Wash your car once you're back home? Uhhh…. You are worried that you might damage the tint while washing the car. That's when you looked for answers on Google, right? Don't worry! We'll answer this in detail so that you know when it is safe to wash your car after getting the windows tinted.
It is easy to forget to ask your car window tinting service provider about the aftercare. You may not know the actual process behind tinting the windows, hence the uncertainty when it comes to cleaning them.
Well, Can I Wash My Car the Same Day?The answer to this question is yes! Yes, you can go ahead and wash your car on the same day. Yes, the windows too. But, here's the catch: you can wash the windows from the outside only. You can’t clean them from the inside because that's where the tinting film has been applied. That's how it survives for this long!
No weather, kids (not your own, yours will get to sit in the car and can do whatever they want!), pets (again, not your own!), and grumpy teens on the sidewalks will be able to cause them damage because the film is safely tucked inside the car and protected from the outside elements.
How Do I Clean the Windows Then? After washing the car's exterior, you might be wondering when and how you will be able to clean the windows, if at all? You will be rightly worried because you don't want to do anything that would potentially cause damage to the film.
Step 1Cleaning the interior of the windows is actually quite easy. Window cleaners are a no-no because harsh chemicals will damage the tint. Take a soft cloth and carefully remove dirt from the glass.
Step 2Next, gently wipe the window with a clean, damp sponge to remove any additional dirt. Wash the sponge in between cleanings if it gets too dirty.
Step 3Then, take a clean sponge, dip it in a mild soap solution and wipe the first window. The soap might dry on the film and leave spots, so wipe the windows one by one.
Step 4Finish cleaning by using a clean and soap-free sponge to wipe the window. Dry completely with a soft, clean towel. Use a top to bottom motion to avoid leaving streaks or spots.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the rest of the windows.
When Can I Roll the Windows Down?You may be tempted to roll down the windows while the tint is fresh, but if you do it, there's a high chance that the coating would peel off, leaving a complete mess behind. Let them stay shut for at least 3 to 4 days after getting the tint, giving it time to dry thoroughly.
Tinting the windows is a significant investment. This easy aftercare will keep the tint intact for long!
