I use a spray glass cleaner on my indoor windows and my shower door. The shower door gets cleaned, obviously, more frequently than the windows do, but Mr Muscle Glass Cleaner is my first choice when it comes to getting a nice shine, without any smears in sight. The bottle is large and costs me just less than two pounds. It actually lasts me for months as I only ever need to use the tiniest little spray on glass to give a great smear free shine. The bottle is a trigger spray with an ON and OFF nozzle which is simple and easy to operate. However, I do hate the way every bottle of Mr Muscle Window and Glass Cleaner always seem to manage to drip slightly once I have been using it for a while. The fragrance of this glass cleaner is pleasant, not overly strong, and it doesn't irritate the airways as some cleaning products can. I use this glass cleaner by spraying lightly over glass and then rubbing away with a dry cloth. It never smears or leaves any marks or smudges behind. It's so easy to use and so much better than the shop's own brand. It's worth paying the extra pennies for Mr Muscle and it is a brand I really trust. I have to recommend it.
"Mr Muscle" is a strong brand that produces excellent Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaners. I was doubly disappointed, therefore, to discover that their Window and Glass Cleaner simply does not work. It leaves smears and streaks on the surface of the glass - which require considerable effort (and muscle) to remove. I suppose I should be used to the fact that the phrase "New Formula" often means that something important has been left out or watered down. Proper professional glass cleaners contain various alcohols, such as iso-propanol. OK, so this isn't a professional glass cleaner - but what is it for? I suppose I can use it up in the bathroom or the toilet, but resent having had to go back to the shops for a glass cleaner that works.
I need to clean my windows and mirrors quiet often because my 3 year old son likes to put his fingerprints anywhere. Although I don't like cleaning I cannot stand when I see fingerprints all over mirrors and windows. I have tried maybe 5 different brands by now. I like Mr Muscle more than others since I think it takes less effort to clean. Beside all of these I have 2 children and I need to be sure that products safety mechanism works. Mr Muscle passed my safety test.
Most of my 'cleaning' cupboard is spray or wipe-based. To me, they are the least labour-intensive approaches to housework!
This Mr Muscle Window & Glass comes in a clear plastic bottle with a thin green liquid inside, and a white and orange trigger on top. The bottle is moulded at the neck to make notches for your fingers - it does make it very easy to hold and use the trigger with one hand. The nozzle is protected by rotating the end of the nozzle, it says "on" and "off" embossed into the plastic. It isn't very clear whether it's on or off, you do need to look quite carefully. If you squeeze the trigger while it's turned to off, the spray obviously doesn't come out, but when you realise that, and rotate to "on", the liquid you squoze previously seeps out and dribbles down your fingers. Not ideal. The "instructions" are printed on the back of the main label, which you read through the back of the bottle, through the liquid - illustrating how light and transparent the liquid is.
However, once you're up and running, this cleaner really does its job. I usually use kitchen towel with it, one squeeze of the spray and a wipe with the kitchen towel and the surfaces come up sparkling, no need for a polish/buff afterwards. It dries immediately and leaves no streaks or marks, it really is a case of spray on, wipe off, job done, and it smells lovely and fresh.
You don't need to use much - for example my dining table is about 1.2m circular and one good spray is enough to clean that.
For me though this is really a multi-purpose cleaner, not just glass. Any shiny surfaces it does a brilliant job - my kitchen worktops are gloss finish, and they look gleaming if I finish them off with this, and also my plastic window sills come up like new after a spray of this. I also use it on bedside tables which have a laminate finish, and my coffee table is a type of faux-leather which it also works great on. Obviously mirrors also come up beautifully, no streaks.
It contains vinegar which is apparently why it's so effective on glass, but the smell is nice and fresh (not vinegary!) - not that you should be inhaling, obviously!
It's not cheap, it's over £3 a bottle for 500ml, although I know the last one I bought was on offer and it lasts a long time, so I consider it good value for how good a product it is.
