    Pinnacle Crystal Clear vs. Wolfgang Perfekt Vision Glass Cleaners

    Has anyone tried both? I've searched google but can't really find anything that compares the two. Price is the same, both seem to leave somewhat of a repellent type finish, both has great reviews. Only difference I can see is that the Wolfgang seems to need to second wipe with a fine mist applied based on the instructions online

    I don't have any experience with those but I wouldn't over think glass cleaner. Meguiars glass concentrate is $22.99 a gallon and with the dilution ratio will make 11 gallons.

    Cleans well and smells great. Doesnt leave any protection but that isn't a huge deal.

    This.

    Good ol' Sprayway glass cleaner (found here on AG, or even at your local grocery store) works wonders. It's all I use.

    Re: Pinnacle Crystal Clear vs. Wolfgang Perfekt Vision Glass Cleaners

    The Pinnacle seems to have a repellent in it, making for more wiping if too much is applied, but making it great if used in the correct amount.
    I have tried the Wolfgang version and don't recall there being a repellent in it, or not.
    I would use the Wolfgang for the inside, and Pinnacle for the outside, or Pinnacle for rear seats where slobbery dogs may reside from time to time.

    Re: Pinnacle Crystal Clear vs. Wolfgang Perfekt Vision Glass Cleaners

    I think most people keep searching for the "next best" glass cleaner because they:

    (A) do not properly wash and/or machine polish their glass beforehand. Or......

    (B) use a cheap/wrong kind of towel for removal.

    JMO, but starting with a properly prepped glass, then using towels actually MADE for glass is a huge time saver.

    Iíve tried many different kinds of towels from MF to huck towels to cotton. None have ever wowed me the first time I used them.

    Re: Pinnacle Crystal Clear vs. Wolfgang Perfekt Vision Glass Cleaners

    If OP washes outside windows windows regularly and don’t plan on using any other rain repellent, stick to Pinnacle or WG. If you don’t care about repellent or already use a glass coating or Rain-X, go with Meg’s or any other cheap one found on AG. They are all fine glass cleaners, as mentioned there’s no need to overthink this one aspect of detailing.
