CarChem Clarity Glass Cleaner....

....or something else in the bottle? 1st use of it today (normally just use their normal one) on the 'guinea pig' coffee table....sprayed on, wiped off, glass still covered in fingerprints. Got the old stuff out, spray & wipe, prints all gone. Sprayed the new one again on a different piece (3 tier, 2 swivel thingy) and same result....no different but christ it was left slick, so much so that the rubber feet on the coasters no longer grip the glass! And boy....talk about shine!! Now, me being me noticed a different odour to the new one, somewhat 'alcohol'.... I had a sniff (maybe a bit bigger than I shouldíve!) and damn near passed out and now have a banging head! Wiped my iPhone with it after cleaning the screen and I say, itís super slippery and looks brand new....and finger prints come off with a single wipe of a sleeve now but as itís now like ice, I canít swipe to open things up...not that I can see anything after inhaling the stuff!!

Ummmmmm......I guess I am....never had a glass cleaner smell like this before....itís overpowering!! Wonder if they put the wrong labels on some IPA? Iíll pop down B&Q later and open up some IPA and have a whiff of that, see if itís similar in odour.....Iíve got a bottle of 99% hooch direct from the 'distillery' via a friendly Irish lorry driver and this cleaner could trounce that I reckon!

I understand this is now fixed (via email) LC161 is a super hydrophobic sealant as well as a cleaner for automotive glass.