I love a clean house and I clean my windows frequently. I buy what is on offer normally and I find that is usually Mr Muscle. I paid a £1 for a 500ml bottle in Asda.
The bottle has a pump action dispenser which has a nozzle that you can turn to the on or off position. I leave mine on open after forst use. The product contains vinegar for a streak free shine. It is also designed to cut through grease and dirt. This product is not just for windows but also for glass in the home and mirrors.
To use the product you are advised to squirt directly on the surface using full trigger strokes and then wipe with kitchen paper or a clean dry cloth. The first few times I used this I was impressed with the results. I clean my windows frequently inside and out so to be honest there isn't much dirt so a few squirts does the job on those windows. However my patio door gets really dirty, it's in the kitchen and despite me trying in vain to keep my daughter away she always manages to spread something on there when I am not looking or worse still putting greasy fingermarks everywhere. Sometimes the marks can be quite stubborn and in the past other cleaners have required a lot of elbow grease. So in terms of cleaning the glass this product is excellent however I have noticed that no matter what cloth I use I get streaks. I have tried a Vileda cloth, microfibre cloths and also kitchen rolls. Now I am not sure why this happens but even if I rub vigorously I still get streaks. I have since started using a squeegy and I have found I get lovely shiny windows! I have also used this to clean the window surround which can get dirty especially mine as I always have my windows open. For cleaning the uPVC this product is excellent. It removes dust and dirt leaving my surrounds looking white and clean. I discovered this by accident when I was being too lazy to switch to another cleaning product.
On mirrors this product is also good. In my bathroom my mirror covers the whole wall and this does get 'dirty' I think I have ocd as if someone has a bath and the condensation that forms on the mirror starts to drip I can see the marks on the mirror, this really annoys me so I use the cleaner every few days to clean the mirror. I found that again using cloths to clean it leaves streaksso I now use my trusty squeegy and in fact I have started asking my partner to use it on the mirror after his bath or shower. He thinks I am crazy!! I also have one of those horrible shower screens I hate it as it gets soap marks and finger marks from it being opened and shut. The soap gets removed with ease by the cleaner. I have also used this on my tv stand which is made of glass and again has little fingerprints regularly left on it by my daughter. The glass cleaner works far better at cleaning the stand compared to polish which I had always used previously.
The only negative things I can say about this cleaner is the smell. It is vile. It smells heavily of vinegar. Luckily the smell doesn't linger too long.
I have been using the same bottle for over 3 months now and there is still 3/4 left. I can see this lasting me a long time. Overall this is a gopd product it removes dirt and grime from glass surfaces and leaves them looking shiny and clean.
My Husband and I have a deal, I clean the inside of the windows and he cleans the outside. We are both a bit half hearted at keeping our ends of the deal up, but I personally believe I keep the windows cleaner on the inside than Mr H does on the outside. At the moment I could possibly plant some small shrubs on the outer panes, Mr H is a bit under the weather and is not up for a lot of strenuous activity, I may have to call in the services of the local window cleaner (to clean the windows).
Mr H favours the big bucket of soapy water, lambs wool applicator and squeegee; I prefer the bottle of Mr Muscle Window and Glass Cleaner and a soft cotton cloth. Before Mr Muscle came along I used to wash the windows with a soapy cloth and then buff the windows to a shine, it used to be quite strenuous work keeping all 15 windows in the house clean and not a task I enjoyed.
Now all I have too do is give the window a couple of squirts of Mr Muscle W&G Cleaner, the cleaner is bright green in colour and foams up ever so slightly when sprayed it also has a slightly soapy smell to it, and then buff away and in a matter of seconds the window comes up sparkling. That's it, it is really simple. I would not use this on the outside windows at the moment though as they are seriously filthy and require a lot of hot soapy water to remove a couple of months dust, rain and roadside muck. I do however recommend Mr Muscle W&G Cleaner for windows that are moderately dirty and are just needing a quick freshen up.
