Windex Foaming Glass Cleaner Review: Aerosol Version Is The Best
I've just tried Windex foaming glass cleaner, which is an aerosol product instead of the more traditional spray pump bottle that you normally associate with this brand.
I have to say, I absolutely loved it.
It really coats the surface of your mirrors, such as in your bathroom, so that you can easily clean all parts of it.
I had never realized how much easier aerosol sprays were for glass cleaning until I tried Sprayway Glass Cleaner which is also an aerosol product. Now after trying two different brands I'm sold, and will be using the aerosol version from now on instead of the spray bottles.
Now, how does the Windex version compare with Sprayway? They were pretty close, since they both did a great job cleaning. I would most likely buy the one which is cheaper, or on sale, or which I had a coupon for.
However, one area where I think the Sprayway may have done a slightly better job was on stuck on gunk on the glass or mirrors. I had to use my thumbnail more with the Windex to scrape those little pieces of gunk off on than with the competitor, but this is not a huge thing. Just an observation.
In addition, the Windex brand had a heavier scent, which took longer to dissipate.
Oscar has shared what his favorite window cleaner is.
I have used a lot of different brands of window cleaners, and the one that I use now is Windex.
Quite frankly it leaves a lot less streaks than all the other products and as far as cleaning thick grease film it does a far better job.
I like all varieties and scents. They all do a wonderful cleaning job, and just like in the commercials the transparency of the cleaned glass is sensational. It is hard to tell if the glass doors are closed, even when they are.
Fortunately, I haven't had any birds run into my windows though, like in the commercials. Ha!
Thanks Oscar for your Windex glass cleaner review.
I've always thought that commercial was kind of weird, because who wants birds flying into their windows? At my parents house birds actually do fly into some of the second story windows, and knock themselves out they run into them so hard. I feel pretty sorry for them. Fortunately, they generally revive and fly off, hopefully a bit wiser!
Windex Cleans Off My Toddlers Smudges And Smears Off Surfaces
I have used Windex as my primary window cleaner for about ten years. It is a great product that I have only recently begun to appreciate.
I have two toddlers and it cleans sticky food smears, crayon, saliva, greasy fingerprints and so much more.
I have started using it on the glass topped TV stand, the TV, mirrors, the desk and even my granite countertops. It works better than any other cleaner I have tried!
It has never caused harm to any of my products, not even when it spilled on my oak desk. I hate to use anything on my TV because it is a plasma but one night just before company came by I noticed dried banana hand prints on it and had to clean quick.... It worked and did not damage the TV! I love Windex.
Kids do seem able to leave hand prints and stickiness behind like a trail to track where they've been, don't they?
I did some research when you said that you used Windex glass cleaner on granite, because I wasn't sure if that was OK or not. Turns out it is fine, as long as your granite is sealed.
In addition, until recently I had no idea that Windex actually made a special cleaner for electronics. I guess I worry about using the original glass cleaner on your plasma TV, although you aren't the first person who has told me they do this.
If this is an issue you have a lot (and who doesn't suffer from fingerprints on their TV screens, computer monitors, etc.) you might want to check this out. I'm not sure what the formulation difference is, but I would hate for you to void the warranty on your TV by using a product not suited to clean it.
