    Windex works fine for me. Windex with vinegar is pretty good for water spots.

    For residential use that stuffs OK I guess. You will never see it outside residential use though.

    For the best of both worlds here is where you can find the good stuff http://shopwindowcleaningresource.com/

    They also have good information regarding the proper cleaning of windows. Some good info in there. 99% of people I see cleaning glass do it wrong so maybe worth a reading.

    Here is the do's and don't for cleaning glass in North America by GANA http://www.simpsondoor.com/care-finishing/Glass Cleaning Recommendations.pdf

    2nd the Sprayway. It works well. Better than Stoner's Invisi-Glass water in a can.

    "Invisi-Glass"? Do you mean Stoner's Invisible Glass?

    Yes Stoner's Invisible Glass. I like Stoner's products but the window cleaner doesn't work well for me.

    For me, its not necessarily so much the product as it is the towel. Use a proper Microfiber GLASS towel and straight water will usually be enough. I picked stoners, but in all honesty, I'll use just about anything now. Eagle1 was on sale at pep boys and it's been working great. Like I said though, it's all about the towels :)

    I have never used such a great glass cleaner in my life until I found Sprayway. It took all the bug guts off my truck without even rubbing!

    Sprayway + microfiber is awesome. And dirt cheap. Great value.

    3rd the sprayway, and couldn't of said it better about stoner's, water in a can, complete waste of money. Anybody that sell's that crap to people on the premise it's a "glass cleaner" is pretty pathetic. :der:

    Oh no, here we go again....:rolleyes: I have a feeling that people are going to get slammed and demeaned for using a product that this guy doesn't like. Funny how in a lot of his posts he's pretty helpful but will be very mean to those who don't think like he does. So if you are a victim of this, just ignore him. Threads have been derailed because of this.

    And FWIW, I buy that Invisible Glass and it works for me. :)

    So it works well on glazed sugar, vomit, and blood?
