Glass

So - after seeing the turtle wax post, I figured i'd toss this out there -

So, are the high end glass cleaners really worth the funds compared to an off the shelf glass cleaner like Windex or Glass Plus.

How do they compare to the age old vinager and water?

Stoner's Invisible Glass can be bought OTC. It's one of the few things I buy OTC that most people buy online. It's cheap and does an amazing job.

I use Adam's Glass Cleaner, it works better than anything else I've tried, that includes Stoners. I hate the smell of vinegar so that alone would turn me off from that. A good glass MF towel goes a long way too.

By the way, if your window are tinted, definitely do not use Windex or any ammonia based product.

I have wasted money on high end glass cleaner before. Invisible glass by Stoner is million times better

It's real cheap. If you have an Advance Auto Parts near you, they have it there. If you really want to get it cheaper, you can buy it online and use the code P20 to save 20% and just pick it up at your local store.

Stoner's Invisible Glass is the best! My wife started using it all over the house after seeing how great it works on the cars.

We get it at Walmart in the automotive section. Safe for tint, which is why I bought it originally, but it does a much better job than Windex and it doesn't drip.

I use Chemical Guy's window cleaner. Even diluted 1:1 cleaner/water it works really well. I hate, hate, HATE cleaning windows, but this stuff seems to do a good job, a bottle of it will last me a while. It also appears that CG is running a sale on their site 12.85/gallon of it. That should last any hobbyist washing 1-3 cars at least 2 years.
