The "Original" Windex Glass Cleaner...It REALLY does do it all!

I occasionally fry food in my home but have unfortunately not yet conquered heating the oil correctly without it "popping" sending splatters all over my stove as well as the ceramic tiles behind it, the wooden cupboards above it, the refrigerator next to it and the surrounding walls and ceiling. In the past I have tried every "grease fighting" product I've seen advertised.They have ALL fallen short! Tonight is the LAST time I grab my Windex bottle as a "last" result! It has time and time again proven to be the ONLY cleaning product that actually works on dissolving and cutting through grease spots! Funny thing is though, I've never even tried any of the "new" Windex products,....the Original Glass Cleaner does the job all on it's own! I'm sold and will never spend another penny on any other "grease fighting" product!

I have used Windex forever. The last couple of bottles have left streaks everywhere. Even the Windex that is sold on cloths in packages does this. (So I know it is not my paper towels). Has anything changed in the formula? Could it just be Windex sold in California? We have lots of regulations here prohibiting this and that. Please help. A couple of years ago I would have given the product an excellent review. Thank you!

Not the original

By campingramps

from Garner, NC, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I remember years ago that Windex used to be the go to product for clean car windows. Spray it on and wipe it off with no streaks. Not anymore. I don't know what you changed but I spent 15 minutes trying to clean my car windows and they are still streaked. It is so bad that I have to be careful driving tonight because the streaking causes so much glare. I will find something else tomorrow. You need to go back to the formula you had 25 years ago which worked as well as your commercials state now. I have tried some of the other Windex products and they are worse. Forget profits for once and make a quality product again!

Streaks and Film

By Lynn S.

from Houston, TX, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

This product is no where near working successfully in cleaning windows. To my disappointment the home remedies that I had used before trying this worked 100% better. No matter how I approach the cleaning, it just leaves streaks and film. In years past Windex was used and it seemed to have worked better than the current bottle. Biggest disappointment is that I just bought a one gallon refill!

Streaks, streaks, and smears, smears!!

By Chris

from Loveland, CO

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Not the product I remember using for years. Interesting to read several review saying the same things, and you have answered so kindly, but never given answer. Have you changed the formula? If not, why is it streaking and smearing when it never used to. For years we used Windex and a clean paper towel to clean the polyester surfaces on fine grand pianos... this is not the same!!

I use this product a lot at a care facility somewhere in California, because it works really well. I take turns using it with my friends. Thumbs up for volunteers everywhere.

Very poor product, but was my go-to for years

By Doug

from White Lake Charter Township, MI, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I just tried to clean normal interior film off the windshield of my wife's car. The result was some residual film after I tried to use this product twice. Based upon recent experience with Windex Original on other cars I own with the same poor results, I'm done using this product. This has been my go-to for years, but I give up! I don't care about cost, I'll find something that works the way Windex did in the past and I'll buy it.

Product has changed in past couple of years

By streaky

from Alberta, Canada

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I have been using Windex original consistently for the past 40 years. It did provide the performance I came to expect and rely on up until the past year or two. It now serves as nothing but frustration as it does not produce a streak free finish on glass or mirrors anymore. It seems to have lost its grease cutting ability and just provides endless streaking. I will be seeking other alternatives.

Was this product changed in the last year or so?

By Disgusted Customer

from Alberta, Canada

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I've used this product for many years and was very happy with it. But in the last year I find it streaks and leaves a dull finish. At first I thought maybe it had froze during shipment, but then I repurchased it several times and it still not the same has it use to be. AND don't tell me I'm using it wrong or it's the operator because it is NOT. I've also read the reviews and I'm not the only one complaining about this product. I gave it a very low rating because I KNOW it use to be a good product. Something has changed whether it's the way it's produced or the ingredients. But I will not be purchasing any more of this. I can do better with vinegar and water and it's not has costly and I don't have to waste time trying to get it to not streak or dull up within a day or two..

So? Did you change the formula?

By KT

from BC

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Lots of people have posed that same question in their reviews. Is there no answer forthcoming? I've used Windex for years and never had such a problem with streaky windows as I do now. I cleaned one window 3 times today with poor results. Did you change the formula? If so, I suggest you listen to your loyal customers and change it back PDQ!

