Now that you have your car windows tinted, you will need to know how to care for them. Here are a few tips to follow after having your windows tinted.
Rolling windows down: We recommend that you leave your windows up for 48 hours (2 days) after they are tinted. This will allow the film time to adhere to the glass so it will not peel when it is finally rolled down.
Drying time: For the first few days after your windows are tinted they will be cloudy, hazy, and you may see little water pockets forming in the tint. This is normal! When windows are tinted, the squeegee can only remove a certain amount of the water from between the film, and the glass. As the film dries, the remaining water will form little pockets. These will simply evaporate and go away by themselves. The amount of time before your new tint will be totally dry is determined by the amount of sunlight it gets. If it’s cloudy and overcast outside, it will take longer, if it’s hot and sunny, then the film dries very quickly.
Cleaning: After your windows are tinted, you need to wait a couple of days to clean them. Basically, you do not want to risk pulling the tint loose, before it has a chance to dry. Once your vehicle has been tinted the windows will have been lightly wiped down, but will probably need a proper cleaning. A soft paper towel and any non-ammonia cleaner (do not use the blue “Windex with ammonia D”, or any blue colored cleaners because they usually have ammonia in them). You can use: Vinegar Windex (Green), or any of the citrus Windex’s,. There are other cleaners made specifically for tinted windows such as Eagle One’s 20/20. which are very good. In addition you can use soap and water, vinegar and water, or really anything without ammonia or abrasives.
