Some good glass and surface cleaners include Mr. Clean Multi-Surface Antibacterial Spray, Spic and Span Cinch Glass & Multi-Surface Cleaner, and Windex Multi-Surface Vinegar Cleaner, according to Better Homes and Gardens. According to the magazine's tests, these cleaners offer a quick and convenient method of dealing with common spills.
As of 2015, the Mr. Clean spray is tied for least expensive spray in the Better Homes and Gardens trial. It is effective at cleaning glass and many kitchen surfaces, including laminate, painted walls and stainless steel. The spray breaks down crayon marks and includes a sanitizer and disinfectant. As with other disinfectant sprays, it is essential to follow all label directions to ensure the product kills the germs.
Cinch is particularly effective at removing grime from stainless steel. It also works well on laminate and countertops. The label directions recommend spot testing the spray before using it. While the label promises it is effective at cleaning car windows and other surfaces, the Better Homes and Gardens testing showed it leaves some dirt behind on painted walls.
The Windex cleaner is also effective on many surfaces found in the typical kitchen, though it is more likely to leave streaks on glass. The label claims versatility for the cleaner on surfaces ranging from plastic to porcelain. Although it contains vinegar, it does not leave a vinegar smell.
