Anyone pick up a small sample bottle of the glass/plexi cleaner being advertised at the Maxim Glue booth in Atlanta?

I love this stuff. You can use it on anything: plexi, reg glass, Museum, and even (gasp!) Image Perfect....should you happen to have a piece of that lying around. At my stage, I don't care about saving pennies, I want convenience. (Don't even know how it compares with pumice dust and distilled water.) Repeat: I love this stuff, and the cute little sample bottles are terrific for smaller hands. Can't believe I said that.

Sounds wonderful. You say you get it from Maxim Glue?

I have been getting Sprayway cleaner from my local supplier, It works well, has no ammonia, and smells like Sunday School. It just doesn't seem like a proper frame shop without that glass cleaner smell.

It's named Ultra-Lite and comes in a concentrate form which you mix with distilled water. Actually, the name of the company selling it right now is Frame Specialties in Elkhart, Indiana. 800-777-3165

Jeannette, I tried to remove my atg tape from a piece of plexi and it doesn't come off. But then, none of my glass cleaners removes it so I guess I can't be too disappointed. We use Speciality tapes and they are very sticky. Do you have a glass cleaner that takes atg up?

Lighter fluid takes ATG up. Even off the face of an "real" photo. Been afraid to try a inkjet.

Lighter fluid also flashes fast enough to nominally disturb most frame finishes.

I don't have anything to remove the atg but patience and ST. Louie Blue. I just thought you found a new one that might.

It probably depends on what you've been eating.
