These tips are especially useful in the rainy season.
As much as we are excellent drivers, it would not do any good to be an ace at the wheel in case there is no excellent visibility through the windshield and the rest of the windows of the car. Keep in mind that 90% of the information we receive when driving reaches the brain through sight.
In this situation, it is extremely important that the glasses of the vehicle are clean to the extent possible. Also, it is vital that the windshield wipers work perfectly and that the water tank of them never lacks water.
The terrible mosquitoes
It is very common that when travelling on the road the insects end up stamped against the windshield, so there is to clean them continuously so as not to compromise visibility or damage the windshield wipers. Here is a clear example of why we should have enough liquid in the tank because when we go and an insect hits the glass, it can leave a large stain that makes our visibility difficult. If at that time we do not carry liquid in the tank, the wipers will only expand the stain and we will see even less, creating a dangerous situation.
Another point to consider is that when using the windshield wipers with water when we carry the sun face, we will see almost nothing for a few seconds by the effect of lightning on the liquid and dirt.
On the other hand, although it may seem that an occasional rain serves to clean the windshield, the truth is that in many cases a rain discharges only dirtier the front glass of the vehicle, especially if the clouds are also loaded with dust. If, in addition, we use windshield wipers when the moon is not clean at all, we will spread that dirt.
Once at home, we can moisten a cloth with water and some soap or household cleaning product, and let it act during the night: cleaning the windshield the next day will be much easier with the remains already softened.
Dust and sand
Use brushes with soft bristles or, failing that, a soft cloth with which you can apply pressure without damaging the glass, is essential for a good cleaning. For the windshield, you can use a bit of baking soda in a microfiber cloth in the case of very sharp spots.
Another great enemy is dust and sand. In general, dryness and high temperatures cause more dust and sand to rise in the environment. In addition, the cracks of the asphalt are dilated by heat and dust accumulates in them. In its passage cars raise that grit, part of which ends on the windshield.
In these scenarios, you do not have to activate the windshield wipers, which could damage and scratch the windows. Here the ideal would be to clean the car with air and water pressure or carry a carafe filled with water, to remove most of the sand crystals and be able to drive safely before cleaning the car in depth.
