Guru Reports Announces Winners in
"The Glass Cleaner Test"
Vienna, VA (July 3, 2003) Jump Media Group: Guru Reports, an independent research group, released the results of its comprehensive test of 25 glass cleaning products. Earning the coveted "Tested Best Award" were products from Bon Ami, Sprayway and Turtle Wax.
The Glass Cleaner Test follows the critically acclaimed Guru Reports: Wax Test Special Report, and includes a proprietary set of comprehensive test criteria and scientific research and analysis of 25 popular glass cleaning products. Guru Reports has been praised for its ability to provide in-depth information that closely represents product performance in the real world.
"There were a few surprises in the Glass Cleaner test," says Guru Reports Editor-in-Chief Steve Litscher. "Glass has always been a tricky issue for many folks, and our tests prove that using the correct product can alleviate some of those issues."
The report subjected the 25 products to a diverse set of test criteria including evaluating overall performance on smoke-hazed glass, bug soiled exterior glass, grimy soiled glass, "new car" glass, and regular plate glass. In an ingenious and unprecedented move, the Gurus utilized steam to determine cleaning efficiency.
"Steam proved extremely useful," says Litscher. "After cleaning the glass with a product, we discovered that steam allowed us to determine just how well the product actually worked. It could show us things that would have normally gone unnoticed."
Bon Ami Non-Streaking Glass & Surface Cleaner earned the highest grade of all of the products tested. The Gurus commented that the product "made short work" of their most soiled glass panel by packing a strong puch that finished haze and streak-free.
Following closely on the heels of the Bon Ami product was Turtle Wax Clearvue Auto Glass Cleaner. The Gurus praised the product for its consistent and reliable performance, and were equally impressed with the product's low price.
Finishing in a very close third place (the top three glass cleaner products placed within 0.08 points of one another) was Sprayway Glass Cleaner. The Gurus comment that the product delivers "one heckuva wallop," noting that it cleaned-up the grimy test panels with great ease.
Earning an Editors Choice award was Mothers Glass Cleaner. The Guru editorial staff noted that the product was consistent, easy to use and provided respectable results across the entire range of test criteria.
Publisher Charlie Romero said, "The Guru Reports Glass Cleaner Test demonstrates yet again that consumers have a wide range of choices for cleaning their windows - be it home, automotive, marine and so on. I believe that our report will help consumers make an educated purchase, which judging from the feedback we've received, is something that consumers appreciate tremendously."
