Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! This week, we’re going to focus on a couple of neat technique tips. Because you may have all the gear and it may be doing just fine, but there are always tricks you can use to push your product or accessory that bit further and turn fine into awesome.
One such example involves your glass – your windows and your windshield. Now, a good glass cleaner will ensure that any dirt is gone, and it has the potential to remove streaks and smudges from your glass – but that’s all it is: potential. It is notoriously difficult to clean every inch of glass without either leaving smudges or streaks during the drying process. Now, at Proje’, we have worked to bring you a glass cleaner specially designed to rid you of these issues. Just like other Proje’ products, Genesis Glass Cleaner breaks down dirt as soon as it touches the surface, leaving you free to smoothly wipe your glass clean. Also, because it’s ammonia-free and contains no airborne chemicals, it’s safe to use on the enclosed space of your auto interior. The versatility of our class cleaner means that you can use it on windows, windscreens, interior and exterior mirrors, the clear surface of your dashboard and your in-built display screen, so that the clean, smudge-free shine appears all over your vehicle. Where standard window cleaners will leave streaks and could damage your window tint, Genesis Glass Cleaner is truly universal, so you can use it with confidence.
But while the glass cleaner will do the job you want it to, it’s your technique that will remove those final streaks – and the product you’re using to dry the glass.
Diamond Window Towel
When it comes to glass, it’s important to dry the surface as quickly as possible in order to avoid any swirls as the water comes off. This is a typical frustration of drivers and something we’ve spent a lot of time on perfecting. You’ll notice that our Diamond Window Towel has a slightly different texture to our other microfiber towels. This is because the weave of the microfibers is slightly different; the fibers trap the water and absorb it into the towel. Despite this being smaller than our other towels, it is as effective because the focus here is drying sections of glass extremely quickly rather than focusing on sheer surface area.
The Motion of the Ocean
Now that you have the product and the accessory pairing, it’s time to get to work and make the magic happen. Simply spray Genesis Glass Cleaner directly on to the glass; two squirts per window should be enough to ensure complete coverage. Now, you’re going to fold the Diamond Window Towel in half and wipe in a back-and-forth direction across the glass, ensuring that you cover the surface all the way to the corners. Make sure that the glass is completely dry before moving on the next section – refold the Diamond Window Towel and repeat if necessary.
And to rid yourself of those streaks? Alternate the direction in which you wipe. For interior windows, wipe in a horizontal direction; for exterior windows, wipe in a vertical direction. This will ensure zero streaks. It’s all in the crosshatches. Give it a go!
