    This is the BEST recipe I've ever used.

    2 cups of water
    1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol
    2 TBLSP of Dawn or your grease cutting liquid detergent of choice

    Add all to a spray bottle and give it a couple shakes.
    Spray and wipe with a damp cloth. This works so well on greasy stoves and sinks. I wipe everything off with the rinsed off cloth, but supposedly you don't have to.

    This is also a good cleaner in the bathroom.

    @Marianne , I mixed up some of that, and liked it for kitchen. but, IMO, it really shines (pun intended) as a window cleaner. best window cleaner I've ever used.

    Oh no kidding! I'll have to give that a shot. The rubbing alcohol would really help dry that window faster aka less streaking.
    For years I've used the standard 1/4 c vinegar, 1/2 tsp Dawn and 2 c water for washing windows. Maybe just using alcohol in place of vinegar would do it. Hmmmm
