I occasionally fry food in my home but have unfortunately not yet conquered heating the oil correctly without it "popping" sending splatters all over my stove as well as the ceramic tiles behind it, the wooden cupboards above it, the refrigerator next to it and the surrounding walls and ceiling. In the past I have tried every "grease fighting" product I've seen advertised.They have ALL fallen short! Tonight is the LAST time I grab my Windex bottle as a "last" result! It has time and time again proven to be the ONLY cleaning product that actually works on dissolving and cutting through grease spots! Funny thing is though, I've never even tried any of the "new" Windex products,....the Original Glass Cleaner does the job all on it's own! I'm sold and will never spend another penny on any other "grease fighting" product!

I have used Windex forever. The last couple of bottles have left streaks everywhere. Even the Windex that is sold on cloths in packages does this. (So I know it is not my paper towels). Has anything changed in the formula? Could it just be Windex sold in California? We have lots of regulations here prohibiting this and that. Please help. A couple of years ago I would have given the product an excellent review. Thank you!

Something has changed with this once excellent product

By Katydidx4

from Buffalo Junction, VA 24529, USA

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

As so many of the other reviews have suggested, it definitely seems as though something has changed. I can't get it to stop streaking. I have used Windex for as long as I can remember for everything. I primarily use Windex original. I'm not exactly sure when I started having issues. Probably the last year or so. I tried changing paper towels and using a clean lint free rag with no improvement. It's been driving me crazy. No matter how many times I spray and wipe my mirrors, windows, appliances and our glass top tables there are still streaks. Disappointingly I'm going to start trying other product.


Would love to use it but I can't... Bottle keeps breaking

By disappointedmom

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

I have now purchased two different 23 oz bottles of the Windex Orignial within 4 weeks of each other. The spray trigger broke off on the first bottle after about 4 uses. I still had 80% of the bottle left. So I went and purchased a second 23 oz bottle with the intentions of switching out the tops so that I could use the rest of the first bottle. After one use (cleaned 4 windows and a mirrow) the trigger from the second bottle broke too. Now I am stuck with two almost completely full bottles of windex and no way to clean. I will be looking for a new brand...


Thanks for fixing the streaking problem

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

When I found this site, there were a lot of prior reviews complaining bitterly that the new Windows was inferior to the old and left hard to remove streaks. I find it hard to believe that people are that incredibly inept and impatient and have to assume that it was in some way the fault of Windex. Be that as it may, I bought another industrial sized Windex Advanced from Costco recently and after using it on the windows of my car, outside and inside, I am relieved that you seem to have listened to the on-line complaints and fixed the problem. This version of Windex not only sprayed well but, when used as recommended, with perhaps a bit of extra elbow grease as needed, actually cleaned the inside and outside glass surfaces and left them sparkling. Thanks again for fixing my favorite window cleaning solution.


What happened???

By Kay72

from Tampa, FL, USA

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

I have been a faithful Windex user for over 40 years ... but the last couple of years I've noticed more and more that it does not clean like it used to. My mirrors were always sparkling clean, but now I have a film and streaks that will not come off. I even went back over them with a clean dry paper towel and there were faint blue smudges on the paper towel. That tells me that Windex is leaving a residue on the glass ... which leads to streaks .... which is frustrating. Recently remodeled the bathroom and we have lots of mirrors, but now they are a hot mess. Will be trying new cleaners - or using vinegar and water.


Product Good, Spray Mechanism Terrible

By JSteveJ

from Central Ohio

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

26 FlOz Original BarCode 19800 70344, Lot P243T 17:16 Don't know if this is a recent design change in the pump or a defective product. When pulling the trigger, it sprays but the trigger does not return properly, and have to wait about 2 seconds to spray again, so a multiple spray is frustratingly slow when doing 15 windows inside and out. I also notice many bubbles in the top of the bottle - maybe because of a defect in the pump. I'd try for the money back guarantee - but of course bought the bottle about 3 weeks ago and don't have the receipt


Cloudy streaks

By speedy

from Texas, USA

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

Maybe i am picky but after cleaning i see a film and cloudy streaky result. I have used this product for many years and don't want to change if i don't have to. Mirrors and windows used to look like new but not lately.


Not the original

By campingramps

from Garner, NC, USA

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

I remember years ago that Windex used to be the go to product for clean car windows. Spray it on and wipe it off with no streaks. Not anymore. I don't know what you changed but I spent 15 minutes trying to clean my car windows and they are still streaked. It is so bad that I have to be careful driving tonight because the streaking causes so much glare. I will find something else tomorrow. You need to go back to the formula you had 25 years ago which worked as well as your commercials state now. I have tried some of the other Windex products and they are worse. Forget profits for once and make a quality product again!


Streaks and Film

By Lynn S.

from Houston, TX, USA

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

This product is no where near working successfully in cleaning windows. To my disappointment the home remedies that I had used before trying this worked 100% better. No matter how I approach the cleaning, it just leaves streaks and film. In years past Windex was used and it seemed to have worked better than the current bottle. Biggest disappointment is that I just bought a one gallon refill!

Streaks, streaks, and smears, smears!!

By Chris

from Loveland, CO

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

Not the product I remember using for years. Interesting to read several review saying the same things, and you have answered so kindly, but never given answer. Have you changed the formula? If not, why is it streaking and smearing when it never used to. For years we used Windex and a clean paper towel to clean the polyester surfaces on fine grand pianos... this is not the same!!

Using Windex glass cleaner at a care facility

Comments about Windex Original Glass Cleaner:

I use this product a lot at a care facility somewhere in California, because it works really well. I take turns using it with my friends. Thumbs up for volunteers everywhere.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
