How to Clean a Car Windshield Inside

Cleaning Car Dash and Windshield

Every driver knows how to clean a car windshield’s exterior, but cleaning inside the car windows can be trickier. If you want to know how to clean inside your car’s windshield or windows, Sacramento Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here to help! Don’t hesitate to contact our service center if you have any questions along the way.

How to Clean Inside Car Windows

If it looks like the Sacramento skyline is getting blurry, it’s time to clean the inside of your windshield. To do this, follow these simple steps below:

  1. Using a microfiber cleaning cloth, wipe down the glass to remove any grime or dirt on the windshield.
  2. Spray your preferred glass cleaner on the microfiber cleaning cloth and wipe down the inside of the windshield. This helps remove any remaining substances off the windshield.
  3. Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and wipe everything down inside of the window. This cuts any grease that can build up on the glass to ensure excellent visibility.
  4. Another round of glass cleaner or a glass polish applied at the end helps give the window better transparency.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

Yes, you can safely use Windex on car windows. Even though some suggest that you shouldn’t use it on tinted windows, there’s no proof that Windex with ammonia causes problems. If they were tinted by a third party, then it may be best to skip it. If they were tinted at the factory, then you won’t have any issues. When using Windex on the inside of the car, be sure to avoid getting the cleaning fluid on leather seats since it can dry out or discolor the leather.

When in doubt, don’t hesitate to contact our service center if you want to know more about which cleaning products are safe.

More Car Windshield Interior Cleaning Tips

If there are still spots on the inside of your window, follow these steps below: 

  • A microfiber cleaning cloth eliminates the small paper fibers you get when cleaning with paper towels. You’re less likely to leave streaks behind as well. 
  • Use a reach-and-clean tool to clean the corners of the windshield.
  • Use a circular motion when wiping with a microfiber cleaning cloth, but wipe vertically at the end to get rid of any streaks.

This cleaning process can be used with all interior windows, not just the windshield!
