To achieve this, you can use a soft wash cloth to dry them thoroughly after cleaning.

2. Don’t wax in direct sunlight – Its always best to wax your car out of direct sunlight since wax dries instantly as soon as you apply it, making it very difficult to buffer.

The sun also heats up the car windows leaving a waxy residue that becomes very difficult to remove.
