A clean and clear windshield is essential for safe driving. While most motorists routinely clean their vehicle’s exterior, many often overlook the importance of maintaining their windshield’s interior, compromising visibility and posing a safety risk. This post will guide you through a simple step-by-step process to clean your interior windshield effectively.
To clean the inside of your windshield: Apply a conservative amount of glass cleaner, take a microfiber towel or reach & clean tool and wipe in long, straight motions, touch up any lingering smudges or streaks, and if you’re working on an older car, apply an anti-fog product.
Gather the necessary supplies
Before cleaning, assemble the following essentials:
- A streak-free glass cleaner, such as Invisible Glass
- Fresh microfiber towels or a Reach & Clean Tool
- An Anti-Fog solution, if you’re working with an older vehicle
Apply a conservative amount of glass cleaner
Start by spraying a conservative amount of glass cleaner onto the interior side of the windshield. Ensure a thin, even coverage. Remember: the more you put on, the more you’ll have to wipe off. Start small, and scale up as needed to avoid pooling and streaks.
Take a microfiber towel or reach & clean tool and wipe in long straight motions
Wipe the glass in long, straight motions with a fresh microfiber towel. Start from the top and work your way down, covering the entire windshield surface. Be sure to apply gentle pressure to remove any stubborn dirt or smudges.
Alternatively, you can use a Reach & Clean Tool for optimal results. This tool extends your reach, allowing you to get all nooks and crannies within the tight areas of the windshield. Use a similar technique to what you’d use with a microfiber, wiping in long, straight motions or the best results.
Touch up lingering smudges or streaks
Inspect the windshield after wiping it down. If you notice any lingering smudges or streaks, use a clean section of the microfiber towel or a different clean towel to touch up those areas. Use light pressure and straight strokes to prevent streaking.
If you notice lingering dirt or debris, you may need to allow your glass cleaning product some time to work. Simply reapply the glass cleaner, wait momentarily, and wipe with a clean microfiber towel or Reach & Clean Tool.
If working with an older car, apply an anti-fog product
If you’re driving an older vehicle, your windshield likely fogs up quickly, especially in an area with high humidity or changing temperatures. A freshly-cleaned windshield provides the perfect opportunity to apply an anti-fog product that will help visibility and keep you and your passengers safe.
Consider Invisible Glass’ Anti Fog if you need an anti-fog product. Anti-fog minimizes surface tension between your glass and water molecules, creating a hydrophilic surface that repels liquid. It’s easy to use and apply in a few simple steps.
- Ensure the interior windshield is clean of dirt and debris
- Spray a small amount onto a fresh microfiber towel or cleaning bonnet
- Wipe onto the windscreen using long, straight motions
Keep your interior windshield clear as glass should be!
