For 40 years Lawrence Plate Glass, in Lawrence, Mass., made small batches of window cleaner to sell in its showrooms. The product developed a passionate following -- passionate enough, at least, that the company's marketing director thought it could do well on its own. Spun off last winter, Clear Vue Products is expected to have $500,000 in sales this year -- more than in the past nine years combined.
