    Alcohol/dist. water works great for lots of cleaning projects. I keep a bottle mixed up and use it to sanitize granite counter tops, clean appliances, mirrors, windows. Even my hardwood floors! It evaps so quickly, no harm to the wood. Spray lightly, then go over with the microfiber mop. Lots cheaper than the hdwd floor cleaners found in spray bottles, which have high alcohol content. BTW, for general cleaning, u can add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to the mix. Smells very nice. Altho don’t use the oil mixture for cleaning electronics.

  2. I used to work for AppleCare and people would call asking if I had a special kind of screen cleaner to officially recommend for Apple products. The Apple website has some stupid WHOOSH! brand gimmick for $19.95, but to be honest I recommended exactly what you have in this article. I feel like I should have found this before I quit because I swear I would have forwarded it to people.

    Good morning,

    I found a product called whoosh, it’s a NON toxic (alcohol and ammonia free) cleaner… it cleans all kinds of electronics, AND it kills germs.. ??!!.. i dont want to spend the amount they want.. any chance you can somehow figure out what the product is made of? one clue i found out was that they used to detail cars, and one of the products spilled on their ipad and they discovered that it cleaned it to perfection!
    any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

    I read you s should not use rubbing alcohol but instead use a50/50/ solution of distilled water and white vinegar with a microfiber cloth. Now I am confused. Which is better to use?

  7. Never put it on a piercing or cut. It is too strong and not only kills the bad bacteria but kills the good skin cells and prolongs healing time

  8. Thanks for the great tips, some of these really need to be remembered. Like the one where you shouldn’t spray the cleaning solution directly on the screen. I did it once long time ago, and the screen just turned off. So, it’s good to know. And the water really needs to be distilled only, because everything else leaves huge smudges on the surface, which are hard to remove afterwards.

    the window cleaner is the best I ever used. I used to hate cleaning windows.


  1. […] alcohol works great on crevices, such as computer keyboards and mouses. If you’re looking for clean electronics, adding a 50/50 mix of the alcohol and water into a spray bottle gives you a great all purpose […]

  2. […] I’m serious, you probably don’t know how dirty your screen is until you place it in front of sunlight. Use a microfiber cloth and some LCD screen cleaner formula for maximum clarity. Here’s how to do it for pennies. […]

  3. […] $9 or more a bottle, which is wicked expensive, and they are pretty much alcohol and water.  So, maybe make your own?  I find that this also works great on all the surfaces of my laptop.  I’ve tried a variety […]