Mr Muscle W&G Cleaner is also great for cleaning the kitchen tiles, my kitchen tiles are glossy black brick shaped ones and when they are clean they look excellent but when they are dirty they look terrible. I simply give a couple of squirts of W&G cleaner onto the area I wish to clean and then I buff the tiles to a brilliant shine. If I have let the tiles get mucky I need to go over an area twice to bring them back to there former glory but it is still a lot quicker than using multi purpose cleaner.
I also use Mr Muscle W&G Cleaner to clean the mirrors in the house, we have a massive mirror above the fireplace and this regularly needs a good clean as it gets dusty or my teenagers squeeze spots in the mirror and the spot splatter sticks. The W&G cleaner makes short work of mirrors.
Mr H has also used this watered down 50/50 in the window washer tank of the car, not something I recommend to do in the winter but it does bring the car window screen up to a brilliant streak free shine.
I find that no matter what I use the W&G cleaner on it brings each surface up to a high, streak free shine with little effort required on my part. I even use this on the annoying glass TV stands and the glass computer desk, for a while after the stands seem to attract less dust.
The packaging has changed slightly from that of the DooYoo picture but not really enough for me to go in to a massive packaging description; the product is still very recognisable on shop shelves.
The bottle claims to cut grease and grime, leave a streak free shine, be smear free and quick and easy to use, I can tick yes on all claims despite not knowing the difference between a streak and a smear.
The bottle itself is of sturdy design and the trigger mechanism is very strong, there will be no need to throw the product away or decant it in to another spray bottle as I have never had a trigger break on me. Quite often I keep the spray bottles and reuse them for other home made cleaning concoctions.
I brought my bottle of Mr Muscle W&G cleaner when it was on half price offer for a £1 in Wilko's. It usually retails around £2 and is available from most supermarkets, discount stores and online.
If you have not already guessed by now that this is a positive review and I thoroughly recommend Mr Muscle W&G Cleaner, it does exactly what it says on the bottle.
Thank you for reading.
Mr Muscle is a brand that has been around for a good 20 years, trying to persuade us that the brand makes cleaning really quick and easy, even for weedy people. That is if we choose to believe the advert.
I was brought up very traditionally with a cream based cleaner, Windolene, being the way you cleaned windows. A bit of the product with lots of elbow grease, and you got great results.
The first time I came across Mr muscle glass cleaner was in 1998. I started working in a chip shop to help support me through university. When you had worked there a certain length of time, as well as serving I took on other responsibilities such as cleaning the shop in the quieter periods, so I suddenly aged 19 came across all these different cleaning products that I had never used before, and I started to form some non-parent influenced opinions.
In chip shops, there is a lot of grease and steam, which together are not a good combination. Anyone who has been in a chip shop will be familiar with the way the food is displayed in a glass cabinet. Customers come in, and touch this cabinet in the shop side, and it can get quite grimy.
I would be sent round to the shop side with a bottle of this cleaner and a cloth, and be expected to whizz round and make it look better in a short gap between customers.
Using Mr Muscle glass cleaner
This cleaner is in a trigger spray bottle, containing 500ml of the product. It is a green liquid, which is a little different to other window cleaner sprays on the market which are clear. A little does seem to go a long way with this in my opinion. Too much and your cloth becomes saturated and no longer works well.
A quick spray, a quick wipe and the surfaces are clean.
When I was first using this I was so unbelievable impressed with it, as it would bring the outer surface of the food cabinets up really well with no smears and no product residue.
The first time I had to buy my own glass cleaning product, I opted for this because I knew it worked well.
However, in my own home, while it still worked quickly, I could not always produce the streak free finish I had experienced in my work place, and I was left disappointed.
Nowadays, I am still using up the first bottle of the product I bought 7 years ago, with at least 150ml of product left.
