Cleaning Your Windshield

Be Careful With Wiper Usage

Picture this, you’re driving somewhere, and suddenly a bug gets stuck on your windshield. We’ve all been there, and our first reaction is to use our car’s wipers to clean it out of the way. The thing is, sometimes insects are a bit more sticky, and using your vehicle’s wipers will only spread it around your windshield, making visibility tricky. For safety, please avoid using your wipers while driving and instead try cleaning it up when you get to your destination.

Remove Residues

One very normal side effect of driving is getting dirt and debris stuck to your windshield. Also, when not using your car, dirt can accumulate, making it harder to see when driving. Before using your car, spend some extra time cleaning your windshield to ensure you have perfect visibility when on the road.

Clean It With Soap and Water

When washing your windshield, use a combination of soap and water to get it clean, a little bit of degreaser to facilitate the washing process; make sure it isn’t corrosive as this could hurt your windshield and car body. Let it act for a few minutes and wipe it off with a wet cloth.

Removing Tough Substances

For tougher substances, you might need a little extra help in getting them out. A good option is to use a little bit of hot water to loosen them up. If you use this method, make sure the water shouldn’t be over 120 degrees as it could hurt your windshield. After using hot water, scrub in a circular motion with a soft cloth or a soft bristle brush.

Non-Stick Products are Your Friends

Luckily, there are products on the market that prevent insects, frost, and dust from adhering to your windshield. Using these products frequently can help you avoid struggling with your windshield care when cleaning your car.

Use Soft Fabrics to Wipe It

When wiping your windshield, it’s best to use soft fabrics like a microfiber cloth to avoid scratching it. Additionally, before you wipe, make sure that your cloth is free of dirt or debris that could scratch the glass.

Caring for your windshield is step number one of caring for your car. Next is to use the best products possible to keep your vehicle in good shape, like AMOSIL’s Glass Cleaner.

Care in Difficult Weather and Road Conditions

Removing Ice and Snow

Two elements that you’ll eventually need to deal with are ice and snow on your windshield. One thing to remember is that you shouldn’t activate your vehicle’s wipers without removing them first. For snow, remove it with a soft bristle brush. For ice, use an ice scraper or an antifreeze spray. When using an ice scraper, always make sure to drag in the same direction to avoid scratching the glass.

Removing Sand

If you ever find yourself in sandy conditions and notice your windshield has sand on it, throw some water from the top of the windshield to wash away the sand or blow on the surface with a small compressor to disperse it.

Avoid Cargo Trucks

As a last tip, when on the road, steer clear from cargo trucks that transport sand or gravel as small stones at high speeds can fly onto your windshield and crack it. In this case, the best thing to do is to get it changed as soon as possible to avoid cracks getting bigger.

We hope these windshield care tips will help you keep your car in better shape for longer.
