Cleaning Tinted Windows....?
 
I just got my SVT focus and it needs a good cleaning on the inside. It's got tint all the way around. Is it safe to use a good window cleaning product (invisible glass) on the interior side of a tinted window, or will it damage my tint?

Anything is safe as long as it doesn't have ammonia in it...I know Windex makes an ammonia-free auto glass cleaner that's supposed to be tint-safe.

most glass cleaner that is tint safe will say it on the bottle

Ammonia Free and your good to go...

The best stuff I found I made. SOmeone on here posted the "recipe" and it works beatiful.
Fill a spray bottle with:
- 2-4 drops of dish soap
- 3-4 tablespoons of rubbing alchohol
-fill rest of bottle with water
Lightly mix the concoction everytime you use it. Its way cheap, and works just as good if not better than anything you can buy at hte store. I prefer using it at the place I work on the windows cause the Windex leaves a nasty smear.

Use newspaper and it won't streak or smear

Eagle One 20/20 window cleaner with a terry cloth towel. You will never see better results.

The company I work for buys about $20,000 of canned air a year from Stoner. They make Invisible Glass and many other cleaners, greases etc.

Let me tell you, I called them up and said "Hey can I get a sample kit or whatever since we buy so much stuff"

Boom, I got a cool 3-pack of Invisible Glass w/some of their towels and some coupons. That stuff is great, I'm going to try some of their other products too.
