Cleaning car windows is easy enough to do on the outside, but what about the inside? If you’re struggling to figure out how to clean the inside of your car windows without getting your interior wet, leaving streaks behind, and pulling a muscle trying to reach everything, this guide is for you. There are a few tools to get it done quickly and done well, but you can find them all at an auto parts store or a department store. Continue reading to learn more!

Clean your Car Windows with Microfiber Cloths

Don’t settle for anything less, especially inside your car. Buy a bunch of microfiber cloths and towels in bulk, if you own a car, you should use them to clean with all the time. Lay down extras on your car’s interior to protect them from dripping window cleaner and use more to do the actual cleaning.

You Should Always Use Ammonia-Free Glass Cleaner

Your car interior is a closed space, so always use ammonia-free cleaner to prevent you from breathing toxic fumes. Ammonia can also damage your car’s interior, ruin glass tinting, and leave streaks if it dries in the sun. Find a big bottle of ammonia-free glass cleaner and stick with it.

Use a Glass Cleaning Tool for Easy Reach

This is more optional, but a glass cleaning tool with a long handle and a pivoting clothes-iron-shaped head makes reaching corners and long stretches of your windshield and back window a breeze. These tools often allow you to attach your own microfiber to the pivoting head so you can clean seamlessly.

Good Glass Cleaning Technique

You can get the best results out of cleaning your windows by always cleaning from top to bottom and remembering to spray glass cleaner on your cloth first, not on the window. It may take a few passes over some difficult spots to get good results, so keep at it. Try to clean in a cross-hatch pattern as well, because circles can leave more noticeable streaks than vertical and horizontal lines.
