Cleaning Solution

Dear Heloise: I thought I read about a cleaning solution in your column that was a mixture of ammonia, rubbing alcohol and dish soap mixed with water. Can you give me the formula? Thank you. A Reader, via email Heloise: Yep, this is one of my favorite all-purpose cleaning solutions! Combine ½ cup of nonsudsing ammonia and ½ cup rubbing alcohol with 1 tsp dishwashing liquid in enough water to make about a gallon of solution. This works great on grease and grime. Want a money-saving collection of my favorite homemade cleaning solutions in a handy pamphlet? If you would like to receive one, send $5, along with a self-addressed, stamped (64 cents), business-size envelope, to: Heloise/Cleaning Solutions PO Box 795001 San Antonio, TX 78279-5001 Only make up enough cleaning solution to use right away.
