Removing Stains and Marks from Your Auto Glass

Stubborn stains and marks on windshields refuse to go away with gentle cleaning. A lot of times, people don’t pay much attention to these stains and continue driving. However, leaving these stains can make them harder to remove and become security hazards. According to studies, low visibility affects a driver’s behavior and driving pattern and can result in frustration and reckless driving. Auto glass cleaning should be left to professionals, but if you’re in a fix and require urgent cleaning, here are a few ways you can easily remove stubborn auto glass stains from your car’s windshield and windows.


Toothpaste is useful for cleaning glass and other shiny surfaces. If the stain is small, directly apply toothpaste to it. If the stains are all over the windshield, you can make a mixture of toothpaste and water and apply it to the windshield. Clean the toothpaste with a microfiber cloth. Toothpaste helps avoid scratches on the windshield and is one of the best DIY cleaning materials you can use.

Dilute the Stain with Vinegar

Spots on the windshield are often caused by the acidic water in the environment or the debris mixed with that water. Simply cleaning it with water and cloth may not remove the stain, which is why you need to dilute it with vinegar first. Pour some vinegar in a spray bottle and mix it with water to make it a little less concentrated. Spray the vinegar and water mixture on the stains. Gently clean the stains off after a few minutes of spraying the mixture.

Use Lemon Juice

Another DIY cleaning technique for stubborn windshield stains is to squeeze some lemon juice on the stains and try cleaning them off. Lemon juice is acidic and has antibacterial properties, and if the stain is alkaline, it will be removed easily. Bottled lemon juice has added preservatives and other ingredients, which may make it ineffective. Try squeezing fresh lemon juice on the stains for better results.
