How to Safely Clean Window Tint Film

Whether it's smudges from the kid's finders or the dog's nose on the patio door, windows in our home and car can be a challenge to keep clean. If you have "tinted windows" there are some precautions you wish to take.

Most window films are manufactured with a protective coating to prevent scratches in the film. When cared for properly, this coating will last the lifetime of the film. However, constant use of harsh chemicals, like ammonia, could have a negative effect on this coating over time. Here are some simple suggestions that will make your new window tinting film looking great for years to come.

  • Avoid ammonia based cleaners
  • Do not use scrub pads
  • Clean when glass is cool
A mild soap and water solution will work well. Use only about a tea spoon of dish soap in a 32 oz. spray bottle filled with water. Cleaning may be done with a squeegee or micro fiber cloths. Micro fibers will not streak like paper towels. If you prefer a commercial glass cleaner, I like Sprayway. This ammonia free cleaner works awesome on window tint and mirrors. Sprayway is available in most grocery stores as well as the big box stores.

Should you have your windows professionally cleaned, be sure to inform them that you have window film on your windows. They will know what to do. Hopefully..........
