Housekeeping High and Cheaper, maybe funner too, relatively so

Ethyl alcohol, ethanol, EtOH

The best eco (i.e.,  home) agent for helping clean my space, since every other agent

(isopropyl, CH3OH, Green Magic, Ecoshopium Hopes and Dreams. Comet, Ajax, Clorox)

makes me sick to my stomoch.

Some pluses of EtOH cleaning solution: makes housekeeping something better than a chore.

Advice: instead of the plethora of house trim and glass 'cleaning agents'... try a bottle a the cheapest vodka.

"@GD; Yes and, of course, the wine was complimentary, your choice of red or white....

I don't drink so when I asked about a beverage which contained no alcohol, they looked at me as if I were a recovering alcoholic...."

I thought bleach was the least expensive cleaning agent...

You will disinfect your bathroom with my bottle of Absolut over my dead body!  LOL

P.S.  I learned from a bunch of Marines that used to hang around our house in Cali to clean glass with folded newspapers and just a bit of lighter fluid.  It cleans quickly, makes them sparkle and they stay clean longer.  None of them would have wasted vodka to clean glass either!  ; )

Vinegar works, if you can stand the smell. And (white) vinegar with newpaper cleans windows perfectly! Then the Stoli is saved  : )

I don't drink (alcohol) at all, so I 'get' the look people give when at a gathering of drinkers present (and where/when aren't they?), someone says, Do you have anything non-alcoholic? As if only those who don't drink are those who actually can't stop.

I'm missing the enzyme that processes alcohol, so my sip/dancing on tables/headache/passing out arc is about 10 minutes, off literally a couple sips. Very boring. I'd love to be able to tolerate enough to not feel like a pariah in social drinking occasions. I usually just take the glass of wine and never drink it, then no one gives the look they usually give to non-drinkers and everything is more relaxed.

One of the funniest "non-alcohol" situations that ever happened to me was when I was attending a social function I ordered a club soda while standing next to a rather asshat-ish business acquaintance.  He gave me the "raised eyebrow" thing and asked why I didn't order some of the free booze.  I told him that I wasn't drinking because I was the "designated driver".  When we were all leaving he saw me getting into my car by myself and gave me the "two raised eyebrow" thing and said, " ...but you came by yourself!"...  I answered "Yup, and I'm my own designated driver.  You got a problem with that?"   He just stood there with his mouth open as I drove away laughing my ass off.

I spent too many years as the designated drinker to notice if the windows were dirty.
