    Fake Windex I was so satisfied with the Fake Febreeze for 15 Cents, that I began wondering what other common household cleaners I could make on the cheap. There's tons of resources out there for DIY cleaners, but I want to REPLICATE as closely as possible the Real Thing! Probably the Number One Cleaner I use in my house is Windex. With 4-year old, AKA "Mr. Sticky Fingers" and Scottie Dog, AKA "Mr. Greasy Nose" in the house, I use it a lot! Credit In all honesty, I have tried to use the Dollar Tree version of Windex. To me, it just seems too watery and it leaves lots of streaks. Guess some things are just not the same as the name brand....until now! Here's what you need: 1 Empty Windex Spray Bottle 1/8 Cup (1oz) White Ammonia 1/4 Cup (4oz) Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol 1 Drop Laundry Detergent Water - To Fill The Bottle Isn't it nuts how most of what we're paying for is WATER? Anyway, I tried this "refill" of my Windex and it's awesome! No streaks & it even smells like the real thing! I used a 64 oz bottle of Ammonia and a 16 oz bottle of Rubbing Alcohol that I picked up for $1.00 each at the Dollar Tree. Wait till you see how cheap it is to "fake" your own Windex:

WINDEX 1/8 c White Ammonia ($1 at Walmart for a huge bottle) 1/4 c Rubbing Alcohol 1 drop Laundry Detergent Water - To Fill The Bottle

Take a spray bottle, fill it about 1/8th full with rubbing alcohol, add a drop of Dawn dishwashing soap, a few drops of scented oil (optional, but makes it smell so good), fill the rest of the way with water, shake together, and you're good to go! It makes your granite (or any countertop) shine and feel so smooth at a fraction of the price~I have loved it and use it on my appliances as well.

Window Cleaner - This is streak free, just like we like it. You can add a few drops of blue food coloring if you want it to resemble windex more (since it's mostly WATER), but there's truly no need~I've actually found I like this more than windex!
