Basic H window cleaner doesn't evaporate when you are wiping it, because there is no alcohol based ingredients in it. I takes a little bit more wiping to have the window dry, but it cleans just as well with out the amonia smell. I never really liked using commercial glass cleaners because the all smell funny, and when you spray it there are always fumes that are misted into the air. I always felt like I needed to wash my hands after cleaning the windows, I didn't want to have any of the chemicals in my body.
I use terry cloth to clean my windows. I am not a huge fan of paper towels, they aren't as good for the environment and they cost more money in the long run.
My daughter really likes her window markers, and I really don't. But at least I can easily clean it off my windows with Basic H2.
Here are her markers on my gate, the artwork is mine (not the best but okay).
The cleaning process has begun
Half done and it is working great.
Here is my reclaimed (from her markers) gate.
