Windshield Wizard is a cleaning device sold by Telebrands that claims to help you easily clean the inside of your car windshield and other hard-to-reach places. This is because they state Windshield Wizard has a pivoting head, a microfiber cloth bonnet, and an ergonomic handle that sprays water to help you get the surface squeaky clean.
What’s the “Magic” Behind Windshield Wizard?
Windshield Wizard is said to have a 13-inch handle with a pivoting head and a cleaning surface of 3 ¾ x 5 ¼ inches. They add that the handle is easy to grip and includes a reservoir that you can fill with tap water. It comes with 2 microfiber heads that are removable and can be cleaned in the washing machine.
To use Windshield Wizard, they instruct you to simply place against the inner surface of your glass windshield and slide. They claim the long handle and pivoted head allows you to easily reach difficult areas and the microfiber cloth will collect all the dirt. They add with the pump of your finger you can wet the surface with water, aiding in the cleanup. When you are done with the Windshield Wizard, they say you can fold it up neatly in the glove compartment and it will be ready for the next time you face a dirty windshield.
In addition to the car, they claim you can use Windshield Wizard on glass surfaces or mirrors anywhere in the home, using the same instructions as above. They state Windshield Wizard easily cuts through grease, can defog bathroom mirrors, is good for dusting, and can clean and polish steel without the use of any chemicals.
How Much is the Windshield Wizard Gonna Cost Me?
Windshield Wizard retails on the Telebrands website and in the informercial for $14.99 plus $6.99 shipping and handling for a total of $21.98. At the time of your order, you may add another Windshield Wizard for $9.99 more, making the total $31.97 for 2.
Windshield Wizard and Telebrands Return Policy
Windshield Wizard comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, but hold on a second: this means that you can get your initial $14.99 back but not any of the additional fees. If you do decide you’d like to return it, you need to send it back to them within 30 days at your expense (they suggest using UPS ground or some other method that can be tracked). While they say you don’t need to include the invoice with your return, you must include a written “detailed” explanation as to why you are sending it back, or your request could be rejected.
Bottom Line: Is Windshield Wizard a Good Way to Clean Your Windshield?
Cleaning the interior of your windshield can be a pain (although it’s not as difficult as they make it out in the commercial to be) so we can see why a product like Windshield Wizard could be handy.
We did find a few reviews of Windshield Wizard on Amazon.com where it has a 3.9 rating average from 11 reviews. Those that rave about it say it’s a simple, convenient tool, while the few negatives complain that the microfiber cloths are thin and the product feels cheaply made.
Alternatives to Windshield Wizard
If you need to clean the inside of your car, you can very easily use newspaper with Windex, water, or even vinegar – along with a little elbow grease. A list of 13 weird tricks to clean your car includes using baby wipes, feminine hygiene napkins, and water mixed with household ammonia.
Also, here’s another windshield cleaner we found that’s very similar to Windshield Wizard sold by Amazon and has a similar rating (3.7 stars) but 100 reviews; however it doesn’t have the water reservoir.
In other words, in spite of how they present it in the commercial, Windshield Wizard is hardly revolutionary. While it may be convenient, we suggest looking for it at your local Target, CVS, or other store that has an “As Seen On TV” aisle. Telebrands makes 90% of its sales through retail stores like these and you’ll avoid the shipping fees and long wait times.
