Can I Clean Glass With Denatured Alcohol?

For glass and mirror cleaning; would denatured alcohol work just as well as rubbing alcohol?

You can but it would be better for your lungs to use distilled vinegar and water solution. ;-)

I toss rubbing alcohol into the vinegar and water solution. It makes the glass/windows/mirrors SHINE.

Yes, just use 1/2 denatured alcohol and 1/2 water; it makes an excellent glass & mirror cleaner.

When I worked as a paperhanger, I often ran into the cleaning crew on new homes. I was hanging some wallpaper and noticed that when I rinsed the paper around a window, it left absolutely no streaks on the window, amazing because my water wasn't that clean and I wasn't drying the windows, either. I asked the cleaning lady what she used and it was 1/2 denatured alcohol and 1/2 water, she said rubbing alcohol just wouldn't work as well. I've used this ever since.
