Wipe with a dry microfiber cloth
The windshield is a major part of your car’s safety system. It keeps wind, rain and other debris from hitting you in the face while driving. A dirty windshield can hinder your vision and even damage the paint on your car. The good news is that cleaning your windshield doesn’t require anything more than a few basic supplies and a little elbow grease.
- Wipe with a dry microfiber cloth to loosen dirt and grime. Microfiber cloths are made of tightly woven synthetic fibers that trap dirt and dust particles without scratching glass surfaces. They’re available at any automotive store or online retailer. If you don’t have one, you can use an old towel instead, but it may leave behind lint that could scratch your windshield later on.
- Spray glass cleaner directly onto the windshield if necessary. Glass cleaners come in many different varieties; some are designed for removing stains from inside the car while others are designed for cleaning windows outside of vehicles.

Mix white vinegar, rubbing alcohol and warm water
The inside of your car’s windshield can get dirty with time. If you want to clean it, here are some tips that will help you do it.
- Mix white vinegar, rubbing alcohol and warm water in a spray bottle.
- Use a clean microfiber cloth or cotton cloth to wipe down the windshield inside.
- Spray the solution onto the glass and allow it to soak for one minute before wiping off with a dry rag or paper towel. You can also put on rubber gloves if you don’t want to get your hands wet or dirty while cleaning.
- Use an all-purpose cleaner to remove dirt from your car’s windshield inside. Make sure that it is not ammonia-based because ammonia has a strong smell that might irritate your nose later on when driving your car around town or through traffic jams.
- Use a damp cloth and rub off any dirt with circular strokes until you see no more streaks on the glass surface anymore, which means it is clean enough for you to drive safely without worrying about glare or distracting yourself from driving properly because of dirt on your glass screen.
Apply the solution to windshield
The glass on your windshield is exposed to the elements, which means it’s prone to getting dirty. Cleaning the inside of your windshield can be tricky because you can’t use a lot of pressure or force when cleaning it. To clean the inside of your windshield, follow these steps:
- Use a clean microfiber cloth to apply the solution to your windshield.
- Use a squeegee and wipe away any excess liquid.
- Spray water on a second microfiber cloth and wipe down the glass again.
Wipe away the solution and dirt
Cleaning the inside of your windshield can be made easy and quick. Here are some simple steps to follow:
- Make sure that the car is cool and the windows are closed, so that no dirt gets in while you are cleaning them.
- Use a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the inside of the windshield with it. This will remove any small pieces of dirt or dust that may be on it, as well as grease and oil from your hands. If there are any stains on your windshield, use a glass cleaner to wipe them off using a sponge or cloth.
- Use another clean microfiber cloth to wipe away the solution and dirt. If there is any residue left behind by your glass cleaner, use a paper towel or regular towel to wipe this away before putting the wipers back on your car.
Use glass cleaner on the exterior
The most important part of windshield care is keeping it clean. Most people don’t realize that their windows are actually more than just a piece of glass. They’re made up of two layers: the outside layer is called the “glass,” and the inside layer is called the “lens.” The lens has a protective coating that prevents it from getting scratched by sand or rocks when you’re driving, so you want to make sure it stays in good shape as long as possible.
To clean your windshield, use a glass cleaner that contains ammonia or alcohol, these substances will help dissolve dirt and grime. Apply the cleaner with a clean rag or paper towel to both sides of the window, then wipe them down with a dry cloth afterwards. You should do this once every week or two to keep your windows looking nice and clear!
Always clean the outside of your windshield with a towel. You don’t want any abrasive residue to scratch the glass. If you still have streaks on the outside when you’re done, don’t use anything abrasive like paper towel because it will scratch the glass.