Windex Blue

By Hopeless

from Fresno, CA, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I've always thought Windex Blue was the very best, however the last few times I've used it on my bathroom mirror it DOES streak. I'm very disappointed and have to go over it time and time again. It cleans it but definitely streaks it as well. Have you changed the ingredients? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Windex is now streaky

By Huntress

from Melbourne VIC, Australia

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Like many others I have been using Windex for years and have been happy with it. Recently, however, it seems to be leaving a streaky film. I use the same kind of lint free cloth as ever so I can only conclude the formula has changed. I note that others are reporting the same problem with the film. Has the formula changed?

Windex Original no longer works

By Rosie

from Chicago

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I used Windex Original on my glass top kitchen table and all I could see was a smeary haze. I tried it two more times and it was still hazy. The forth time instead of a paper towel I used a clean cotton dish rag - still smears. I had been cleaning both top and undersides of the table. When I tried windex on a nearby window, it seemed to work fine. I wonder if the previous cleaner had left a residual? My husband who has more muscle is going to reclean the glass top & bottom. If microfiber cloth is required,you should put that on the label. I clean my table 3 or 4 times a day - I NEED SOMETHING THAT WORKS.

It is not the product: it is the operator

By danotherestorer

from Columbus, OH, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

It works as good as it always has. It is probably operator error. When cleaning mirrors or gleasswork, Use a squeegee and unger. When polishing, mist a hint on a piece of rolltowel and wipe in long strokes in the same direction. Works just fine. Most people that think they know how to clean really don't!

Cloudy mirrors before open house

By S2011

from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I have always used Windex and growing up so have my parents, but lately the mirrors have a cloudiness to them. I though it was because I bought the Ammonia-Free, so then I also bought the Original with Ammonia and it still leaves my mirrors cloudy. Not happy when I am cleaning my house before I have a open house in a few hours.

Use newspaper not paper towels to clean glass

By Margo

from New York

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I've been using windex for years and pleased with results. However, in more recent years the product left my windows with a cloudy film. Then I read that paper towels were the culprit. I now use newspaper and my windows are clear. It should be noted on the bottle not to use paper towels.

Something is wrong

By nap

from Ohio

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I am 67 years old and windex is what I have always used as did my mother. I was so disappointed with the original windex. It left cloudy windows and did not smell like the original. I thought maybe you had changed the formula. I have since found that other woman have the same issues of cloudy windows. Was there an issue or is this what the product will continue to be? I do not want to say goodbye. Thank you

Windex Advanced

By everright

from Bakersfield, CA, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

This is the most useless product that Johnson Company ever produced. My dog licking on the surfaces will get things cleaner. Not only will it not clean, it streaks and does not clean at all. It is the biggest mistake that I have ever purchased.

Disappointed

By Pripod

from Chicago, IL, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I have used the Windex glass cleaner for years and year on various surfaces such as mirrors, windows and glass top dining table. But this time when I bought it, it is doing nothing but leaving streaks. My dining table looks dirty no matter how much I clean it and it is not making sense to me. Has something about the product changed? or is it the particular bottle? This was my go to and now I am having to go research other products. so disappointed

no longer a good glass cleaner

By Mel

from Undisclosed

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Windex used to be the best but whatever they have done to the formula has now made it horrible. It leaves a film on all the windows, mirrors, and glass table tops. What happened? Waste of my money. Will not buy and do not recommend.

Nothing but streaks

By EH

from Columbia, MD, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

I have used Windex for 30 years and now I am at a loss. In the last month I have been trying to use it on glass and it did nothing but leave streaks no matter what paper towel I used. I am very disappointed that they have taken a standard and ruined it. I will be changing products. Have no choice.

Very Disappointed

By Roteflea

from Boca Raton, FL, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Having used Windex for years , I noticed in the last year or so, a VERY different result when I clean my windows. I have had to go over them 2-3 times and still they have a streaky film not seen before. What's going on? I have now resorted to light soap with a lemon water rinse and my windows sparkle. You have lost a very loyal customer and I am not alone, though I can now spend that money on lemons !

Did You Change Ingredients?

By Laura

from Taylorville, IL, USA

Comments about S.C. JOHNSON Windex® Original (00128):

Windex doesn't clean mirrors, glass like it used to. Leaves streaks. Works somewhat better than last brand tried so bought again. Got home and it won't spray. Nozzle front won't turn at all and nothing else works to open it. I shouldn't have to buy spray bottle for something that comes in a spray bottle.
