    Default Oven Cleaner?

    Free SHipping @ $299
    I remember when my father has his windows cleaned earlier this year and the guy had to go buy oven cleaner, what all is oven cleaner good for and is it safe for wood and other frames?

    It was probably for the video near the stove or the bbq. Its safe for frames but its bad for you. any degreaser will work as well and smell much better

    It will compromise the IG seal on the windows.

    Waste of time. I had a guy come help me a few years back from another company on a hw job. He ranted and raved how well oven cleaner would work. I tried it and it did work, but no were near as good as a powder. Now the powered are good, but last year we bought some one restore. My employees came back ranting and raving about how amazing it is. Spray on, wipe off, spots gone. That easy. But the one did say she would have liked to had a mask as the smell was a little rough for her. Also she got some on her pants, bleached the hell out of them.

    Sometimes its better to buy the product that is designed to do what you are looking to do. 1 gallon of oven cleaner on google is $40 to $60 bucks. 1 gallon of one restore $30 and change, diluted 2:1 your getting 2 gallons. We worked the whole year with one gallon. The cost is nothing compared to the customers happiness.

    I totally agree ray. It's interesting to see how people use different products to clean glass but I would rather use a PROFESSIONAL window cleaners application. I'll leave the oven cleaner for ovens

    Folks would use oven cleaner for aluminum screen burn. As Tony posted, it's bad for IGU seals and will stain other surfaces.

    Back in the day oven cleaner was the bomb! A trade secret only window cleaners knew about. Well times have changed. Oven cleaner is obsolete. haha

    Is there a problem you're trying to solve?

    BTW, IGU = Insulated Glass Unit (dual-pane window.)

    I was going to say something along those lines... "modern technology," huh?
