Never use home glass cleaner on your windshield.
If you think the standard Windex is all you need for a shiny, clear windshield – think again.
Most home glass cleaners use ammonia as a chief cleaning agent. Over time, ammonia will break down the heating elements in your rear windshield. The thin red lines you see are actually small wires designed to bring heat to your windshield to assist with defrosting.
It is much safer to use window cleaner designed for automotive glass.