Nowadays, this product is still one of the best for cleaning my interior mirrors such as the one in the bathroom, but I do not use it on my windows as I don't like the smears that remain. The mirror needs a wipe so often that the annoyance is minimal.
Why did love turn to loathe?
Maybe not quite as strong as loathe, but I certainly could never get the results at home that first impressed me so much.
The only thing I can think of is that when I used it in the chip shop the glass it was being sprayed onto was warm, so therefore the very runny liquid cleaner evaporated really quickly. With hardly any effort the glass looked very clean.
Glass surfaces in the home are never as warm, so I was never going to get the same effect.
If my windows were exceptionally dirty, I might use this to get off the first layer of dirt, but overall I do not think these make my windows fully streak free. To me if I am doing a job I want to do it properly. I am all for saving time if you get the same end result, but this is a bit lacking to me.
I know a lot of people love this, and maybe I am a bit too fussy, but that is the way I have been brought up, and is the way I feel about it. I can appreciate it is very useful in a location like a food retail outlet as it leaves little smell and you can quickly get back to business without putting off customers, but I want a little more from something I use at home.
When it comes to window cleaning products it is one of the few areas where I'm picky and have a definite firm favourite, that being the original pink, creamy Windolene. On my spring cleaning frenzies there isn't another window cleaner that I would use. I find it really satisfying using the cream cleaner and the fact that it is quite labour intensive just makes me feel as though I've cleaned the windows properly. My mum always uses it too, which is the main reason I do - I trust her judgement on these things and the smell of it takes me right back to childhood! However, it is, as I said, quite labour intensive as you have to wipe each window at least 3 times and get through dozens of cloths when doing the whole house.
For this reason I also have in my cleaning cupboard a bottle of Mr Muscle Window and Glass cleaner. I picked it up one day on my usual shop but as it was so long ago I really can't remember how much I paid for it. A quick look online and I see that it currently sells at Tescos for £1.98. I only ever buy cleaning products when they're on offer so I know I won't have paid that much for it, although I don't think that's a bad price anyway really.
For your £1.98 you get 500ml of a green coloured liquid inside a squirt bottle. The bottle is a typical one for this kind of product; wide from the front, slimmer when looked at from the side and narrowing as it gets taller, with a squirt mechanism in the lid and handle. The bottle is clear so you can see how much product you have left but the accents on it are, like the liquid itself, green - apart from the Mr Muscle branding which is bright orange.
The label on the front tells us that this brand loves the jobs we hate and that it is non-smear and has added vinegar. Rather unusually there is no label on the back of the bottle, instead all other information is written on the reverse of the front label and so you have to read it through the liquid...not overly easy when the liquid is green. I would imagine some people find it difficult to read that label - I know I struggle and now, with my bottle half empty (ok, ok, half full seen as I'm trying to look on the positive side of life!) it is definitely much easier to read the information that is at the top of the label and so not covered by the liquid any more than it is to read the rest of it through the green. This label provides us with the usual information of how to use it (spray directly onto surface and wipe off with a clean cloth basically!), what it can be used on (windows, mirrors and other glass surfaces), warnings about keeping it away from children and not getting it in your eyes and contact details for the manufacturer (SC Johnson, in case you're interested). Disappointingly there is no indication of whether the bottle is recyclable when empty.
As I said, using this window cleaner is very easy, you simply spray it onto the surface you want to clean and then wipe it off with a clean cloth - much easier than the Windolene! I bought this specifically to use on a pair of internal glass doors that we have. Each door has fifteen panes of glass in it which means cleaning 60 panes of glass each time I clean them and to do this with a cream clearner would literally take me half the day so this liquid cleaner seemed like an ideal solution.
I tend to squirt each pane on one side of one door then starting at the top work my way down with a clean cloth, wiping the product off and buffing the glass as I go before starting on the next door. This probably only takes me about 10 minutes per side so cleaning this set of doors takes less than an hour, which is a much more acceptable amount of time when there are so many excellent reviews to read!
