I have 2 1/2 tint on my windows, and i have heard that if you use windex to clean them it will tear the tint up. Is this true? Someone help shoot :guns: down this myth.

it wont tear it up, but over time the ammonia that windex contains will sometimes discolor the tint. Look for window cleaner that is ammonia free.

Buy you some Stoners Glass Cleaner! Best shit out there. Advance Auto, Pep Boys, or Auto Zone usually sell it. You may find it at Wal-Mart.

You can still use windex, just make sure to find the one that says "aftermarket tint window safe" (or something like that) on the back on the bottle...

It will not affect the factory tinted glass. The ammonia in the windex is what kills the aftermarket tint.

Your factory tint is in the window itself...it isn't a film like the aftermarket stuff...
