Mandi, it is just water, a glug of cloudy ammonia and a squirt of dish washing liquid.

Does the ammonia work better than vinegar, Judy?

Probably muchy muchy Marina - this combination is what my VIP window cleaner uses so I figure if it is good enough for them, it's got to be good.

are we talking about water in a bucket or a spray bottle?

I used to make it in a 2 litre ice-cream container CP then go around washing mirrors, splashback & glass stove-top so those very rough quantities are for that amount.  I now use it in a spray bottle.

I can confirm that JD''s glass cleaner is amazing stuff.  I keep some in a spray bottle for glass splash backs, math room mirrors and my glass dining table. I absolutely love it.

I've recently started spraying this on the shower walls before we have our showers to see how / if it works to help keep the glass clean and so far it looks to be doing a great job.  Only been doing it for approx. one week so far, so early days yet, but it is looking to be very effective.  Must be careful not to spray the floor, though, as it can be slippery!

Yes that would be dangerous if you slipped over in the shower.
Must try that one. Especially the main bathroom, I don't know what the kids do but that shower gets disgusting very quickly.

I didn't have any normal car cleaner left so I added a glug to a bucket of water.  I haven't washed my car for months - as it is kept in the garage out of the elements - but it came up really sparkling clean. The wheel rims were a lot easier to clean in getting all the black brake dust off, and it didn't seem to take as long as usual. I hope I haven't done the wrong thing by using it, but it was really good ... I actually enjoyed it!

I'm sure your car won't dissolve over night CP. perhaps your car wash will bring us some more rain. :)

Fingers crossed cookie, but only night time rain. Maybe I'll go and hang out some washing as that's also very effective

JD, I have an almost industrial type range hood/extractor fan in my kitchen with removable filters and I always put them in the dishwasher as well - they always come up sparkling. Before we did our renovation, the range hood in our kitchen had non removable filters and I had to use various sprays, all with limited effect at that time. I have to say that the miracle spray does my granite benchtops really well and if I just want to give my range hood a quick clean without putting everything in the dishwasher, the spray works really well.
 Regarding the eucalyptus oil issue that was mentioned previously, I used tea tree oil in my first batch of miracle spray. I definitely think eucalyptus or tea tree oil is essential, not only for the smell but certainly for its antibacterial properties.

My filter pads are 78 cm long - no way would they fit in the dishwasher unfortunately.  Wish they could though.

I love Miracle Spray  ;D
I dropped a full 1 litre bottle of olive oil on the floor 2 minutes before I had to fly out the door last night. Glass everywhere, oil everywhere and I'm looking at the clock thinking "uh-oh". (and mumbling not so pleasant things under my breath).
Got a bucket of hot water, slopped in about a cup of the Miracle Spray and mopped it all up in 5 minutes with an old rag. Did that twice and looking at it thismorning you'd never know there was such a mess there last night.
Amazing!
Did I say that I love Miracle Spray?  ;D ;D ;D