I find this window and glass cleaner more than acceptable for the job I use it for. It does get the glass clean and sparkly without much effort and doesn't leave any streaks behind if you give it a good buff and so I'm happy with it. The smell of it is in no way offensive but not one of my favourite smells either. It smells fresh and clean and, reassuringly, you can't smell the added vinegar to it, which was a slight worry for me when i first used it! But, for me, nothing will ever smell as good as Windolene!
One way in which this doesn't live up to Windolene is that when you spray it on, whilst it comes out in quite a fine mist initially, it soon turns to liquid again on the glass and starts running down the pane, collecting on the wooden part below. Luckily it loses it's green colour and doesn't stain my white paintwork but still, I would prefer it if it stayed on the glass. I suppose I could always just squirt one pane at a time and work my way down the door to stop this happening but I like to give the cleaner time to do its work before I wipe it off again.
Overall I'm happy enough with this window and glass cleaner from Mr Muscle. It gets the glass clean with very little effort and it lasts for a long time (I've had my bottle for well over a year now and have probably cleaned that set of doors 4 or 5 times with it and, as I said, it's now about half empty) so gives good value for money, but for me it doesn't give the sense of satisfaction that using Windolene does and I will continue to use that for my windows. but for internal glass such as doors, mirrors and tables then I would definitely consider using this if you don't already. If I was being really unbiased then I would give it 5 stars but alas, I'm not that nice! So I'm knocking one star off merely for the fact that it doesn't smell like Windolene and doesn't leave my house smelling like that either. Harsh I know!
Cleaning windows, mirrors and glass is the biggest pain around the house! No matter now many times you do it during the week, a couple of days later they will look grubby. Especially when people touch the, with dirty fingers. I have tried many different glass cleaners, but none have ever been as good as mr muscle. This is a must buy if you care about your windows. I will now go into some more detail on this product and explain how good this actually is :)
You normally can pick this up for £2 for a 500ml bottle. Currently at tesco's this is half price for the next week. It's worth picking some up due to its very useful. The bottle will last you a very long time as I have found you do not need to use a lot. There are cheaper products on the shelf but I have tried these and they tend to cause smears on windows which is frustrating. This is one of the products that you need to pay more for because it's worth the extra money and makes your house look much cleaner!
The bottles are very easy to use, they have a sprayer at the top which is easy to press down. One spray will release a lot of liquid and will cover a large section on the window or glass you are attempting to clean. This bottle is typically only a 500ml size, but In the past they have released 50% extra bottles with 750ml of liquid in them.
The cleaner itself:
It is very easy to use, you just spray on the section you would like to clean, leave it a section and then start to rub it in. Use a straight motion so you are rubbing the same way. You can use paper towels or a towel. If you do it properly you will not leave smears on the glass. The glass will look very clean and shiny. It is great for getting rid of all sorts of dirt. From bird poo to mud. It is also great for getting rid of grease and grime! It doesn't take long to clean a window. You need a bit of elbow grease, but it is well worth using it.
I believe it's worth paying extra for this product as it will clean your windows very well and leaves them streak and smear free. It's the only product I will use from now on. I'm really happy with it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to keep there house nice and clean.
Thanks for reading my review :) I will be giving this product a 5 star rating as there is nothing wrong with it and it will really help to clean your house.
I often do my parents cleaning as my Dad works full time and my Mum works 30 hours a week along with being a leader in a guide group, running a rainbows group and attending a computer course so they are a little bit busy! Yesterday one of the jobs she left for me was to clean the insides of the windows and for this job she suggested I use Mr Muscles Window Cleaner along with some kitchen roll.
How to use
To use the spray is very easy. You simply spray onto the glass and then wipe away with a clean dry cloth.
Is it any good?
This spray was really simple to use, I simply sprayed some onto the glass and then wiped with a piece of kitchen roll.
