    Al-53 Welcome to Detailing

    I was at Home Depot Tuesday to get some grass seed...i went to the cleaning dept to see if the Sprayway glass cleaner was on sale....I seen a new Zep glass cleaner called Zep I grabbed one to's a 24oz can for 2.97 also have it in gallon size concentrate for 9.98...1 gallon makes 32 gallons of window cleaner...non ammoniated for tints....

    Now I get home and grab a few Mf towels and try it on my glass in the cut some serious road grime on my back sliding window....did all the windows next...spotless...not a streak seen while driving that night with oncoming headlights...crystal clear...

    Yesterday I did the lower house windows with it..they had the typical winter blah's on them...even though they had AW on them ..I use AW on my windows after any ways the Zep took off the water stains...and crud like no other spray I its a keeper for me...I am getting the gallon of concentrate today...

    Now I have used the IG...NXT glass cleaner....Sprayway my favorite....and a few others...and I will say the Zep did a great job over all....

    I also got a bottle of the Clorox earth friendly APC..have not tried it yet...but smells

    Give the Zep Glass cleaner a shot ..see for your self...

    here is the link to them...the top one is the concentrate..the bottom one is the spray...the middle one is ammoniated so forget that one for tint....

    Sounds like a good product. Thanks a lot for reminding me that I need to clean all the windows and glass sliding doors on my house. That's an all day job for sure.

    Al, do you think its best to use distilled water with the concentrated version?
  5. Al-53

    Al-53 Welcome to Detailing

    yes....I would use nothing but distilled water....I will grab a few jugs at wal mart want a mineral free water in any product you dilute...also if you have city water the chlorine or chloramine in it will streak or leave a dull look if used with diluting any APC or QD

    Excellent review! I did the windows on the new house a few days ago, but it left streaking. Might pick some of this up and give it a go.

    This in my new US Plastics chemically resistant sprayers and I'll be in clean window heaven...

    I have been using the traficc lane cleaner and extractor soap for awhile now and it does as good as the expensive stuff I bought ...both under 10.00 a gallon and they have enymes in it also to rid son is taking the Mytee to work to do his bosses lexus that he split milk in 2 weeks ago...and using the ZEP products on it...

    Zep is some serious good stuff so far...and great on the pockets...get the Commercial strength stuff over the regular stuff...

    Great tip Al. I have to go to HD tomorrow so I will check out the Zep Glass Cleaner. If its cheaper and easier to get than NXT Glass Cleaner then we have a winner :)

    Al, I used the spray can this am on the beater that had been sitting outside before work. The glass was wet and I was using an older MF. I found the sprayer to have a wide pattern, next time I will hold the can closer for a more direct stream.

    The windows seamed streak free on the way into work when still dark. I'll have a good look again on the way home, when I should have some sun.

    The Ammonia free one....its tint safe.....and use distilled or DI water for the mix....

    Nice to hear my fellow DB'ers talking about cleaning glass. I've been a Stoner Invisible Glass man for a long time now, but I have used various Zep products and they have always performed well. You raise a good point Al-53 by noting that it is available in a concentrate which makes it very cost effective.
