Tinted car windows add a certain glamour to a street performance car in Edmonds. However, the tint also requires specific regular maintenance. Otherwise, bubbles will start to form.
Washing Tinted Car Windows the Right Way
The two materials you need are a microfiber cloth and ammonia-free soap mixed with water. We suggest that you wash the windows last when washing your car, and avoid washing the edges of the window. Water and soap can seep between the glass and tint, leading to the dreaded bubbles. If bubbles do form, force the air out of the bubble by pushing the air out using a credit card or similar object.
Wipe in a vertical direction across the entire window and again horizontally. Do the same when you’re wiping the window dry with a dry microfiber cloth. If streaks remain, repeat the process. You may also have to repeat the process once or twice for grimy areas.
Keep in mind that these tips apply to the side of the window that the tint is applied on. This is usually the interior side. This portion of the cleaning can be done as part of an interior vehicle detailing.
Hand Washing is Best
We recommend a car wash by hand rather than an automated car wash if you have tinted windows. The washer in an automated car wash may include low-quality abrasive soap or wipers with an abrasive surface. Even if the tint is in the interior, abrasive material isn’t good for any part of the vehicle.