The cleaner left the glass smear free and I was really impressed at how easy it was to use. I tend to use a cheaper brand of window cleaner at home and although that is ok, this one is much quicker and easier to use. It is also easier to wipe off.
To do all of the windows (3 bedroom house, insides only) it took maybe 20 minutes and this was also giving the frames a quick wipe too.
The glass wasn't filthy as I had cleaned them a few weeks before but with a 'magic cloth' which doesn't need any cleaning product. However, we have two persian cats and they both love to sit in the windows observing the neighborhood so there were a fair amount of smudges!
The product leaves the glass really shiny and I could definitely see a difference after I had finished.
Prices and Availabilty
This window cleaner is available from most supermarkets. Tesco is currently selling it for just 99p.
Should you try it?
Yes, its a really good product that works quickly and easily. Recommended.
A cleaning product that I have bought for several years now is from the well known "Mr Muscle" range, namely the "Window & Glass Cleaner". I have tried out alternatives from time to time but always end up going back to Mr M's version as I find it is rather superior to some of the more 'budget' products aimed at cleaning glass.
Costing around £2 for the 500ml bottle of cleaning spray, I think this offers reasonable value considering how effective the product is, and I find too that the bottle lasts for a couple of months before it needs to be replaced, so I do think the purchase is a fairly economical one.
Spraying the product onto the window could not be easier, thanks to the sturdy plastic nozzle spray on top of the bottle. I find that the plastic nozzle is completely robust and I have never experienced it breaking on me which would render the product useless. I have found that this is something that does happen from time to time with cheaper or more 'budget' cleaner spray products, so a little reassurance can be found in the sturdy packaging in this case.
There is a little 'lock' feature at the end of the nozzle's tip that requires it to be turned off and on in order for the spray to be opened up. This feature strikes me as being useful if there are youngsters in the house as they would struggle to open the bottle adequately, in my opinion. For myself, I have never experienced any difficulty in turning the little square 'tip' even with limited mobility, so most consumers should be able to cope with this feature.
A single spray of the Mr Muscle Window & Glass cleaner will dispense enough of the brightly-coloured green liquid to clean a small area, for example the oblong shaped mirror that hangs in my bathroom can be cleaned effectively with a single spray. The spray will run down the surface it is dispensed onto, as the product is completely liquid. I usually let it run for a few moments as this allows the liquid to cover a larger part of the glass. I then take my cloth and rub the liquid into the glass area, with careful attention to the sides and corners of the area.
Turning the cloth over to the dry side and continuing to rub, the liquid is completely removed from the glass area after only a minute or so. There is no sticky residue left behind, and all blemishes and dirty marks - fingerprints included - are removed from the glass altogether. All that remains is the shiny glass surface of the glass - or indeed, the mirror - which is remarkably streak free.
This is where I have really noticed the Mr Muscle branded cleaner excels over any other brand that I have tried out in the past. Whilst most glass cleaner products will effectively remove all sticky marks and dirty residue, I find that they can take a little more in the way of 'elbow grease' to remove all of the streaks left behind, caused by the robust nature of glass cleaner products in general. The Mr Muscle spray in comparison removes all dirty marks on the surface with ease, leaving nothing in its wake except gleaming glass.
It is obvious to me that the Mr Muscle Window & Glass cleaner performs better than most other window and glass cleaners that I have bought in the past, but another huge plus point is that it seems to cope with dirty windows and smeared mirrors much more easily than other cleaners.... Whether this is down to the Mr Muscle formula being stronger than others is anybody's guess, but the product literally seems to 'cut through' greasy fingerprints, sticky marks and dirty windows, and it does so extremely quickly too.
The whole process of cleaning the three mirrors in my bathroom takes around two minutes, thanks to the Mr Muscle's easy-to-use formula, and there being no need to undertake any continual rubbing to remove the product from the glass surface and 'chase' any tell-tale streaky marks all over the glass until they eventually vanish.
