Taking your car through an automatic car wash can make your vehicle sparkle. It can also leave a film of wax on your cars windshield. Using your wipers to try to remove this wax can leave an unpleasant film on the wipers, making things even worse. Fortunately, you can easily remove wax from your cars windshield.
Things You'll Need
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton balls
Clean the car windshield with Coca-Cola. You will want to saturate a clean towel with Coca-Cola.
Work the Coca-Cola over the windshield in a circular motion. The acid found in the cola will dissolve the wax from your windshield.
Dry your windshield with a clean towel. If the windshield still feels a bit sticky, wash with a crumpled newspaper saturated with glass cleaner.
Treat the windshield wipers with cotton balls soaked in rubbing alcohol. Use the cotton balls to remove wax from the wiper blades.
Tips & Warnings
- Do not try to scrape the wax off your car with a razor, as you may scratch the windshield wiper.
