Part of Ecover’s new range of cleaners with ‘Eco-Surfacants’ (you can read more here), the Window & Glass Cleaner was sent to me along with well-known brand Mr Muscle Window & Glass (with vinegar) to compare with.
Nowadays when I read the instructions on mainstream brands, the first thing I look at is the ‘caution’ section. And on this Mr Muscle it warns you not to breathe in the spray, use only in a well ventilated earlier and avoid prolonged contact with the skin. Not something I really want near me to be honest. But in the name of research I gave it a go.
And it’s pretty good actually. To be honest, neither gave the smear-free shine I was hoping for, but that means they work more or less the same. My windows in the lounge were particularly dirty so any sort of cleaning would have made a difference. But using it on the kitchen windows made a difference too although I wouldn’t have considered them dirty really. It’s quite satisfying having shining windows (or indeed, ones you can see out of) and the Ecover did a nice job. I didn’t have to use a great amount either.
Ecover Window & Glass Cleaner costs around £2.69 in supermarkets and is available online from places like Nigel’s Eco Store.
