Can You Use Windex on Car Windows?

Some Goshen customers ask, “Can you use Windex on car windows safely?” Yes, of course, you can. However, there are a few things to remember while using it:

  • If you have tinted windows, you might want to proceed carefully. There isn’t any evidence that Windex with ammonia causes damage, especially to factory-tinted cars. However, if you have a third-party tint, you might want to skip using Windex just to be sure.
  • Also, if you opt to use Windex inside your Honda, be extra careful. The chemical compounds in Windex can discolor your leather seats permanently.
