NON FOOD!! Cheap alternative to store bought Windex. I keep a spray bottle in each bathroom for quick and easy mirror and counter clean ups. I wipe the mirrors with crumpled newspaper instead of paper towel to achieve a lint free shine!!

This worked great. I used the 91% alcohol, and it worked great.

Good cleaning alternative. I cut it down to use 1 T ammonia, 1 c. rubbing alcohol, 1/2 t. Dawn dish soap, and 1 c. water. Didn't want to make too much if I didn't like it. Very good for basic clean up in the kitchen and bathroom.
