Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

Today I said goodbye to my very last bottle of Costco Windex. It was sad. But what a great opportunity to do a little research and experimenting to bring you the very best homemade Windex recipe EVER!

Homemade Windex
(yield 8 cups/half gallon)

1/4 cup ammonia
1 cup rubbing alcohol
1 teaspoon homemade laundry detergent (or dishwashing soap)
6 3/4 cups water

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle. This stuff works EXACTLY like Windex.

So have fun linking up but please remember two things...

  1. Please link directly to your recipe swap post so if people are trying to find it during the week they don't have to sift through all the other posts. (and they will stop e-mailing me about it)
  2. Please include a link back here from your own blog

So have a great weekend collecting recipes and we'll see you on Menu Plan Monday!

I was wondering is it diswasher detergent soap or handwashing dish soap?

Gayle said...

Good question. It's handwashing dish soap.
