How to Clean Your Car Windscreen

Windscreens play an important role in our cars – enabling you to see where you’re going and keeping you protected from hazards on the road. Cleaning a car windscreen is therefore an essential task for all drivers throughout the year. 

Our
guide below takes you through how to clean inside windscreens and outside. Take
a look out our range of external
and internal cleaning products to prepare yourself for tackling the
toughest windscreen grime. 

Begin With A Wash 

Start
by giving your windscreen a wash with soapy water, cleaning with a soft cloth
or squeegee as you go; this will begin to remove the top layer
of dirt from your windscreen. Ensure the wipers are lifted up and pointed away
from the glass as you clean. Wipe in small, circular movements to avoid
brushing dirt away from you. 

Once
the dirty water has been washed away, gently apply rubbing alcohol or baking
soda onto your wipers, as this helps to clean them if especially dirty. 

Deep Clean 

To
clear away the toughest marks, use glass
cleaner and a microfibre cloth. Compared to a standard cloth, microfibres
have much thinner strands, giving them a wider surface area to capture dirt. 

A
small amount of white vinegar can also break through stubborn grime. Mix it
with half a litre of water to create a potent cleaning solution. 

Clean The Inside 

Now
that the outside of your wind screen is clear, it’s time to clean the inside.
Take your glass cleaner and spray the inside screen, wiping with the microfibre
cloth in circular motions. Ensure the cloth is clean before tackling the
inside, as you may transfer dirt from cleaning the outside screen. 

For
marks left by phone holster sucker pads, rubbing alcohol will remove them in
seconds. Use only a minimal amount to avoid any smearing. 

Future Cleaning Tips 

There
are steps you can take to keep your car windscreen clean over time. These
include: 

  • Always
    keeping your wiper fluid topped up 
  • Store
    a cloth and cleaning fluid in your car, should you need to clean the
    windscreens in an emergency 
  • Wipes
    are your friend. Consider having a pack of glass
    wipes to hand, so you can quickly remove dirt or other stains which may
    impede your view during a journey

Cleaning the windscreens is just one part of
your car’s overall maintenance. Checking brakes is another task that, with the
proper knowledge, you can diagnose and potentially fix yourself. For
