Also question is, what happens if you use Windex on tinted windows?

Ammonia-D® is the key ingredient in Windex® and should be avoided at all costs. Ammonia damages window tint and causes it to turn purple and age prematurely. To combat this problem, Windex® released a new product that is ammonia-free: Windex® Crystal Rain™ Glass Cleaner?.

Subsequently, question is, can you use Windex to install window tint? We suggest using Vinegar Windex (Green), or any of the citrus Windex's. There are other cleaners made specifically for tinted windows such as Ammonia-Free Spray Away-Foam Spray, which work very well. You can also use soap and water, vinegar and water, or really anything without ammonia or abrasives.

Is vinegar safe on tinted windows?

Vinegar and water is a popular and safe way to clean your tinted windows. Also, the vinegar or citrus based cleaners that don't have ammonia in them are also acceptable. No, the heat of the stream cleaner will likely cause the glue to soften, resulting in the tint peeling off.
