The golden rule for any tinted windows – never use windex!
What can I use?
- Any kind of PH Neutral soap or dish washing liquid diluted in water about 1:100 soap:water
- Lambswool window cleaning mitts
- Cotton rags
- Rubber bladed squeegees
- Microfibre cloths
- Wet chamois (fresh water)
What can’t I use?
- Any other products containing ammonia (Jif, Ajax, Spray’n’Wipe etc)
- Metal blades (scrapers etc)
- Steel wool
- Any abraisives
Remember, window films are plastic, similar in construction to sunglasses. They have a polished surface, so they are smoother than glass, and cleaning requires much less elbow grease than glass itself.
Take a wet chamois, or soapy sponge, and wipe down the surface of the film. Once it’s looking clean, take a rubber squeegee and wipe the surface clean of suds and water. Alternately, use cotton or microfibre cloth to wipe, dry and remove streaks for the film… And that’s it!
Stick to these instructions and you will find your tinted windows will look crystal clear for years to come.
