No streaks, no stains, just the smell of ink lead. Today, no one does this, because various means for crushing glass have appeared. These are solutions with different compositions determined by the specialization of the product: for windows and frames, for mirrors, for TV monitors and computers, and others. The difference lies in the effect obtained: in some cases, it is necessary to remove dust and minor organic traces (fingerprints, edible fat, insect marks), in others – to protect the surface from static electricity and prevent intense settling of dust particles, in the third – to remove old dirt and traces soot, soot.
