    Hello,

    I am having hard time finding commercial cleaning solutions as most are considered hazardous and flammable and can not be sent internationally.
    Is there anyone who successfully use "homemade" cleaning solution and can share the recipe?

    Thanks
    Sharon

    I use 50% ammonia / 50% water. I have used it for years but be forewarned the fumes can be intense . I never put my head over the cleaner and always put the lid on as soon as I can.

    I use Deox 007 made by Polychem, its not hazardous and most likely can be shipped. I stay away from ammonia, its not needed. My opinion only.
