Cleaning Inside Windows

Have you ever noticed the difference clean windows can make in the way your car feels? You can clean the outside of your windows as often, and as thoroughly as you possibly can, but if you don't clean the inside of the windshields and windows every once in a while, you are missing out on truly clean glass.

Properly cleaning your windows does not have to take a very long time. By using this process, you can clean your own windshield, and save money by not having anyone else do it for you. Using this method you also enable yourself to have a more safe driving experience, since you no longer have an obstructed view. To do this, you only need two things, ammonia-free glass cleaner, and some paper towels. That's it.

To begin, spray your glass cleaner onto the front windshield, and wipe off the spray in a motion going in one single direction, using a paper towel. Do not spray too much onto the windshield, or you are going to over saturate the paper towel. Doing this should enable you to get a streak free, clean windshield. If not, then try using some newspaper as well.

When you are working on your side windows, start off with your windows rolled up. Follow the same process as described above. When you have cleaned those windows as well as you can, roll the window down a little bit. As you roll the window down, you are going to notice that there is a line of dark crud along the top. Follow the same procedure to clean the top of the window. Start by spraying a little of the cleaner onto the glass and wipe it off with either a paper towel or newspaper. As before, you want to wipe off the cleaner going in the same direction each time.

While you are cleaning the side windows, you may notice that you are cleaning the outside at the same time that you are cleaning the inside. If this is the case, then go ahead and clean the outside. You might as well do both, that way you can make sure that you are getting everything while it's easy to spot any tough spots or stains that may need closer attention.

If you will clean horizontally on one side and vertically on the other side, you will be able to easily tell which side that last smear is on.
