Learn How To Properly Clean Your Windshield

If you are having trouble focusing on the road due to a cracked windshield, make sure you get your windshield repair in Chicago at Frank’s Auto Parts today. However, if your windshield is just dirty due to dirt, weather, or smudges, follow these steps to make sure you are properly maintaining and cleaning both the interior and exterior parts of your windshield.

Put Towels Down On The Dashboard

When you put towels down on the dash, you’re making sure to avoid chemical stains from the cleaners. Additionally, when you are using spray, make sure you spray your glass cleaner directly onto the towel, not the windshield.

Pick The Right Supplies

Choose a glass cleaner used specifically for vehicle glass—automotive glass cleaners are ammonia-free, making it safe for both you and your windshield. If you have tools meant for glass cleaners, use those too as it makes your job easier when it comes to reaching corners and the bottom of your windshield.

Clean The Inside and Outside

Wipe the inside windshield vertically and then horizontally to minimize the streaking. Start on one half and then work your way to the other. After the inside is complete, head over to the outside and lift the wipers out of the way. Spray the glass with enough cleaner and wipe thoroughly on both sides.

Use Microfiber Towels and Glass Treatment

Microfiber towels help wipe the glass clean and make it streak-free, so make sure you are using them instead of your everyday kitchen towel. When you’re finished with this process and the windshield is dry, apply an automotive glass treatment in overlapping circular motions to the windshield.

If your windshield is cracked, come to Frank’s Auto Glass for your windshield repair in Chicago and we will be happy to work with you and your vehicle.

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
