To measure amount of cleaner delivered per spray.
Three clean beakers were pre-weighed. The selected cleaner was then held directly above the opening of the beaker and sprayed into each beaker for 2 seconds. The beakers were then reweighed and delivery amounts were calculated. A second test was conducted while holding the aerosol can upright and tipping the beaker to collect the cleaning product

|Cleaner||Beaker||Initial Wt (g)||Final Wt (g)||Cleaner Wt (g)||Avg Cleaner Wt. (g)|
|Foaming Glass Cleaner Clorox||1||101.5675||102.4545||0.8870||0.6392|
|Foaming Glass Cleaner Windex||1||105.5278||106.2059||0.6781||0.6327|
Success Rating:Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
Both systems delivered cleaner at very similar rates, although Foaming Glass Cleaner Windex delivering slightly more product than the Clorox product did.
