    Doesn't the dish soap leave a film?

    This is great! I tried making this but every tipe i wiped a surface it leaves a soapy film. Is there anyway I can avoid this?

      The best glass cleaner I've ever used uses only water and a product called Zap Cloth. It's streak free and spot free and my fav place to use it is on my hard to do car windows on the inside! An amazing product. It even removes bugs , tar, grease etc.

    Is there any expiration date? Do you occasionally have to wash the whole container and use a fresh batch from time to time?

    I suggest if you are making any solution that calls for water, and it is to be kept for a while, use distilled or other bottled water. Tap water will start to get slimy after 4 or 5 days, then will stagnate.

    I love this idea! I've been using pine-sol for years, it is my everything cleaner! It doesn't streak mirrors or other surfaces!!

    As recommended above, distilled water for storing wipes is best!!

      Thanks for the Pine Sol tip. I want to start car-camping, but I didn’t want to use scented cleaning products since apparently bears think everything smells like food. For some strange reason, they dislike the scent of pine. They live in the forest, so I thought pine would be a food source for them. Apparently, not. I guess I’ll be making myself some jewelry out of pine air fresheners! 😆
