How to clean the interior of a car’s windshield

The windshield dirty are not only ugly but also jeopardize the safety to driving. It is easy to remember to clean the outside of the windshield and the windscreen-cleaning fluids are responsible for keeping it clean between a deeper cleaning and another.

The interior of the windshield, however, is a completely different thing, and drivers often forget the ease with which they can get dirty and interfere with their safety. While cleaning the outside of the windshield is easier than cleaning the interior, due to the curvature of the glass and the location of the board in the middle, with a little patience and preparation the interior can stay as bright as the outside.


  1. Clean the entire interior of the windshield with dry paper towels. This will remove dust and dirt and facilitate wet cleaning.
  2. Spray the corners and edges of the windshield with a car glass cleaner. Make sure to spray abundantly, if you spray little amount will not work.
  3. First, clean the corners and edges with a microfiber glass towel, since this is how the largest amount of earth gets together. Cleaning these areas first prevents dust and debris from spreading on the rest of the windshield.
  4. Spray half of the windshield with the glass cleaner. Clean that half with a microfiber towel doing circular movements.
  5. Dry the glass and polish it with a new microfiber towel.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other half of the windshield, using new towels.

Tips and warnings

  • Always use clean towels to avoid spreading dirt or dirt on the glass. This prevents streaks or scratches. In cold or hot temperatures, enter the car in the garage, if possible, so that the glass cools or warms a little before cleaning. Clean the board before cleaning the inside of the glass. The airflow from the fans, the air conditioning and the outside breezes blow the dust from the dashboard to the windshield.
  • Use only specific cleaners for automotive glasses. According to Armor All and, other types of cleaners can contain ammonia and damage the surfaces of some cars.
