Price:  $10 Buy 1 Get 1 Free. S&H for each:  $6.99 x 2 = $13.98. Includes 4 microfiber bonnets, 2 12-inch microfiber towels, 2 spray bottles, 2 pouches.
Price:  $14.95 + $7.95 S&H. Also included for and additional $7.95 S&H: 19 oz. Can of Invisible Glass Cleaner, an Additional Large Head, the Mini-Head, 2 Microfiber Bonnets and our 2-in-1 Microfiber Washing and Tool Storage Bag

Similarities & Differences

For starters, both are similar in function. Both are designed to clean off windshields, side-view mirrors, rear-view mirrors...and both are versatile enough for home windows and mirrors.

But which has the longer...'handle'

TELEBrand's is proud to boast that the handle on their Windshield Wonder is 16 inches. The Invisible Glass Reach & Clean isn't so boastful, but they do point out that the handle can extend onto the end of mops & brooms to reach high up windows. Advantage:  Invisible Glass.

Does the shape matter?

The Windshield Wonder goes with the classic rectangular shape. The Invisible Glass Reach & Clean goes with a more triangular look to reach deeper into corners. It really looks like the two companies split a home plate at a baseball park:  Telebrands took the meat, Invisible Glass took the back. Having tried to clean the corners of my windshield with a Windshield Wonder, I would like to see if it is easier with an elongated corner. Advantage:  Invisible Glass

Windshield Wonder only uses a little container of water to spray on the pad to get the smears. Invisible Glass Reach & Clean comes with a full 19oz can of their best-selling "Invisible Glass," to do the job, plus an additional cover to wipe streaks. Problem:  who's going to carry  19oz can of spray in their glove compartment/center console to clean the windshield. Sure, keep it with your cleaning tools when it's the weekend and it's time to wash your car, but not on a Thursday night after work and you have to drive into sundown for your homeward comute. Advantage:  TELEBrands.

But that's not a storage pouch

TELEBrands claims the Windshield Wonder comes with a storage pouch. The "pouch" only covers the head of the device. That's not a storage, that's a golf club cover. But, Invisible Shield Reach & Clean doesn't even offer that. Advantage:  TELEBrands.

But is the price right?

TELEBrands offers a classic 2 for 1 special on Windshield Wonder. $10. But the trick is that you pa $6.99 S&H for each, which comes out to $13.98. Total price (not assuming tax):  $23.98. Invisible Glass Reach & Clean Tool Is available for $14.95 plus $7.95 S&H for a total of $22.90. One dollar cheaper on the price, but you only get one Tool for the amount. Advantage  Telebrands

Yellow or Green

Since I like blue, I'm going with its complimentary color:  Yellow. Advantage:  Invisible Glass.

Review - Windshield Wonder & Invisible Glass Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

TELEBrands Windshield Winder got their typical, " I didn't know about the second S&H ," complaint, but we found another one that was rather amusing:  people were getting shipped deluxes instead of the basic one (found in the upsell process after initial online purchase). Sweet, that's like getting extra boo berries in your cereal.

Invisible Glass Reach & Clean's record looked as spotless as the cleaned windshields they advertise. That might also be because they're a little later to the market.

No glaring problems aside from the typical that we found. Advantage:  neither.

So, Who wins the deathmatch?

Honestly? We'd have to go with the original - Windshield Wonder. Two for 1, easy to store, and I've had years of the "into the sun," commute. A little quick clean from Windshield Wonder has been helpful. But, we won't discredit the Invisible Shield by any stretch of the imagination. Not all of us are tall enough to play point guard in the NBA (like a couple of us are). The extra long handle would help many, many people.

But, it's not up to us; its up to you. Let us know what you think!

Who do you think wins?

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