Quite the opposite is true, and I find that the product works extremely quickly, without much effort or fuss, and the end result is a gleaming surface that is without any annoying residue.
The product is fairly versatile too, with it being used all around my home, particularly to clean up the many decorative mirrors and mirrored surfaces that are around my home. I have also used it on my windows of course, as well as cleaning decorative glass jars and vases, mirrored bathroom cabinets, and a glass shelf. The product has performed very well with the assorted chores that I use it for.
As you can probably tell from my review, I am extremely pleased with the performance of the Mr Muscle Window & Glass cleaner and it is a product that I will continue to buy. It has never let me down or failed to meet my expectations, and it gets a full five-star rating from me!
The 500ml bottle of the product can be purchased in good supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco, where the normal price is around the £2 mark.
We have big glass french doors in our kitchen leading to the garden and these have hundreds of little hand prints on them at about knee level, its my little girl who stands there, looking out the window who puts her hands all over the glass. Although I don't mind and I'm not one of those people who tell kids to not touch things I do like to keep my windows clean and so use Mr Muscle window on them. Sometimes I feel like it is hardly worth it though because as soon as I have cleaned them the fingerprints tend to appear again, oh well at least the product works though!
Mr Muscle comes in a bottle with a spray action pump lid so it is very easy to use. What I like about the nozzle is that it has an on and an off button that you twist to the word to turn it on or off. This to me makes the spray bottle quite child proof and I don't mind it being in a cupboard because I know it is safe from them. In order to apply Mr Muscle to your glass or window you just spray it on. I like to do it at the top of the smear so the liquid can work its way down and I leave it for a minute or two and then wipe it off with a special cloth I have. I find that a little bit of spray goes a long way and you don't need too much otherwise the glass will just get wet and not benefit from having extra spray on it.
According to the bottle Mr Muscle has extra vinegar in it which gives effective cleaning for all glass and window surfaces. This helps to cut through the grease and grime (and I find fingerprints are very greasy) and cleans to a streak free shine. I definitely find this is true, once I have wiped this liquid away with a cloth there really are no streaks. I have been really impressed with this spray and will continue to use it even if I am fighting a losing battle with the fingerprints.
A 500ml bottle costs £1.99 and is a spray I recommend.
Cleaning windows is one of those painful jobs that can leave the windows streaky despite how much you try and remove them you'll be darned if you think it's clean because all of a sudden another streak arrives! When my mum was cleaning out her cleaning cupboard there were multiple bottles of cleaner that were either duplicates or something she was no longer going to use. One of the cleaners she gave me was this Mr Muscle window cleaner.
This normally retails for around the £2 mark but can often be found on offer at only £1 making it not much more expensive than a supermarket brand. The bottle is transparent showing the cleaner that is inside which is a deep green colour which is a bit unusual. It comes as a trigger spray bottle that has a tip you can turn to on or off giving it a degree of safety. There are labels on the front and back giving various safety and usage information.
The cleaner itself comes out of the trigger spray easily and sprays onto the window evenly. It is a little thin so it starts to run as soon as it is applied. The liquid has a pretty strong scent to it that has a vinegary aroma, it's not unpleasant and it doesn't hang around long. The liquid does have vinegar in it so it makes sense that it would smell as such. To use it's as simple as spraying and wiping onto the surface of the window, I personally use kitchen roll but you could use whatever you wish.
I find that just a couple of sprays are enough to effectively clean my windows which makes it even better for value especially when a bottle lasts so long. I use this cleaner without gloves and have found no problems with this product affecting my skin which is a further advantage in my opinion.
I find that the windows are easily cleaned and dirt and grime from the outside is quickly cut through and cleaned up with no effort. I also find that the cleaner leaves no streaks, I don't have to spend a lot of my time checking for streaks as there is none there to begin with. Windows and mirrors alike are easily cleaned with this product as well as glass units and come up looking better when I buff the windows up with kitchen roll. This is definitely one of the better brands and works well as well as being within a good price range.
I'm not a great fan of cleaning windows (errrm or housework in general) so I tend to leave the windows until they NEED cleaning! We used to have a window cleaner to come and clean the outside but then as my husband kindly pointed out it was abit of a waste of money when I didn't clean the inside very often. Anyway lurking in my cleaning cupboard is Mr Muscle window & glass spray.
-- The Packaging --
The bottle is made from clear plastic, through this you can see the green liquid. It has a clear plastic top on the bottle with an orange plastic nozzle which you can turn 'off' and 'on' and trigger spray. There is a double sided label on the front of the bottle which is green with the Mr Muscle in white lettering outlined with blue and orange. This makes the name stand out when you scan the shelves, it also has a cartoon style picture of Mr Muscle himself looking (as you may have guessed!) rather handsome and muscly!
On the reverse of the label it has the instructions for use and the usual warning about keeping the product out of children's reach and reminds you to wash your hands after use and not to breathe in the spray. It is also recommended that you use this product in a well ventilated area.

It is a green liquid with vinegar in it. It is meant to cut through grease and grime, quickly and effectively. The added vinegar is supposed to leave your windows streak free. It has got a slightly chemically smell to it but this isn't unpleasant and it soon goes away.
This product is very simple to use. All you have to do is follow the instructions on the reverse of the label (which you can see from looking through the green liquid from the back of the bottle). The instructions are: Turn the nozzle onto the 'on' position. Spray directly onto the surface that you wish to clean with full trigger strokes. Wipe with kitchen paper or a soft dry cloth. And then it reminds you to turn the nozzle onto the 'off' position with you have finished using it and keep the bottle stored upright. This isn't suitable for using on finished wood surfaces. It is recommended to be used for windows, mirrors and glass surfaces.
-- Price and Availability --
This is one of the well know window cleaners and I think most shops stock this (which sell cleaning and household products). Even my very small local, overpriced shop sell this. At the moment it is on special offer in Tesco for 99p (usually £1.98).
-- Overall Summary --
I like this product and I would buy this again (I do still tend to go for what is cheaper still so the price still decides for me). I like the way it does leave my windows looking clean, shiny and streak free, with little effort from me. I do find the results are best when I use kitchen paper to buff the windows dry afterwards. I would recommend this product.
Thanks for reading.
I hate having dirty windows in the house but I also hate cleaning them, though every week or so I like to clean them up with Mr Muscle Window Cleaner. I usually buy this window cleaner as I find that it is well priced and it works really well.
To use this window cleaner you simply spray a little onto a window or glass, and then wipe it away neatly with a bit of kitchen roll, you can also use a soft cloth, though I find sometimes that this leaves fluff behind, so I prefer to use kitchen roll. This window cleaner is very easy to use and it is easily wiped away to leave lovely clean and shiny windows.
I have found that the results that Mr Muscle Window Cleaner leaves are great, it does not leave any smears or smudges on the windows or glass and when they are finished, they look really lovely and shiny. This lasts for about a week in our house, though I do sometimes touch some of the windows up if the kids have got their sticky hands around the windows.
I think that this is one of the better window cleaners on the market as the good clean shiny windows are not really that hard to accomplish with this spray, normally when I use other window cleaners I get a scum around the edges where I haven't wiped the excess window cleaner off properly, though this never happens to me with this Mr Muscle.
You can buy Mr Muscle Window Cleaner for around £2 in Tesco, a bottle does quite a long time. I think that this is great value, a bottle usually lasts me about 2 months, which is quite good as I use this regularly in the house.
Overall I think that this is a great window cleaner that also works great on glass, it does not leave any smears or smudges on the windows, it is really easy to use and it does not break the bank. Overall I would give this window cleaner 5 out of 5 stars.
