Professional Advice to Wash Your Tinted Windows

Poorly maintained tinted car windows will be evidenced by bubbling or a peeling layer of film on the inside of the windows. Once tint starts to come off, there is no turning back. You will have to retint the affected areas, or in the worst scenario, remove it entirely. This is why it is paramount to carefully wash the windows to ensure proper care and to avoid any bubbling or peeling.

First, your car’s windows should be the last thing you want to clean.

Avoid washing your car in direct sunlight; we recommend doing it a shaded area as this makes things dry slower, reducing the chance of water spots. Plus, it makes the job easier.

Never use abrasive cotton or paper. Instead, use microfiber towels, which are soft and can absorb a lot of water. Usually, you will need one towel for applying the ammonia-free soap and another for drying.

Tint-Friendly Cleaning

With a microfiber towel, apply the ammonia-free soap to the inside or the window. When the entire window is covered, dry it right away. If there is difficult grime, repeat the procedure.

Next, grab the second microfiber towel and quarter it to make a smaller surface area for removing the cleaning soap. It is normal to see a thin film of cleaner while drying the window. Just use plenty of pressure to make sure it is all removed. If it dries, you will have have to start the process again.

By keeping these simple tinted window cleaning tips in mind, you will avoid bubbles, film peeling, and scratches, ensuring that the tint lasts longer.
