best car wraps

The correct way of cleaning tinted car windows is to proceed with caution to avoid any damage of the tint film and thereby its functionality, at the same time being able to remove dirt, grime and fingerprints. We will give you step-by-step instructions on how such a process will be carried out in detail so that your car windows are always crystal clear without any smears. 

Gather Your Supplies Before you begin cleaning your tinted car windows, gather all the necessary supplies:

  • Gentle cleaner (ammonia-free) 
  • Microfiber cloth or damp sponge. 
  • Fresh water for cleaning. 
  • Optional: fast-drying, lint-free towel as well. 

Test in a Small Area: 

Before applying the cleaner on the whole of the window, a small testing place of the cleaner should be done in a place, at a spot that is not noticeable to check the compatibility of the cleaner and the tinted film. Thus, it is one of the measures aiming to protect the future aesthetic value of the items. 

Prepare the Cleaning Solution: 

Use the gentle cleaner in a spray bottle at the appropriate solution strength indication as directed by the manufacturer. Use a cleaner for ammonia lowering the effect on the safety-glass for film. 

Spray the Window: 

Spray a cleaning solution onto the shiny surface on the tinted window in order to diffuse the cleaning solution. Do not overestimate the hose at the window, otherwise it will be possible that excessive moisture will start sticking to the glass and give a mirror effect. 

Gently Wipe the Window: 

Resort to microfiber cloth or gently soft sponge and clean the windows in circular patterns with them to make sure dirt and dust are wiped off. Begin the cleaning process by starting at the top of the window frame and working your way to the bottom to have a more complete clean. 

Rinse with Clean Water: 

Wipe the window with a clean lint-free cloth to clean the window and rinse it using clean water from a spray bottle or hose to get rid of any soapy residue that remains. 

Dry the Window: 

Employ finely woven microfiber cloths or lint-free towels to dry the windows to ensure a streak-free finish. Wiping with back and forth straight, overlapping strokes to dry up any wet patches.

Check for Streaks or Spots: 

Inspect the window for any streaks or water spots. Take a look out the window for any streaks or water spots. In case this is required, spray the mentioned cleaning solution again and repeat the wiping and drying until the window is completely free of dirt and transparent. 

Repeat for Other Windows: 

Carry through the cleaning process on the leftover tinted car windows taking the same cleaning methods stated previously.

Maintain Regular Cleaning: 

To make sure that dirt does not accumulate, set a cleaning plan of your tinted car to maintain the distribution. In accordance with the driving conditions and environmental conditions which you may face, the window should be cleaned once a month otherwise if required it may be cleaned more frequently. 

Through this easy to follow procedure, it is possible to clean tinted car windows properly and the tint film will not be randomly scraped or destroyed. Keeping the cleaners gentle, performing the test on a small patch and avoiding rough materials are the best practices to follow in order to have the windows with tint looking great for the years and decades to come.
