This is the best glass cleaner on the market in my experience. Its by far the easiest to use and produce great results. Most glass cleaners have no problem cleaning and degreasing glass. The area they struggle in is removing the toweling and wiping marks when finished. I cant believe it took manufacturers this long to get the problem. They just keep making stronger and stronger glass cleaners, that flash faster thinking this will resolve the problem. but it wont. It actually makes them harder to use by their own design. Let me explain. Removing dirt and oil is easy. The problem is removing your footprints or evidence of doing so. The more you degrease glass, the grippier it becomes. So in the case where you are actually able to remove the wiping marks, the next problem arises in leaving lint while doing so. Even specifically designed glass towels struggle in this area.
A few years back I posted my resolution for this problem on AGO, and I was hoping that manufacturers were listening. The solution is to follow up a glass degreaser (or cleaner) with a product that has some protection or slick properties to it. the most trouble free product I was able to find to complete this task was a light dilution of rinse free wash in a spray bottle. When you use a product like this on glass it will fill in the pores and leave a level surface on the glass that is no longer grippy. Making wiping up toweling marks easily WHILE NOT LEAVING LINT BEHIND. This turned glass cleaning into a 2 step, 2 product process. But even with the added chemical and time this was still easier and more foolproof than the traditional way. It was a surefire way of knowing your glass would be perfect without having to check in direct sunlight at just the right angles.
Now keep in mind, some companys have produced products that will do this very same thing (stoners with rain repellent). the only issue is they are ONLY recommended for exterior glass. This makes me believe that this product was designed not to make glass cleaning easier, but to simply protect the window.
So when Pinnacle came out with this product the first thing I looked for is if they designed it for interior use. Which they did. At that point I knew this cleaner was produced NOT for the rain repellent effect (as how much rain do you get on the interior ??) but for ease of use. I was thrilled to see this and very happy Pinnacle listened to our feedback on the forum (there was a glass cleaning thread that went on for months and had about 30 pages of posts discussing this topic).
I purchased the product and it did not let down. It works great and gives perfect results every time no matter how bad your technique is.
thank you Pinnacle !!!
