Does your iPad or phone look like a greasy-fingered octopus has been playing with it? Every time my kids borrow a device, it comes back looking like heck and the screen needs to be cleaned.

You can buy fancy "screen cleaning solution" for $9 (seriously), but there's no way I'm paying for something I can make myself.

If this happens to you too, this simple screen cleaner recipe is just the ticket.

DIY Screen Cleaner Recipe

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons rubbing alcohol

2 Tablespoons distilled or purified water

Supplies

2 oz spray bottle

Small funnel

Instructions

Mix the rubbing alcohol and water in a clearly labeled spray bottle, but don’t spray directly on your screen. Instead, spritz a clean cloth and wipe down the screen.

You can also use this to clean your keyboard or mouse. Always spray on a cloth, not on the device.

I use this on our iPhone, laptop, and iPad with no problem--but I haven't used it with every device in every situation. Use it at your discretion on your devices.

Warning: may give you a desire to polish every flat surface in the house. If you end up feeling that way, come to my place and help me clean up.
