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.
