Does It Work? Windows, Meet Glass Wizard

The manufacturer of the Glass Wizard promises their product will give you the edge you need to clean your windows. But does it work?Anita Ammon got right to work with the Glass Wizard in her home.

First, she read the directions, assembled the product and tried it on her front door.

So far, so good. It cleaned the inside OK. I'm gonna attempt the outside now, where the work is more challenging," Ammon said.

For the outside, Ammon switched the microfiber bonnet for the mesh bonnet, as the directions suggest. According to the package, the mirofiber bonnet is supposed to work better on removing bugs and other kinds of built-up grime.

"It says, 'Apply slightly more pressure to remove more residue,'" Robinson said to Ammon.

Ammon followed the directions and switched back to the microfiber bonnet to get that streak-free shine that the box promises. She didn't give up and even worked at the corners, using the special angle design that the manufacturer boasts about on the package, Robinson said.

"I see, in the corner at the top, streaks on the bottom [of the surface], and spots on the bottom. It didn't clean it all even with the mesh attachment," Ammon said.

So, how does Ammon rate the Glass Wizard?

User-friendliness: C
Performance: D
Value: D
Overall satisfaction: D

The Glass Wizard retails for $9.95. But Ammon said she's not buying it.

"I definitely was not as happy as the picture of the man on the box [who was] cleaning windows. It took a lot more elbow grease then a regular paper towel and glass cleaner would take care of," Ammon said.
