Cleaning Your Auto Glass From Water Spots


Getting rid of hard water spots can get quite challenging. If you are used to washing your car, you should have noticed it already. Sometimes it seems that no matter how effort you put into trying to wipe those spots out, they just don’t go away. Some of the hardest spots can be found in the glass of your auto. If you have ever wondered if it is possible to have a spot-free glass on your auto and want to know how to achieve good results, keep reading.

It is indeed possible to have a spot free-glass, you only have to put in some effort, and work smart. To help you in taking good care of your car and have a shining, spotless car, we gathered some tips for you. Make sure you read them carefully and, if you want to achieve great results, that you follow our advice.

First of all, you need to go through the material you usually use to clean your car. Both the cloth and the cleaning liquid you choose will have an impact on the results you’ll get.

Ensure you use microfiber cloths to wipe your glass out. Even if it might be a bit more expensive than other types of towels, they are the best for wiping your glass out. By using such material, you’ll prevent any residual particle to stick on your glass, as it could happen using regular or paper towels. Residual materials are one of the causes of hard spots on your car glass, so better avoid them!

Also, you need to make sure you’re using an ammonia-free cleaner, to remove the spots more efficiently and without risking to ruin your car. Not only that, but you should also check that you’re using an alcohol-free cleanser. Both ammonia or alcohol can damage the paint of your car if some of it falls on it. And that won’t look good!

If you are still using traditional Windex or other “classic” glass cleaner, you need to change that habit! Such products will only worsen the spot or they might leave behind some streaks. It is better to use higher-quality cleaners if you want to have a spotless car for the envy of your friends.

Once you’ve sprayed your car with some good quality cleaning liquid, that does not include alcohol or ammonia in its ingredients, use your microfiber cloth to wipe the glass off. Our recommendation for better results is to use two different cloths: one for up and down movements, and the other to wipe it from one side to the other. This way, you won’t risk leaving spots behind or to cause residuals to stick to the car glass.

At this stage, you might also want to consider applying Rain X to prevent rainwater from drying on your auto glass and cause ugly spots. If you don’t want to handle this yourself, you can call on an auto glass professional.

Even if those tips might sound trivial to you, following them will make a huge difference in the results you get when washing your car. What are you waiting for? You’ll never know until you try!
