Warning: Avoid Ammonia to Protect Your Car Window Tint

Ammonia can have a negative effect on tinted windows. Tinted windows are created by applying a thin film to the interior surface of the window. This film is typically made of polyester, which can be damaged by ammonia-based cleaning products. It is imperative to avoid ammonia to protect your car window tint.

When ammonia comes into contact with the tinted film, it can cause it to become cloudy, bubbled, or discolored. This will eventually distort the view through the window and can be difficult to fix. In some cases, the film may need to be replaced entirely.

To avoid damaging your tinted windows, it's best to use a cleaning product that is specifically designed for use on tinted windows. These products are typically ammonia-free and will not harm the tinted film.

Be sure to avoid using any abrasive materials, such as paper towels or scouring pads, as these can also damage the tinted film.

If you do accidentally use an ammonia-based cleaning product on your tinted windows, you should rinse the window thoroughly with clean water as soon as possible. This may help to remove some of the ammonia and reduce the amount of damage to the tinted film. However, if the damage is extensive, you may still need to replace the film.
