Remove the cloudy film from your windshield to help with glare
You might try and ignore it, or even squint through, but a dirty windscreen could cause you to miss something on the road.
Why does your car windscreen form a cloudy residue?
The oily haze that clogs up your windscreen comes from the use of glass cleaners, and the airborne contaminants from inside your car. Try using a good quality glass cleaner to clean away the spots and film from your windshield.
We are all used to seeing the foggy film during the cold winter months, but with the humidity in the air recently you may be seeing the film across your vision while driving. The air conditioning in your car isn’t just there to keep you cool, your car’s air conditioner can act as a dehumidifier helping to decrease the foggy film across the windscreen.
We’ve all tried rubbing the window with your sleeve or worse your hand on the glass which can smear the natural oils from your skin onto the windscreen making it even worse.
The best way to clean your interior windscreen.
For best results use a clean microfibre cloth and work in straight lines, spray the cloth instead of applying the spray straight to the window for a more even coverage. Some of the car window cleaners on the market have a built-in defogging ingredient to help create a barrier against residue from forming in the future.
