Cleaning - Homemade Window Cleaner

Well, it's Springtime and all the windows need a good washing. Since I hate wearing rubber gloves because of the ammonia in most window cleaners that you buy from the store, I like making my own window cleaner. Here is the recipe:

1 cup Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol
1 cup Distilled Water (distilled contains no minerals to add smudge to the windows)
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
1 Mint Tea Bag
3 drops of blue food coloring (optional)

1. Bring the 1 cup of DISTILLED WATER to a boil with MINT TEA BAG. Remove from heat immediately.
2. Remove MINT TEA BAG.
3. Add 1 cup ISOPROPYL RUBBING ALCOHOL, 1 Tablespoon WHITE VINEGAR, and OPTIONAL 3 drops of BLUE FOOD COLORING to DISTILLED WATER/MINT TEA. Mix together with a spoon.
4. Using a funnel, slowly pour mixture into a spray bottle and clean away.

NOTE: I add the mint tea to take down the smell of the alcohol and vinegar in the mixture. The blue food coloring is optional. I use it to make the mixture look pretty in the bottle. Do not use the blue food coloring in this mixture if you are using this cleaner on something that will be stained by the food coloring.

CAUTION: This mixture is not fit for human or animal consumption. Do not use this on any human or animal surface like skin, fur, etc. This is only for cleaning areas like windows and counter tops.
