Regularly cleaning your car windows isn’t only about maintaining its appearance. Dirt, dust, droppings, and all sorts of other natural materials affect your windshields over time, making it difficult to view the road ahead. Below is how to keep your auto glass in the best condition possible.
The best cleaning solutions for car windows are simple and eco-friendly. Place a mixture of either one part vinegar and one part water or the same amount of rubbing alcohol and distilled water into a spray bottle. Avoid any harsh cleaning or ammonia-based products, as those solutions can damage the tint or vinyl. Spray your solution lightly on the auto glass to avoid large, wet streaks. Use a newspaper or microfiber towel to wipe down your windows; both options are lint-free and prevent streaks.
Additionally, keep enough space between your car and other vehicles in front of you. Especially on dirt or gravel roads, tires can kick back small pebbles and bits of stone and cause your windows to chip. Hailstorms can wreak havoc on your windows as well. If you can’t find cover from the storm, securely wrap large blankets around your car.
If your car windshield ends up damaged, schedule repairs with a professional auto glass service. Large stone chips have the potential to crack if left unattended, in which case windshield replacement is necessary.
