2. Bathroom cleaner
"Wet a cloth or paper towel with rubbing alcohol and rub firmly on bathroom fixtures," says Cobb. Buff with a soft cloth or dry paper towel. "This works well for water spots, too," she adds.
3. Window cleaner
This formula from Cobb uses no water. Combine one pint rubbing alcohol, two tablespoons of ammonia and two tablespoons liquid dish soap. Apply to the window using a nylon-covered sponge, rinse and buff dry. "This is also great for screen stains, hard-water spots and bird stains," she says."If you're polishing shoes, first rub them with a little undiluted rubbing alcohol," says Cobb. "The polish will go on smoother."
