How To Clean Your Tinted Windows

Posted on Jul 16, 2019

Handprints, smudges, grease, dirt, dust, and general muck can build up on your tinted glass surfaces. But the proper way to clean your tinted windows is not so simple. Just buying a commercial glass cleaner can actually cause even more damage and lessen the tinting’s lifespan and effectiveness. Learn the correct methods for safely cleaning and maintaining your tinted windows in your home, office, or car.

Try these cleaning tips for streak-free, crystal clear, tinted windows:

#1 Make your own cleaning solution

For decades we have been cleaning glass surfaces and windows with Ammonia-based cleaners. But cleaning your tinted windows with these cleaners will cause more harm than good. Ammonia has harsh elements that will over time, erode the tinted surface and break down the adhesive layers.

Homemade tinted window solution

  • Empty Spray Bottle
  • A few drops of gentle dish detergent or baby soap
  • 2 tablespoons of 91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol
  • Distilled Water

Combine the soap and rubbing alcohol and then fill the spray bottle up with the distilled water.

#2 Avoid using newspaper and paper towelsCleaning Auto Window Tint | All Pro Window Tinting

Grabbing a sheet of newspaper or a few paper towels is certainly the quickest and easiest way to wipe your tinted windows. But both can leave lint, streaks, and even scratch the tinted film. Instead, use a soft micro-fiber cloth made for glass cleaning. These can be found in any home improvement or hardware store and are readily available online.

#3 Wait before cleaning newly installed window tint

Your window tint film needs at least a week to cure and settle on the glass before you should attempt cleaning them.
