How to Clean Glass
How to Clean Your Car WindowsI don’t know about you, but what annoys me most is dirty, smudged or streaked windows. I have been cleaning windows for years and I cannot seem to ever perfect this step.
But here are the best ways I have found to clean glass.
There are a couple of tips we can give to make the job easier.
- Allows work in a cool shaded area so the glass is not hot and does not dry quickly.
- Use a glass microfiber towel like our Bull Shine Glossy Glass Microfiber Towel
- Wipe the glass in an up-and-down motion, then in a side-to-side motion.
Here are the steps to ensuring clear glass
- In a shaded area, Spray glass cleaner directly on the glass. This allows for the spray to help dissolve bugs, tar, sap, dirt and less desirable bird droppings. For bigger areas like the windshield and back window, wash the windows in sections to ensure they are properly cleaned.
- Use a glass microfiber towel to dry the windows. Wipe the glass in an up-and-down motion, then in a side-to-side motion to ensure the windows are streak-free.
- For stubborn bugs, there are 3 options
- Use a razor blade and scrape the window to remove those pesky bugs
- Use a bug remover similar to our Bull Shine Bug Gone – spray on similar to glass cleaner and let dissolve and then wipe off with a microfiber towel
- Use clay on the windows. The clay will grab on to the bugs, tar or sap and remove it immediately. Always remember to use a clay lubricant and just lien paint, the glass will be smooth when all contaminants are removed.
For interior windows, the process is a bit different because you do not want to spray the glass cleaner directly on the glass. This prevents more clean up by not allowing the overspray to land on the interior components like the dash or doors.
- Spray the glass cleaner onto the cloth
- Wipe the glass with a glass microfiber towel in an opposite direction as the exterior. This allows you to see what side of the window may need to be cleaned again if the glass is streaked of smudged
Tip: Clean the windows from the passenger side. This allows you to fully reach the windshield without the steering wheel in the way.
