Lemon Juice and Water
If you love the fresh, clean scent of lemons, this one’s for you.
Mix equal parts lemon juice and water in a spray bottle and use it to clean your windows and mirrors. The acidity of the lemon juice will help to cut through grime and leave a refreshing scent behind.
Rubbing Alcohol and Water
Rubbing alcohol is a great cleaner for car windows and mirrors.
Mix equal parts rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle, spritz onto your windows and mirrors and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. The alcohol will help to remove streaks and leave your windows crystal clear.
Before using any of these natural cleaning methods on your car windows and mirrors, be sure to test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure that the product does not damage the surface.
Additionally, be sure to use a microfiber cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the surface of your windows and mirrors.
When to Clean Your Car Windows and Mirrors
It is generally recommended to clean your car windows and mirrors at least once a month, or more frequently if you live in an area with heavy traffic or pollution.
Additionally, it is a good idea to clean your windows and mirrors any time they become excessively dirty or obscured, as dirty windows and mirrors can obstruct your view while driving and decrease safety.
