How to Clean a Car Windshield Inside

Car windshield close up on sunny day

Have you recently washed your new Mitsubishi only to discover that there’s still a hazy residue on your windshield? This is a not uncommon problem, and can be easily remedied by learning how to properly clean your car’s windshield inside and out. This windshield cleaning guide from the service team at Victory Mitsubishi will show you how to clean a car windshield the right way. Find out whether you can use Windex on car windows and more, and if you’d like additional auto care advice, be sure to check out our Mitsubishi service tips. We’re here to help keep your vehicle running smoothly and looking its best on the roads in and around Mount Vernon.


Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

A common question that many car owners ask is, “Can you use Windex on car windows?” The answer is yes. That being said, we recommend that Westchester-area car owners avoid using Windex. While the ammonia in Windex is okay to use on window tints done by the factory, it can cause damage to window tint installed by a third party. Windex is also known to leave streaks if not used properly. Choosing a cleaning solution that is made specifically for car windshields is the best option. You can find the right windshield cleaning products for your Mitsubishi in our Parts Center.

Items You’ll Need to Properly Clean a Car Windshield

Avoid using paper towels on your windshield. They can leave lint, streaks, or even cause small scratches, leaving a permanent haze on the glass instead of clearing it up. So, how do you clean the inside of car windows the right way? The first thing you’ll need to do is gather up the following materials:

  • Microfiber cloth
  • Automotive glass cleaner or a homemade cleaning mix (made with water, a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid, a few drops of vinegar)
  • Rubbing alcohol

Four Steps to Cleaning a Car Windshield Inside

We’ve looked at various methods on how to clean inside car windows and have determined that following the steps below will work best. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Service Center near New Rochelle:

  1. Wipe the windshield down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth to remove any dirt.
  2. Use another clean cloth to apply a bit of rubbing alcohol in order to remove any grease from the glass.
  3. Spray your glass cleaner on the other side of your microfiber cloth (not on the windshield). Then, wipe the glass using a circular motion.
  4. Make sure to completely dry the glass, as any glass cleaner left on the windshield will leave residue or streaks.
