Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

So, can you use Windex on car windows? The answer is almost always yes. On vehicles with tinted windows, Windex can cause damage. However, there is no evidence that the ammonia in Windex will cause damage to window tints done by the factory. It is definitely not recommended to use Windex on tint installed by a third party. Windex is also known to leave streaks if not cleaned properly. Check out our guide below to learn how to clean a car windshield inside by doing more than just spraying the window and wiping it down.

When it comes to the best method on learning how to clean inside car windows, we believe the following steps will get your windows the clean they need:

  1. Wipe the windshield down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth to remove any dirt.
  2. Use another cloth to apply a bit of rubbing alcohol in order to remove any grease from the glass.
