    Some of you know this...many dont.

    Mix in Spray bottle:

    30% plain Vinegar
    30% isopropyl rubbing alcohol
    40% Water

    vary to your particular needs

    I've always had my vinegar & water to clean windows etc.
    adding the alcohol changes it entirely.
    I've used this new formula for a month now.
    Works great on all surfaces-from glass-chrome-china-tile.

    This one is a winner folks.

    Now all I use is that and the Teflon clorox product as a finishing surfactant.

    This formula works 4 or 5 times better than any off the shelf supermarket cleaner.

    Why it works is simple:
    Vinegar is a natural grease cutter and alcohol of course is a solvent.

    I will say now I know why the commercial versions use fragrance.
    It smells a like someone eating an italian salad in a doctors office. heh

    If you want to eliminate the alcohol scent you could substitute the rubbing alcohol with vodka.

    The smell goes away after a minute or so. Personally it doesn't bother me.
    Who cares...it costs probably 25 cents to make a quart.

    Oh yea. Add an olive and vermouth and you have a martini/antipasto salad.
