  • 24-ounce or larger bottle with sprayer top


  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol See NOTES
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 5 drops dishwashing liquid See NOTES
  • 2 cups water


  • Combine all ingredients in a good 24-ounce (or larger) spray bottle.
  • Label clearly.
  • Shake well before use.


1. Can't find rubbing alcohol? You can substitute with denatured alcohol, which you can find in the paint aisle of any good home improvement store. Can't find that either? You can substitute rubbing alcohol with gin or vodka.
2. Blue Dawn dishwashing liquid is the best because of its grease-cutting attributes.
