3 Tips for Keeping Your Auto Glass Crystal Clear, Honolulu, Hawaii

Whether it’s the weather or debris rocketed toward your car by other vehicles, a windshield can go from spotless to grimy quickly. Naturally, driving safely requires a clear windshield, but cleaning your auto glass isn’t as simple as wiping it down with a towel. The pros at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop in Honolulu, HI, are experts on keeping auto glass crystal clear and are happy to share some important cleaning tips.

Much like you wouldn’t clean anything in your home with whatever happens to be around, what you clean your auto glass with and how you clean it are very important. The next time you’re straining to see through your windshield’s dirt, keep these tips in mind:

  • auto glassPay Attention To Your Wiping Method: Wiping in circular motions can leave gigantic swirly streaks on your windshield, so slowing down and methodically wiping is recommended. Wipe half the windshield in straight, vertical lines and then straight, horizontal lines. After one half is done, repeat the process on the other side.
  • Choose Your Cleaner Carefully: If you choose to clean your auto glass with an ammonia-based cleaning solution, be careful not to get any on the vinyl and rubber material on and in your car. Ammonia is great for cleaning glass but can crack window seals and even cause leather to fade.
  • Seek The Shade: If your car is parked in the blazingly hot sun while you clean, the chemical cleaner may evaporate before you get a chance to wipe it off the auto glass. This can lead to more streaking, so it’s best to move your vehicle to a shaded area before starting.

Keeping your windshield clean ensures your vehicle looks good and keeps you safe on the road. But cleaning is just one element of caring for your auto glass. Sometimes, other types of damage come into play, making glass repairs necessary. For professional auto glass replacement and repairs, residents of Honolulu can’t go wrong with consulting the experts at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop.
