How to Clean Inside Car Windows

Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

A lot of drivers wonder, “Can you use Windex on car windows?” Yes, you can use Windex! However, when Windexing car windows, keep a few details in mind:

  • If you have tinted windows, Windex might not be the best idea. Despite there being no evidence that Windex with ammonia causes issues on factory-tinted car windows; if you’ve got a third-party tint, you might want to skip the Windex.
  • Be extra careful using Windex inside your vehicle. The chemicals could discolor your leather seats permanently.
