Have you ever wondered about the streaks left behind by glass cleaners?
Cleaning Tips: The Science behind Streaky Windows
A few days of warmer weather may have you ready to open the windows, but a winter’s worth of dirt and grime may have you ready to close the curtains instead. 80% of people cleaning their windows each spring, but it’s no secret that the chore is a major pane. Drop the coffee filters, squeegees, and soapy cleaners. The secret to streak free windows starts with what’s hiding in your glass cleaner.
Science behind the Streak
Invisible Glass® has partnered with the glass science experts of Advanced Materials Research, Inc. to reveal that it’s not about how you clean but rather what you’re cleaning with.
Common glass cleaners contain streaky soaps, scents, dyes, and other additives that leave residues on glass surfaces. These residues cling to glass forming streaks while also attracting more dust and grime to the surface.
The test analyzed the microscopic compounds found in each formulation of the top glass cleaning brands including Invisible Glass®. These microscopic images show the additives in common cleaners compared to Invisible Glass®. These additives leave residues on glass that form streaks.
Stop Cleaning Up After Your Glass Cleaner
Invisible Glass® was the only glass cleaner tested to be proven 100% residue free. The Clear Dry Formula is free from soaps, scents, dyes, and other additives so it dries completely after cleaning leaving nothing behind – no streaks!
