How do I get fingerprints off my car windows?

You know how sometimes you don’t notice how dirty something is until you see it in a certain light? Like a laptop screen? Yeah, that’s my car. I’ve got three kids. I never looked at the back windows until recently. It looks like during snack time, they just wipe their hands on the windows. How do I clean the windows and get rid of all these dirty little fingerprints?

Yes, I have also been completely shamed by not noticing how dirty my computer screen is until I watch a movie. So, you are not alone. But don’t worry—this is an easy fix.
To get fingerprints off car windows, you can use a window cleaner specifically made for cars and a soft microfiber cloth.
I recommend an auto glass cleaner because it’s formulated specifically for cars and can help if you’ve tinted those back windows to protect your kids from UV rays. It won’t eat through any protection on the glass.
You’ll want a soft microfiber cloth for the same reason a person shouldn’t clean their glasses with their jeans—a rougher quality of fabric can scratch up the glass.
Another way to help ensure your family is safe and comfortable on the road is roadside assistance. You can get a membership through Jerry for as low as $4.16 a month and enjoy benefits like jumpstarts, lockout service, key replacement, and towing.
