Which Glass Cleaner Do You Prefer?

Bedtime Under Glass. (The New York Times, 12/11/2013)

Was wondering about the bathroom location.   At a little less than 1,800 square feet, the scale of the Glass House is modest enough that bullet-point highlights can be registered with ease. There is the elegant glass envelope itself, and the pure symmetry that, flouting strict modernist tenets, Mies van der Rohe derided as decorative. There is the cylindrical brick service core housing a spartan bathroom and hearth.
