Glass cleaning can be a tricky task, let’s face it, it can be downright annoying. Small streaks here and there, getting in and out of the vehicle, etc. etc. So here are a couple tips that can make your glass cleaning a whole lot easier.
Glass Cleaning Towel – This is used for the initial clean. This has the perfect nap to get the grime off and leave you with a clean surface. However, using only this often leaves a few straggling streaks as the towel is not able to absorb the product fully before it begins to dry.
Waffle Weave Towel – This is your secret weapon. Since the Glass Cleaning Towel cannot absorb the product what would you use to fix that? Use a towel solely designed to absorb water! Simply use the Glass Cleaning Towel and then use the Waffle Weave Towel to quickly buff off the surface. This 1-2 punch will greatly reduce the amount of streaks left and most importantly reduce the time it takes you to clean the glass.
Do you hate cleaning interior windows? Yeah, so does everyone else. But, there are a few things you can do to make them a bit easier. First, don’t sit in the driver’s seat to clean the windshield. Sit in the passenger seat and place your left hand on the driver’s seat, lean over and use your right hand to clean the window. This will allow you to reach all the way into the corners without having the steering wheel in the way. Do it in sections (3-4), first using the Glass Cleaning Towel and quickly following it with the Waffle Weave Towel.
- Do not over saturate your towel. Streaks stem from product that dried before it was wiped away, so less is ALWAYS more.
- Spray your towel, NOT the window. Not only does it allow a more even distribution of product on the towel, but it will eliminate the issue of having product mist on your dash or other interior bits.
- Wipe the inside of the windows in one direction and the outside in the opposite (in a cross hatching pattern). This will allow you to see if the streaks are on the inside or the outside based on the direction of the streak (Yeah I know, changed my life too). I normally do the inside vertical as it is just easier on the windshield, but either way will work great.

Glass will never be perfect the first time all the time, the world is so cruel. However, using these tools, techniques and tips you will have the best chance and not only produce a better result, but produce it quicker.
