The windshield tends to be one of the dirtiest places on a person’s car and one of the most important to keep clean. Every time the weather changes or an insect collides with your windshield, you’ll find yourself having to wash your windshield again and again. But some cleaning methods are more effective than others. You shouldn’t be driving around with distracting stains and streaks across your windshield. Use these windshield cleaning tips to make sure you always have a clear view of the road.

Take Care of Your Blades

Don’t forget to wipe down your blades. Your windshield wipers should be there to help you keep your windshield clean, but they can’t do their job if they’re a part of the problem. Take a moment to wipe off both sides of your blades gently, so they can get back to keeping your windshield streak-free.

Use a Clean, Microfiber Cloth

If you want to keep the glass clean, use a microfiber cloth. It’s best to only use that cloth on the windshield. If you use the same cloth on multiple parts of your vehicle, it’s going to spread dust and dirt over different surfaces. The microfibers also help lock in dust and dirt instead of just pushing it around.

It’s All in the Wrists

While you might be tempted to scrub your windshield as fast as possible furiously, but it pays to take your time when cleaning such an important part of your vehicle. Use a small circular motion when cleaning your windshield to prevent streaks and small clumps of dirt around the edges of the glass. Take your time as if you were polishing your vehicle. If you go too fast, you’ll just have to stare at those unsightly streaks every time you get behind the wheel.
