How do I get streak-free car windows?
I like to keep my windows clean, but when I wash them I get streaks. What’s the best way to get streak-free car windows?
Streaks are a frustrating part of window washing. Luckily, you can minimize streaks by parking your car in a shaded area when you wash them! If that doesn’t work, you can follow these steps to get streak free car windows:
- Mix equal parts of rubbing alcohol and water together in a spray bottle with a capful of white vinegar.
- Lightly shake the bottle to mix it.
- Rinse your windows with water.
- Spray them with your homemade cleaning solution.
- Immediately wipe them clean with a microfiber cloth.
- As you clean each window, start wiping from the top and working down.
Once your windows dry, they should be streak-free! While streaking can be difficult to avoid, you’ll get better at reducing the streaks as you practice. Keep trying your best, and you’ll get better in no time!
