Secret weapons. I have noticed throughout many projects that whenever mirrors or a glass shower enclosures are installed, the installer always uses a spray foam to clean the glass. And oh how it sparkles! I have talked many a contractor into leaving behind a near empty can for me to test drive. However, many of these products are commercial grade cleaners and are either not available to the public or do not have a user friendly scent.
After trying many over the years, this one has emerged as my favorite. I bought it on a whim simply because I liked the can. No streaking and it has a really fresh clean scent. 20/10 rule: Less than $2.50 and mere minutes to clean any glass surface, because you won't have to do it twice!
This jar of yummy goo is not only a favorite snack, but also has magical powers. I swear. It will take off the sticky residue left behind from tape or price stickers on glass, brass, copper and other hard non-pourous surfaces! I learned this trick more than a decade ago from the goddess of all things Shabby and Chic, Rachel Ashwell. It has been a lifesaver for me. As a migraine sufferer, certain smells can be a trigger. There are plenty of chemicals that work just as well, but are quite toxic and I avoid them whenever possible.
20/10 rule: No time or money spent here...it's already in your pantry!
