Putting your Car Polishing Kit to WorkFebruary 9, 2018
A lick and a spit might give your windows and mirrors the effect of seeming clean, but there are
certain rules when it comes to taking proper care of your vehicle’s glass. The car wash products
you decide to use could end up ruining a window’s tint and discoloring surrounding surfaces, or
giving you a showroom shine that turns heads. We think it’s obvious the outcome you would
like, and so here are those rules we mentioned…
The Product Firstly, no ammonia. This aggressive chemical strips window tints and will damage surrounding
surfaces. Mothers® Speed Foaming Glass & Screen Cleaner is mild but effective. The perfect
choice. It cuts through grime, dirt, bugs, and bird poop like it’s nobody’s business. It’s free from
ammonia, safe to use on tinted surfaces, and won’t drip or streak – a true celebrity among
waterless car wash products.
The Cloth We can admire the manly man in everyone, but not even a caveman would use paper towels on
his windows. If he had them. A decent car cleaning cloth is the only option here. Microfiber or
100% cotton. That’s it. No compromise. The interior tint is sensitive and should be handled like
a baby to avoid scratches.
Wrap your cloth around the end of a paint stick, spritz with interior car wash product, and
tackle hard-to- reach corners of the windshield.
The Technique Instead of spraying the entire glass, and being left to worry about even distribution and
premature drying, apply the spray to your cleaning cloth. This way you will be able to achieve a
proper clean without the pressure of watching product dry on another section before you’ve
finished the one you’re currently on.
Once you’ve finished the entire glass, take a clean cotton towel and go over it one more time.
This will get rid of whatever streaks may have been left from the initial clean, and that a used
towel won’t be able to eradicate.
Bonus: Removing Water Spots Exterior glass doesn’t have much protection from the elements, so when water sits on it for
extended periods, spots develop that are impossible to remove with regular car wash products.
Mothers® Water Spot Remover is specially formulated to do what few products can, and
acting in much the same way as car polish, it will remove water spots from exterior glass or at
the very least, reduce the sight of them.
