Glass cleaner is a type of cleaning product specifically designed for cleaning glass surfaces such as windows, mirrors, and glass tabletops. Its primary purpose is to remove dirt, dust, fingerprints, streaks, and other unsightly marks from glass, leaving it clear, transparent, and sparkling. Here's an explanation of glass cleaner and how it works:

  1. Composition:

    • Solvents: Glass cleaners typically contain solvents like alcohol or ammonia, which help dissolve and lift away grease, grime, and oily residues from the glass.
    • Surfactants: These are surface-active agents that help break down and disperse dirt and particles, preventing them from re-depositing on the glass.
    • Water: Water is a key component in most glass cleaners, serving as a medium for the other ingredients and helping to dilute and rinse away contaminants.
    • Fragrances: Some glass cleaners include fragrances to leave a pleasant scent after cleaning.
  2. How it Works:

    • Spray Application: The BRAND LEE glass cleaner is available in a spray bottle for easy application. When sprayed onto the glass surface, the liquid adheres to the dirt and contaminants.
    • Dirt Dissolution: The solvents in the glass cleaner start dissolving grease, oils, and other residues on the glass, making them easier to remove.
    • Wiping: After applying the cleaner, a lint-free cloth, paper towel, or a squeegee is used to wipe the surface. The combination of the liquid and mechanical action of wiping helps remove the loosened dirt.
    • Streak-Free Finish: Glass cleaners are formulated to evaporate quickly, leaving behind a streak-free, clear, and clean glass surface. Surfactants in the cleaner help prevent streaks and spots.
  3. Safety Precautions:

    • Ventilation: Many glass cleaners contain ammonia, which can be harmful if inhaled in large quantities. Ensure good ventilation when using glass cleaner indoors.
    • Avoid Mixing: Do not mix glass cleaner with other cleaning products, as this can result in dangerous chemical reactions. Read product labels for specific instructions.
    • Eye and Skin Protection: Be cautious when handling glass cleaner, and avoid contact with your eyes and skin. In case of contact, rinse immediately with water.
