Caring for your glass is not only important for aesthetics but it’s also critical for driving safely. On top of dirt and grime buildup, if too much glass cleaner is left on the glass you can expect to see streaking and hazing which can be a detriment to your vision. James Melfi highlights his 2 step method for streak free glass cleaning in this awesome video!

Hey, James with Detailed Image. Cleaning the inside of your window is one of the most frustrating parts of your detailing regimen. We have all had that struggle with trying to get a haze and streak free finish. After many years of trial and error, I now have a two-step method on how to properly clean your glass. Spray the glass cleaner liberally onto a glass specific short nap towel, wipe in overlapping passes being mindful of the all those corners. In this first step, we are just concentrating on removing the dirt from the glass. Don’t worry about streaks, we are just trying to get the glass clean. With the glass slightly damp from the previous step, grab a longer nap microfiber towel and wipe the glass to reveal the streak-free finish. Inspect the glass within a LED light and touch up as needed.

    I spray the glass then remove it with a short nap glass cleaning microfiber towel. I don’t go over it with a long nap MF towel. I am going to try your method next time I clean my glass. The windshield and rear window glass on the inside is the most difficult to remove due to the film that builds up on it. I will try this method on those as well. Thanks.

    Great tip with using a led light to inspect your work. Will have to give this a try. Thanks!

    Finally someone that doesn’t use the term ‘less is more’ when it comes to cleaning glass. Sure you can use the ‘less is more’ method if the inside/outside glass is basically clean anyways, but not if it’s actually dirty glass. Thanks for stepping away from the less is more crowd and actually showing people the best way to clean glass.

      So glad you liked the video Brian, glass cleaning has never been a fun activity for me and this process has reduced the head ache and made glass cleaning quick and simple.
