Traveling in a car for hours on end with children can often leave your car in shambles when you arrive at your destination. If your car windows became a causality of the trip, there is no need to break down in a panic attack right away. Stickers, crayon marks, and even drawings with permanent markers can all be removed with a few simple household products and a bit of elbow grease. Use the following guide to learn how to repair your windows so that they look as good as new and so you can actually enjoy your vacation instead of worrying about your car windows.
When stickers stick to a window, the adhesive seems to grip the glass very well, making them difficult to peel off with your bare hands. Go into your beach bag and pull out your bottle of sunscreen. Saturate the stickers with the sunscreen and leave it in place for ten minutes. The sunscreen will break down the adhesive and allow you to easily scrub the stickers from the windows.
Crayon marks are tricky to remove because they seem to smudge and spread when you try to get them off of the glass surface. Go to a local restaurant or search through your glove box to find a few alcohol wipes that you are often given to clean your hands before you eat. Open the wipe and use it to scrub the marks from the window. It will take a bit of elbow grease, but the marks should come off with the alcohol wipe and hard rubbing.
Permanent Marker Marks
Permanent marker is designed to stay put forever, but that doesn't have to be the case. Go into your purse or beach bag and pull out your bottle of hand sanitizer. The ingredients in hand sanitizer will break down the marker marks at a chemical level so that you can easily wipe the glass clean. Apply the sanitizer to a rag and wipe away the marks.
These simple methods for cleaning your auto glass can be done in a matter of minutes and with items commonly found in your car or in your beach bag. This allows you to get back to your vacation sooner and restore your car to its original beauty quickly and easily. You don't have to fear the damage your kids can do.
