Cars that sit in the hot sun will have the interior heat up dramatically. Plastic parts in the interior have whats called plasticisers added to keep them from cracking. In a hot interior, the plastic releases a vapor known as plasticiser vapor. This vapor creates a film on the inside of glass windows. To keep this to a minimum, periodically wipe down all interior dash, doors, etc. with a mild soap and water solution. Dip your micro-fiber towel, or other clean rag, in solution....wring out and wipe down. See my article on creating a simple and cheap glass cleaner to learn the best way to get rid of this film on inside of front windshield.

Bugs on your car contain acid which will etch into your car's paint system if not removed in a reasonable amount of time. Meltdown bug softener and dissolver is one quick and safe method, and reduces scratching paint due to hard scrubbing. Spray Meltdown on a soft cloth and be amazed how easily and quickly bugs are removed. The other method would be to spray Meltdown on  the affected area, let stand for 2 minuntes, then wipe and rinse when washing your car. Apply Meltdown, as in all auto-cleaning products, on a cool surface. Take Meltdown on a road trip and periodically remove Bugs to prevent etching. Meltdown works great on RV'S. If RV is oxidized, area sprayed may lighten if it sits on surface too long. This means lightened area is actually clean. Dirt gets embedded in the paint or gelcoat. All that happened is Meltdown cleaned the embedded dirt. Meltdown can be purchased here.  

I hope my site and Meltdown are helpful to you.  Please leave a comment and let me know!

Use a new spray bottle. Purchase" Ethyl Alcohol" from a drug store, not Isopropyl Alcohol! Pour about 1-2 Tbls of alcohol in sprayer, then fill bottle with distilled water. This formula is safe for tinted windows.  Contrast this with products that contain ammonia which are not safe for tinted windows! Always use a clean, lint-free cloth, such as a micro-soft towel. Always wash window towels separate from other towels. Fold micro-fiber towel in half then in half again. Spray window and wipe entire section, then turn over towel and re-wipe. This removes any left over residue on the surface. Repeat this process for each window, always using 1st side of cloth to clean and the 2nd clean dry side of cloth to polish. As the towel gets dirty, unfold towel to the other clean sides and repeat process.  This Window Cleaner is an excellent way to remove the plasticiser vapor on inside of front windshield... as explained in this blog article.  Also check out Meltdown Bug Remover .
