How to Clean Inside Car Windows

Whether you’re cleaning the windows or windshield in La Puenta, the methods for how to clean inside car windows are the same. Follow these easy steps to cleaning inside car windows below:

  • To remove dirt and grime, first use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe off the surface of your glass. 
  • Spray a glass cleaner directly into a cloth and wipe down the inside of your windows and windshield.
  • Then, apply rubbing alcohol to another clean microfiber towel and wipe down the inside surfaces of the window to remove grease and oils.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

Many Glendora drivers wonder, ‘can you use Windex on car windows?’ Yes, you can! But, keep a few things in mind when Windexing car windows:

  • If you have tinted windows, you might want to rethink your options. Typically, there is no evidence that Windex with ammonia causes issues. Factory-tinted cars shouldn’t have a problem. But if you’ve got a third-party tint, you might want to skip the Windex.
  • If you use Windex inside the car, be extra careful. The chemical compounds in the solution can discolor your leather seats permanently.
