How to Remove Cigarette Smoke From a Windshield

by Corey M. Mackenzie

Cigarette smoke quickly builds up inside a vehicle, leaving a hazy film on the interior side of the windshield. This haze is not only unattractive; it also reduces visibility through the windshield, which affects driving safety. Some glass cleaners won't cut through this haze very efficiently. Fortunately, you can make your own glass cleaner inexpensively at home. This cleaner will easily cut through the smoke film, making your windshield sparkle again.

Step 1

Fill a clean spray bottle halfway full of water.

Step 2

Fill up the spray bottle the rest of the way with white distilled vinegar.

Step 3

Shake the bottle gently to mix the water and vinegar together.

Step 4

Spray the interior side of the windshield with the vinegar and water solution.

Step 5

Scrape and wipe the windshield with a clean squeegee.

Step 6

Spray the interior windshield with the solution again.

Step 7

Wipe the windshield clean with soft towels.
