    Quoted from Arcade:

    Been using this from Walmart for years.
    Works great and no ammonia. Only $2.00 a can and it lasts forever.[quoted image]

    Best glass cleaner ever.

    Quoted from NoQuarters:

    How about Stoner Invisibleglass Cleaner ?
    https://www.invisibleglass.com/products

    I found on their fact sheet that it is amonnia free and safe on auto tints so I think it is ok.

    ( I have several cans of this that I use on my regular pin glass and for my cars - hence my initial question )

    Thanks for the suggestions of other products too.

    Same stuff I’ve been using for years on my hobbit (and other games without invisiglass).

    But then I'd have to go to Walmart so I'll just stick with Sparkle.

    I agree. Lol.
    Technically I get it from my dad who happens to work for a supply company.
    But since most people don’t have that luxury I listed Walmart.
    But Home Depot sells it as well.

    Buy a small spray bottle, fill it with a 50/50 mix of ipa and water. Can’t get much cheaper than that, lasts a long time.

    Someone I know recommends using Novus 1 to clean invisoglass. Good or bad?

    #58 10 months ago

    Yes, a little alcohol to get the nasty stuff off. A little breath huff and elbow grease with a good cloth does the rest. I like Wypalls L40. They are disposable, but very reusable. I use it on art framing glass and plexi daily.

    Novus is not a cleaner, it's abrasive.

    IPA?

    Quoted from Lermods:

    IsoPropyl alcohol, aka rubbing alcohol.

    Ah, gotcha! I figured it had to be an alcohol of some kind (and not an India Pale Ale) but hadn't heard that acronym before.

    Hahahaha....I thought the same thing. Must be because it’s friday evening and I need a beer.

    Thanks - I picked up a can of this today. Does a nice job of cleaning, but it's also SUPER PERFUMEY! I sprayed only a short burst to try it out on a game and my garage gameroom (with the doors open) still stinks an hour later. WHOA!

    I think I'll just stick with the 50% distilled water/50% isopropyl alcohol/few drops of Dawn detergent mix I've been using for a couple years now. Not as handy since you have to mix it, but no real smell either and it cleans just fine.

    That's good to know. I hate stuff that leaves behind a heavy scent. I won't even burn scented candles in my home.

    Quoted from planters49:

    The cleaning instructions from jersey jack actually says to use Sparkle

    Also states you can use Windex with vinegar.

    Novus 3 and high speed buffer!

    What about ammonia free Windex?

    #68 10 months ago

    I just purchased some of this myself

    #69 10 months ago
    Quoted from DHG:

    As I previously mentioned, JJP instructions say Windex Vinegar works.

    I have another question... Is anyone using microfiber cloths from Amazon Basics?

    I find that they leave these little hairline marks all over the glass when you wipe the glass down.

    Wipe the glass with a completely dry towel it will take those marks up. Sounds crazy but it works.

    This. Mixed some up in a Home Depot spray bottle a few years ago after I got my first sheet of PDI and have been using it with a microfiber cloth ever since. I use it on all my games and I have only gone through about half of the original bottle. Works great and lasts forever.

    what kind of microfibers are you guys using? Anyone know of any bulk deals to be had?

    That's what I use on mine. Works well.

    I buy the Kirkland brand from Costco, works great for all things pinball.

    Quoted from Damien:

    I use microfiber towels that are specifically labeled for glass cleaning such as these:

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Real-Clean-16x16-Premium-Microfiber-Blue-Window-Glass-Cleaning-Towel-Cloths-for-Home-Auto-Office-Electronics-Streak-Free-and-No-Lint-Left-Behind/170566365

    Their fabric texture is different than general purpose microfiber cleaning towels (which I also use for pinball cleaning/waxing purposes). They're more expensive too, but they don't leave lint or fibers behind.

    Yep, those are the ones I use.

    How do you guys clean the microfiber cloths? Just stick them in the washing machine with Tide (or similar) or is the regular detergent bad for coated glass?

    Regular wash and dry (on their own though) per instructions with/on cloths.

    Be sure not to use a liquid softener in the washer or a dryer sheet like Bounce with microfiber (or any towels, really). They'll become less absorbent and leave streaks.
