Conversion Van Windows: Cleaning Tips

July 16th, 2013 by

Owning a conversion van can be a great luxury, especially on longer road trips and for larger families. With that said, owning one comes with a lot of responsibility! 

Whereas cleaning off the windows on a normal-sized vehicle is as easy as using some soap, water, and a rag; cleaning the large windows on a conversion van can often be a much more daunting task. If your conversion van windows are in need of a cleaning, then you may be wondering what the best way to go about cleaning your windows may be. Fortunately, the process does not have to be as difficult or time consuming as you may think.

The first thing you will want to do in order to reduce the amount of time required to clean your conversion van’s windows is to round up a few friends or family members to help you! Not only will this make the process go by more quickly, but it will also make it a bit more fun. What better way to bond with friends and family members than in the great outdoors, slaving over some car windows? In all seriousness, though, this can be a good time to catch up on each other’s lives.

There are some basic supplies you’ll want to have on hand when it comes to cleaning your conversion van’s windows. This includes not only terry cloth rags and soap, but squeegees, a bottle of your favorite glass cleaner, and a hose as well. Furthermore, it is a good idea to have some newspaper on hand. Believe it or not, newspaper works great for wiping down your van’s windows from the interior in a way that will not leave streaks or marks and will leave the windows shiny and clean.

Once you have all the supplies that you need, it is time to get started. Using soap and terry cloths, wipe down each window to remove any caked on dirt, debris, or even bugs. This is a necessary step in the process, as window cleaner alone cannot be trusted to get rid of all dirt and debris from your windows. Once the majority of the debris is removed from your windows, take a squeegee and dry each window with it, using long strokes to eliminate streaking. Finally, you should take a bottle of your favorite glass cleaner and spray down the interior and exterior side of each window. Wipe clean with a sheet of newspaper. When working inside the van, be sure to provide yourself with plenty of ventilation!

Overall, cleaning your conversion van windows may not be the most exciting chore in the world, but doing so will ensure that you have the best visibility on the road for a safe drive.
