Hi

After finding Tims excellent site and completly amazed with some of the products of offer - thought I would write some reviews of what Ive bought from Cleanyourcar.co.uk. All my reviews are tested on 2007 VW Golf GTI

First up is the Stoner Invisible Glass Cleaner:

I cant put in to words how frustrated I have been over the years with trying to find a glass cleaner that doesnt streak.

I have bought two other glass cleaners from Tim (reviews to follow) and this was a purchase out of curiosity as had never heard of the brand and thought the description claimed alot on cleanyourcar.co.uk (i.e no streaks or smears) - so was keen to have a go.

Some cleaners are a either a chemical liquid spray (SwissVax - Crystal Glass Cleaner) or Creams (Sonus Glass Cleaner). I find both types of product can streak if either a) you put too much on or b) dont rub it off properly (alot of hard work). I find most of the time, how ever much i try with a microfibre, once the sun shines on the glass streaks will have been left. Frustrating to say the least.

This product claims "not to use dyes so no streaks, no smears" , so like with alot of glass cleaners I was abit sceptical. To spray on, it smells like any other chemical glass cleaner (windowlene springs to mind). Once on you need to rub all over the glass with a microfibre cloth. After about 4-5 passes, the liquid "evaporates" to leave it completly smear free. Compared to other cleaners, there is not a massive amount of effort needed to get great results.

AT LAST, a glass cleaner that does what it claims! Im so happy - Thank you Tim!

I seriously rate this product - a must for people who are perfectionists with glass! Can't live with out this now!

Wow talk about luck. I just read the description on the website about this. The glass in my Astra isn't in very good condition.

May just give this a go when it comes in stock.

If glass hasnt been cleaned for a while, may need two applications, makesure you buff off with a microfibre well for best results! :D

What is this stuff like for water repellence when raining (or when washing down), so as to avoid water spots on glass?

Its a glass cleaner, it wont repell water.

Of all the water replleants, I find Rain Away the best (the sell it on ideal world channel), but you can also get it from http://www.auto-unique.co.uk/auto_unique/1270/moreinfosu/pid/2758978, its £5.99 and it is one of the best ive seen. Lasts about 6 months with one application - cant rate it enough! So much better than rain X!

Emailed Tim last week regarding stock of the Stoner glass cleaner and he has it on order and he should have it in stock this week - im going to be getting two bottles i think ! :)

Really is a first class product, really easy to use and the finish is superb...

Ive found when used on the windscreen, it seems to leave a very thin layer of wax which repels water superbly when used with the wipers, will be buying again.. :wink:
