To evaluate aerosol glass/surface cleaners for vertical adhesion to glass surface
for 1-2 seconds onto the surface. A timer was started to determine the time the cleaner took to travel 1 foot (30 cm). A second observation was made to see how much movement was achieved for the products for a total of 2 minutes. At the end of the 2 minutes the distance traveled by the product was recorded.
For products that need more than 1 minute to travel the 30 cm, time will be recorded as greater than 2 minutes and receive a score of excellent. For products that run down the entire length of the window (4 feet) in less than the 2 minutes, the distance were recorded as greater than 4 feet and will receive a score of poor.
Observations were made using the following:
|Time Rating (sec)||Rating||Distance Rating (foot)||Rating|
Both products had excellent vertical cling as determined by the length of time needed to travel one foot and how far the sprayed product traveled in 2 minutes. The table lists the time and distances for each product.
|Product||Time 1 ft.||Rating||Distance in 2 mins.||Rating|
|Jenny Glass Cleaner||>120 secs||1||15 inches||1|
|>120 secs||1||6.5 inches||<1|
|>120 secs||1||5.5 inches||<1|
|Rejoice Glass Cleaner||>120 secs||1||4 inches||<1|
|>120 secs||1||11.5 inches||1|
|>120 secs||1||11 inches||<1|
Success Rating:Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
Brand Buzz Jenny Glass Cleaner and Brand Buzz Rejoice Glass Cleaner both performed excellent on the glass cling test. Both Brand Buzz products (Jenny Glass Cleaner & Rejoice Glass Cleaner) had similar rates for the distance traveled in 2 minutes’ test. Both received a score of 0.67, meaning both products have excellent distance rating.
