    Default Winsol Super Slip

    Finance-iT
    Well, I broke down and ordered a couple of bottles of Winsol Super Slip from WCR with my recent order of supplies.

    I had been reluctant to buy Winsol Super Slip because it's not as concentrate as the other brands I've used meaning that I'd have to use much more of it per mix of solution.

    I've tested the Winsol over the past couple of days and I have to say I like it just as well as any other brand of slip or glide that I've ever used.

    I have to measure out much more Winsol Super Slip per gallon or per 32 oz. bottle than I did with other more concentrated brands but as it turns out I'm finding that this is quite alright.

    I'm finding it much easier to get a more accurate measurement of slip with the Winsol stuff than with the more concentrated brands. For me that's a definite plus.

    And even though you have to use more of it that's ok too because you get twice as much Winsol Super Slip for about the same price as you do with the more concentrated brands of slip. So price per oz. is about the same as with the other brands.

    To sum it all up, I'll be ordering slip from WCR instead of that other store from now on.

    Chris, I think Glisten is a house brand of soap at a certain store. They have a lubricant that is called "*** Slick".

    Im glad these subjects came up! Ive been looking at the winsol products this week. I use glisten now but decided to try the winsol glass cleaner when Im near the bottom of the bottle... Unless someone can convince me that it would be worth my while to add some to my order before it is shipped out tommorrow.

    How is the is the Winsol APC-100 ?

    de and you have to use 3 times the amount. I prefer paying less, and carrying less around.I would like to know how it compares to prevent drying. Probably the same, I think it's all ethylene glycol (anti-freeze/deodorant).

    Isn't Glisten repackaged titan-glass-gleam-3.html">GG3?

    Who knows? I've never tried it myself. It may be better than GG4 with added glide/slip/slick and much cheaper.

    If you try it let us know how it goes.

    We got a sample a few months back and Mrs Squeegee used it until it was half gone. She didn't like it at all. She said it just didn't "feel" right when squeegeeing. Needless to say we went back to GG4.

    I've tried it out. Didn't really like it much. It's hard to explain. One problem I had was it didn't seem to keep the window wet as long as using GG4.
