How to Clean a Car Windshield Inside

Cleaning Car Dash and Windshield


Most Springfield drivers know how to clean the outside of their car windows, but don’t know how to clean a car windshield on the inside. To clean a car windshield inside, you’ll need glass cleaner, a microfiber towel, and some rubbing alcohol. Then follow these easy steps on how to clean inside car windows from Green Dodge to increase your visibility on Chatham streets. You can also contact our service team with any questions.

How to Clean Inside Car Windows

If it’s hard to see Rochester roads because of streaks on your windshield, then it’s past time to clean the inside of your front windshield. Follow these steps, and you’ll have the “inside story” on how to clean a car windshield:

  • Wipe down the glass with a microfiber cleaning cloth to remove any dirt on the windshield.
  • Spray some glass cleaner on the microfiber cleaning cloth and wipe down the inside of your windows. This should help get any remaining substances off the windows.
  • Apply the rubbing alcohol to a clean microfiber cloth and thoroughly wipe the inside again. This cuts through the grease that builds up on the glass and improves visibility as you drive around Decatur.
  • Apply one last round of glass cleaner to help give the window even better clarity.

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

Yes, you can use Windex on car windows. While some people might think you shouldn’t use it with tinted windows, there’s no evidence that the ammonia in Windex causes problems. Still, if a third party has tinted your windows, play it safe and skip the Windex. But if they were tinted originally, you won’t have any problems. If you’re using Windex in the cabin of your new Dodge, be careful not to get the cleaner on your leather seats, as it might dry out or discolor your leather.

More Car Windshield Cleaning Tips

If you still have streaks or spots on the inside of your window, follow these steps:

  • Using a microfiber cleaning cloth will eliminate the small fibers left behind when cleaning with paper towels. You’ll also see fewer streaks. 

Use a reach-and-clean tool to reach the corners of your windows.

  • Start with a circular motion when wiping with a microfiber cleaning cloth, but then wipe vertically near the end to remove any remaining streaks.
  • Repeat the process on all your car windows.
