Cars have become part and parcel of our life. They help take the kids to school, get us to work, and facilitate our day to day transportation needs. You should take care of your car at all times by checking the air pressure, fluid levels, and getting it serviced in a timely manner. Most people overlook the maintenance of the car windows. Here are 5 ways that you can keep your car windows in excellent condition.
Keeping The Windows Clean
The car windshield needs to be clean at all times. In fact, quality of vision is very important to the driver. The best way to keep the windshield clean is to use a baby wipe to clean both inside and outside of the glass. It will ensure a spotless, streak-free clean at all times. Don’t use paper towels to clean the glass as it can leave bits of paper on the glass. You can also use a clean microfiber cloth to clean the outside of the glass. An old-fashioned squeegee mop with warm water and some detergent is another option to clean the glass.
Taking Care Of The Wipers
Caring for the wipers is as important as cleaning the windscreen and windows of the car. Clean the wipers whenever you clean the windshield of the car. A slightly dampened cloth is the best to clean the blades of the wipers. It will remove grime and dirt build-ups. It will help cut out the annoying squeak caused by dirty blades. You can keep the windshield in a top-notch condition that way.
Getting Rid Of Water Spots
Water spots will last for a few days after you wash the car. These spots can cause damage to the glass when left untreated. Use a high-quality glass polish to clear out these water spots. Make sure to apply the polish with an approved applicator. Use a microfiber cloth to remove any excess polish.
Dealing With A Crack Or Chip
The windshield is exposed to gravel, rocks, debris, and other environmental hazards when driving. These hazards can result in chips and cracks on the windshield.

Take your car to a professional windshield repair service to fix the problem before it worsens. It can prolong the lifespan of the windscreen of your car.
Caring For The Rear Windscreen
