It’s something we do so often without thinking—clean our car’s glass, be it the windshield, windows, or rearview. A good wash keeps our automobile glistening, and healthy, even after a messy week. But many car owners don’t know that there’s a right and wrong way to cleaning automobile glass; a distinction that can make all the difference. And here at ProCurve Glass Design, Inc. we want to make sure your car is getting the best care it can get.
First things first, you’re going to want to choose the right cleaner.
You’ll want to avoid any cleaners that contain ammonia, alcohol or other toxic-fume releases, and chemicals that can hurt the environment. These can seriously damage the tints on your car, and the interior.
Then, there’s the towel.
This might not seem relevant, but a towel’s material—the microfiber count, and electrostatic charge—is incredibly important to your car’s upkeep. Shoot for a 300 GSM count, and one with a good electrostatic charge. But leave your old t-shirt or rag at home; this will only scratch your car, not help it.
Cleaner and towel in hand, be sure to clean in a systematic fashion.
Side to side first, and then up and down to clear what’s left. This will steer clear of streaks, and leave no part of the glass untouched. And remember, if it’s very hot out, or really sunny, wait a bit—this will cause the cleaner to evaporate, leaving behind residue that’s a pain to get off.
Last but not least, suit up.
Our specially-designed automotive curved glass is made to last, with strength that can endure any scratches or cracks that small rocks and debris can throw at it. That way, you’re not wasting time replacing your glass each and every year. Call ProCurve Glass Design Inc. at 215-441-9101 today with any questions you may have!
