Emergency Household Cleaner Recipe

Dear Lissy,

I'm halfway through the Friday cleaning and out of cleaner.  Aggggh.  I don't use many homemade cleaners because they tend to destroy finishes over time.  Homemade all-purpose cleaner doesn't work as well as a Spartan PeroxyClean or SD-20, but it works much better than any cleaner available locally and costs only pennies.

Emergency All Purpose Cleaner

Fill a quart spray bottle 3/4 full of very warm tap water
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
1/4 tsp Dawn dishwashing liquid
1-1/2 tsp ammonia
Fill bottle the rest of the way with warm tap water.  Shake to mix.

Suitable for most sealed surfaces.  Avoid use on specialty or porous surfaces.
