Keep Your Windshield Clean Both Inside And Out…

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Most cars are now equipped with windshield washer fluid dispensers on their wipers that allow for a quick cleaning of the exterior of the glass while driving. It’s a very convenient feature, especially for those that are old enough to remember when using a squeegee was the only option. However, there are examples when using this feature actually makes the visibility of the windshield worse. And sometimes a windshield’s lack of clarity is because the interior, not the exterior, needs to be cleaned.

It’s an area of the car that is often overlooked when getting cleaned but it shouldn’t be. Having a windshield that isn’t completely clear or doesn’t provide a totally unobstructed view is something all drivers should avoid. When there’s a film on the inside of the windshield, it can give off a glare or make the glass cloudy, particularly at night when street lamps and headlights are being used.

If you’re going to clean the interior windshield of your car, be sure to use a cleaning agent that is intended for glass, otherwise you could be making the problem worse by leaving streaks or a residue behind. This should become a standard step in your car cleaning process, which you should be going through on a regular basis if you’re not already. A cleaner car is a safer car and safety should be the top priority whenever someone gets behind the wheel. Other possible hindrances to your view while driving should be taken into account, such as fogging or a chip that can lead to even worse cracking.
