MY REVIEW: Greenwald's Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner

Product Description Greenwald's Glass & Hard Surface cleaner is a unique entrant to the market for 4 reasons:

2. It saves money. Because when purchasing either the kit or the refills (note: this promotion is for the "kit" that also contains a 6 pack of refills) it's 30-70% less than competing products.
