Service tech wiping down a car window

Most of our Corpus Christi drivers know how to clean the outside of their windshield, but the inside can be trickier. To clean the inside of a car windshield on your new Pacifica or Ram 1500, you’ll need a microfiber towel, glass cleaner, and rubbing alcohol. Then follow these steps to increase visibility and get rid of distracting streaks.

How to Clean Inside Car Windows

If the Kingsville skyline is getting blurry, you may want to clean the inside of your windshield:

  • First, wipe down the glass with a microfiber cleaning cloth. That will remove any grime or dirt that’s on the windshield.
  • Spray your preferred brand of glass cleaner on the microfiber cleaning cloth and wipe down the inside of the windshield. This should get any remaining substances off the windshield, but you’re not done yet.
  • Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the inside of the window. This cuts any grease that can build up on the glass and ensures great visibility.
  • Another round of glass cleaner or a glass polish applied at the end can help give the window even better transparency.

Can You Used Windex on Car Windows?

You can use Windex on car windows safely.

  • While some will say you shouldn’t use it with tinted windows, there’s no evidence that Windex with ammonia causes problems. If your windows have been tinted by a third party, you may want to play it safe and skip it, but if they were tinted at the factory, you won’t have any problems.
  • If you’re using Windex inside the car, you won’t want to get the cleaner on leather seats, as it can dry out or discolor the leather.

You can always contact Allen Samuels CDJR Aransas Pass near Port Lavaca and ask if your cleaning products are safe.

More Car Windshield Cleaning Tips

Still have spots on the inside of your window? Make sure you’re taking these steps:

  • A microfiber cleaning cloth eliminates the small paper fibers you get when cleaning with paper towels. They’re also less likely to leave streaks.
  • To reach the corners of the windshield, use a reach-and-clean tool.
  • Use a circular motion when wiping with a microfiber cleaning cloth, but then wipe vertically at the end to remove streaks.
  • This cleaning process can be used with all interior windows, not just the windshield.
