    Cleaning window tints

    As title, what do you guys find the best. Looked at some of the glass cleaners and wipes but states not to be used on tints. Would it be applyed by cloth or tissue..

    Cheers

    Tints are easily damaged but in the years of working on cars either blue centre feed roll or a nice waffle towel like the meguiars water magnet ( no good for drying cars but great on glass ) with a decent spray glass cleaner like stoners original will do the trick.

    As scottbt said really. Any good quality liquid spray cleaner applied with a microfibre cloth/towel.
    Do NOT use any of the polish/cream type cleaners as they are slightly abrasive and will scratch the film.

    Would some household glass cleaner like Mr. Muscle be ok to use on tint film?

    Majority have some form of alchol, some have isopropanol some have equaivelants which helps with the supposed streak free finish, never the les, most spray/solvent glass cleaners are fine.
