Back in the 70’s when I was at Ricks College (you know it as BYU-Idaho) I had to make a presentation in one of my classes. This was videotaped so that we could see ourselves in action, teaching something. Complete with a flip mirror above my head so that the camera and audience could get a better view of what I was doing, I demonstrated how to make homemade window cleaner. That was a fun assignment and I, of course, aced it! In another class we all contributed tips, articles, ideas, etc. to help build each other’s Personal File. That is where I got this “recipe” and no I do not remember who it came from. I have used this cleaner, off and on, for years.
2 tablespoons NON-sudsing ammonia
1 teaspoon liquid detergent
1 pint rubbing alcohol
1 gallon container
1. Add the first 3 ingredient to the gallon container, then fill with water.
2. Color to preference.
TIP–I would be careful with which color you choose. Blue would be an obvious choice. Pink or Purple might be too enticing for a little child who doesn’t know better and wants to check out the pretty water…Mine is light purple but I don’t have small ones at home, until the grandson comes over and then I just make sure he doesn’t have access.
