Good advertisement on things that really do work.

Windex does work wonders as we use it all the time on our faucets and high gloss repainted surfaces gaining compliments all the time of wow, does that shine!

The old magic chef oven in our 72 International, still looks great thanks to Windex glass cleaner and all purpose cleaner.

For sure like the 60% of Airstreams still on the road, goes the same for "Windex makes it shine"!

Thanks for sharing.

It's nice to see more Airstreams in ads.

If you get a chance, watch "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". They show a few more ways to use windex.

Windex now comes in many "flavors". Be careful which one you pick to clean your Airstream with. The original Windex contains ammonia which does not react well with the aluminum.

Richard is right! Watch out for the ammonia on aluminum. If you think Windex is a good idea for removing bugs off the front of a polished Airstream.....DON'T!
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

Like I told my wife when we first started dating: it's amazing how many times you see Airstreams in commercials for other products once you start watching for them - insurance, trucks, music videos, cell phones, cleaners, video games, and those are just ones I can think off of the top of my head.

Any trailer I've seen after an all-guy trip ended up looking like a pig stye! If there was any Windex onboard, it got shoved into a cupboard or else someone mistakingly drank it.

Enjoyed the ad, though.
