How Often Do You Clean Your Windows Southtowne?

HeyAtlanta Cars owners, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore wants to know: are you one of the people who forget about the windows when your detailing your car? If you are, don’t worry. You’re not alone. A lot of people forget about cleaning their windows. It’s funny because the windows are actually one of the only things on your car you really should keep clean because it obviously helps improve visibility.

Another thing a lot of people forget is that household cleaners should never be used to clean auto glass because almost all of them contain ammonia, and we want to avoid using them in enclosed areas like our cars. So if you’re thinking about grabbing the Windex from under your sink right now, stop right there!

On the other hand, you don’t really want to use plain water either. Though it is the safe method, water alone is not enough of a solvent to cut through the protein base of those tough spots like bug remains. Using a glass-cleaning mircofiber towel, on the other hand, will definitely get the job done and it’s super easy to use. Simply dampen the towel with an ammonia-free cleaner (there are several brands dedicated to auto glass) and clean the glass in circular movements. Then find a dry side of the towel, and use it to buff out every last little streak.

Now that you know what you’ll need to clean the windows, let’s talk guidelines. First and foremost, always start with detailing your vehicle. That way, you won’t risk getting fingerprints or other residue on your clean windows while washing the car.

Avoid washing the windows in the sun. The sun can cause water to evaporate too quickly leaving residue. You’ll also want to spend some extra time on the windshield because you rely on this piece of glass more than any other. The same goes for the back window, as well.

Finally, don’t forget to roll down the door windows to get the tops of the glass, and remember, you won’t always get everything the first time. So take your time and the sit back and enjoy your handy work.
