How we rate glass cleaners

Our review compares glass cleaners on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which glass cleaner they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 1,541 Australians for their feedback on the glass cleaner(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last 12 months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their glass cleaner brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a glass cleaner brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Effectiveness: the glass cleaner was effective in cleaning windows and mirrored surfaces (i.e. removing build-up and smudges, etc.).
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and performance of the glass cleaner.
  • Scent: the glass cleaner has a pleasant odour that matches the description (i.e. lemon, etc.).
  • Packaging convenience: the glass cleaner was easy to open, use and store.
  • Ease of use: the glass cleaner was easy to use, with sufficient instructions provided.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  1. Coles Ultra
  2. Windex
  3. Earth Choice
  4. ALDI Power Force
  5. Ajax
  6. Strike
  7. Glitz
