It is advised to wear safety gear like goggles, masks, or gloves when using window cleaners.

Choosing Window Cleaners (Buying tips)
Multipurpose use: Choose a window cleaner that you can also use for removing grease and dust from your car windshield, kitchen countertop, bathroom tiles, and television screen. Just be careful when handling it, as a multipurpose window cleaner can contain harmful substances like methanol, ethanol, and ammonia.
Consistency: If you do not want your window cleaner to run down your window and onto the wooden ledges, choose a gel window cleaner that is thick enough to stick on vertical glass surfaces.
