Cleaning your Tesla Cybertruck requires special attention to maintain its appearance, particularly due to its stainless steel panels. Unfortunately, finger prints on the exterior of the Cybertruck have been a common complaint. Finger prints on the Cybertruck often come from people opening and closing the doors. Here’s a quick guide based on Tesla’s recommendations:

Cybertruck Finger Prints: Recommended Glass Cleaner

While some have used and been happy with liquid glass cleaners such as Windex, many more have gone with an ammonia free foaming glass cleaner from Sprayway. I was first introduced to this product when I had the windows tinted on my first truck many, many years ago. Sprayway seems to continue to be a top choice amongst tint installers. The foaming solution will not run down the sides of your vehicle nearly as much as a liquid glass cleaner.

Spot Cleaning the Cybertruck

  1. For Large Areas (e.g., entire panels), Get Your Materials Ready:
    • Materials Needed: Glass cleaner, microfiber cloth.
  1. Spray the glass cleaner directly onto the surface of the panel.
  • Use a microfiber cloth to wipe the surface in a zig-zag motion. This helps ensure even cleaning and reduces streaks.
  • Continue wiping until the panel is clean and free of fingerprints or marks.
  1. For Small Stains:
    • Materials Needed: Isopropyl alcohol wipes (similar to those used for cleaning glasses or screens).
    • Steps:
      1. Take an isopropyl alcohol wipe and gently rub it over the small stain.
      2. Ensure that the stain is completely removed, then allow the area to air dry.

Additional Tips:

  • Always use a clean microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the stainless steel panels.
  • Avoid using abrasive cleaners or rough materials that could damage the finish of the Cybertruck.
  • Regular cleaning helps maintain the appearance and longevity of the vehicle’s exterior.

By following these steps, you can effectively remove fingerprints and small stains from your Cybertruck, keeping it looking sleek and new. There are other products such as Bar Keeper’s Friend people have used, but a glass cleaner often works for most smaller cleaning touchup jobs. We’ll have more soon on recommendations for cleaning the entire exterior of the Cybertruck.
