Review of Windex cleaning products
An SC Johnson brand, Windex was first established back in 1933 and claims to leave a perfect streak-free shine. From an eco-angle, Windex bottles are made from 50% post-consumer recycled material and are fully recyclable. Windex’s mantra is ‘Don’t stand for dirty’, so let’s see how the cleaning range lives up to that core value.

Should I use Windex cleaning products?
Windex offers a fairly small line of cleaning products that doesn’t cover products for specific cleaning needs beyond the basics. There is also only a small variety of fragrances on offer. Nevertheless Windex lists many uses for its products, from everyday touch-ups to shining up electronic screens. Most of its products are also designed for easy use, which you may find more convenient to handle when cleaning. There are many online reviews and ratings – such as ours – that you may like to check out before buying Windex to see if it will help with your particular cleaning situation.
