Are you having difficulty seeing the road? You need to clean your windshield if grease or grime is blocking your vision. A windshield clean every two weeks will allow you to see more clearly and prevent accidents. This helps your defroster work more efficiently by removing condensation or ‘fog, which sticks more easily to dirty windshield surfaces.
How does my windshield get so gross?
There are many reasons your car’s windshield might get stained, such as dog or child’s noses, fingerprints, smog and smoking, dirt and dust from traffic, salt and other environmental contaminants. One reason is car off-gassing. The “new car smell” comes from various vinyl and plastic components. They eventually get trapped in the car and create an oily residue. The windshield, which is usually perfectly angled, captures most of this oily residue. This issue can be worsened if oily cleaners are used on the dashboard. They evaporate and form a film that coats the glass further, especially in hot humid weather.

Ensure Your Sparkling Windows Last
Once your windshield has been cleaned, keep it clean. This helps keep your car cooler and gives gases a way out. You should park your car in shaded/sheltered areas to keep it cool, such as your garage. Cracking the windows of your car can prevent off gassing and the buildup in contaminants. However, this is not possible on rainy days.
