    I had an employee who always cleaned the window of our restaurant with vinegar and newspapers. Considering all the grease in the air, they absolutely sparked when she got done. I know it sounds crazy, but it worked.

    Does "Diluted acetic acid for food 5%" fit's also?

    Can you use cider vinegar instead of white vinegar?

    I'm sure you could use either white or cider vinegar just fine. I always just use plain tap water in my microwave, heating to a boil, letting it sit with door closed for about 5 or 10 minutes, then wipe out with a clean wet dish rag and it works

    I have been doing this for years. It really makes the job easy. Don't even use vinegar. The steam softens any debris.
