give you even better visibility and extra shine.

Can You Use Window to Clean Your Car’s Windshield?

You can use Windex to wash the inside of your car’s windshield if you so choose. You can use just about any household glass cleaner for the inside of your car’s windows. Be careful with Windex because it could discolor or dry out your leather upholstery. Windex could also cause damage to tinted windows, but there’s not much evidence to support that theory. We don’t recommend using Windex on window tint installed by a third party such as USA Auto Glass Florida.
