I bought a bottle last Thursday. Even though I had an opportunity to try it before the purchase, I failed to do so because everyone was saying such nice things about it and I've never had an actual bad experience with a Meguiar's product before. Anyway, I tried it out Sunday and I have to say I am disappointed.
The product itself is great-- it cleans as well or better than anything I have ever used. For many household products I generally prefer the fragrance free stuff, but many Meguiars products have been fine. The scent of the Perfect Clarity was borderline not OK, I guess I can best describe it as too "artificial chemical" if that makes any sense, almost as if it was meant to mask an unpleasant smell rather than add a distinctive, pleasant scent to an otherwise neutral fragrance product.
I suppose if I used it sparingly in a well ventilated area, I could tolerate the scent. But the spray bottle is not acceptable. When I switched the nozzle from "Off" to "On" the product streamed out as something between "Stream" and "Spray'. This was unexpected, so I checked to see if maybe I had it on a "Stream" setting and checked for a "Spray" sending. But, no, the only settings are "Off" and "On."
The product does come out a just a bit closer to a spray than a narrow stream, but I prefer much more of a mist. It actually comes out strong enough to bounce off the glass a little, which is not ok when cleaning the interior glass. And if I lightly pull the trigger, it just kind of spurts out not very uniformly, with some dribbling near the nozzle. I plan to transfer it to an after market spray bottle, but I'm just saying I am disappointed that it comes in such a lousy bottle.
To solve the splashing issue then spraying the product, spray it onto the cloth you are using. To address the issue with the bottle squirting a little bit of product out, either leave the bottle in the spray position (I realize this may be impossible if you have children/animals), or try having the trigger somewhat depressed when you are finished. For example, push the trigger 1/4th of the way, then switch the nozzle to Off and release. This should pull in a bit of air, as opposed to spraying product out.
Edit: It's a bit silly that s**k is a blocked word. (Think along the lines of the word blow).
