Better Bio Solutions' Clear Reflections...
Unlike most glass cleaners that allow residue and oils to redeposit on the glass, window, and mirror surface, Clear Reflections breaks down unwanted residue and oils and puts them in a colloidal solution for safe and efficient removal. This product is a safe, deep penetrating, bio-based liquid and it is the only glass cleaner on the market that will not etch your polished marble. Clear reflections also works great for light cleaning of grease on all stainless steel appliances, stove tops and hoods.

The stone industry is finding out that most of the so-called green products on the market are etching polished marble, limestone, and travertine. You see, most of the green products actually have a pH of 5-6 which is a mild acid. A pH of 7, or what is called "neutral", is what is recommended for natural stone cleaning by all stone companies and cleaning manufacturers. So please keep in mind that just because the label says that it is a cucumber-based product that is safe for you, that doesn't mean it is necessarily safe for your stone.
