I have limo tint on my SF and was wondering what I should use or if there were any considerations to take when cleaning it...and since I'm on topic of cleaning..what products Would you recommend to clean the interior..This is my first Vehicle with "soft rubber" interior and a nav screen..and heated steering wheel..and leather..did I mention I LOVE my SF!!!
anyways,any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
I have had tint on my vehicles for over 20 yrs, and each car had immaculate tint when I sold it.
Unless you smoke (which creates a nasty film on your windows), what works best is water...yes, just water. Take two (preferably lint free or close to) CLEAN cloths. Wet one so it is good and wet, but not dripping. Use it to wipe the tint gently full length up and down or side to side (stress gently because if there is any grit on that tint, you will create scratches), then use the clean dry cloth to wipe it clean and dry at the same time. The tint will be spotless and have a nice shiny reflection. I have tried "tint cleaner" and nothing works better than the method described above. Never, never use any glass cleaners...they could damage your tint over time. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
As a former owner of a mobile detailing business, I can first say to stay away from any products like armor-all, and others similar as they not only leave a build-up that is greasy, but some may also get on the windows(BAD). Personally, after washing and drying the exterior, then go over the car with quick-detailing spray with a microfiber cloth. Meguires, or Mothers are good When I finish, the detail cloth that I just used will be used to wipe down the dash, head-unit, and door panels. As far as leather goes, use a leather cleaner followed by a leather conditioner, but condition less often than you clean. As for the tinted windows, just stay away from windex, and other ammonia based window cleaners. Invisible glass is good, or you can make your own cleaner with filtered water and vinegar. Sorry, the ratio eludes me at the moment.
