Detailing the Glass Parts of Your Car Like a Pro
It is important to regularly clean the glass surfaces of your car and also polish them. This helps to keep them looking cleaner for longer by repelling water and dirt. Plus, it also helps to prevent the windshield and mirrors from misting up during cold, damp periods. With that being said, here are the best tricks to make the glass parts of your vehicle sparkle.
Choosing a Glass Cleaner
When selecting an auto glass cleaner, choose those that do not contain ammonia or alcohol. These ingredients produce toxic fumes that may harm you. You will not only avoid health problems caused by inhaling the fumes but reduce the adverse impact of these components to the environment.
Also, harsh substances cause leather, plastic, rubber, and vinyl to dry out, and will damage any tint your windows may have. Do your homework, opt for biodegradable, 100% recyclable, and non-toxic, products.
Picking the Right Towel Type
For maximum results, use a high-quality microfiber towel of at least 300 GSM. This type of towel can easily absorb to eight times its weight in water and are lint-free. Plus, they are designed to lift-up dirt and debris from the surface without causing scratches.
Using the Towel
The buffing motion you use with your towel makes a difference. Preferably, do straight back-and-forth and then up-and-down movements. This will ensure that the entire surface has been cleaned and wiped down.
When cleaning your windshield, windows or mirrors, you want to avoid spreading the dirt and other contaminants that you took off of your mirrors, onto your windows or windshield. For this reason, use one towel to wipe the surface clean, and another one to buff the surface to achieve a shiny finish.
