All Purpose Cleaning Solution With Sudsy Ammonia

One quart rubbing alcohol, one teaspoon dish washing liquid, 21 oz .409 and one cup sudsy ammonia. Pour ingredients into a one gallon container that is empty (do not use an empty bleach container). Shake up ingredients and add water to make a full gallon of cleaning solution. Pour liquid into the empty 409 bottle. This will last at least a few months.


Tip: Never use bleach in combination with this formula.

Is the 21 oz. of 409 part of the recipe, or is that just for the bottle?

Hello to Barbara and all. This is not quite the recipe, as 401 cleaner was not part. I found a recipe for sudsy ammonia. Please see below, but all the ingredients were non-commercial. Thanks.

Homemade sudsy or "soapy" ammonia

Locate pure ammonia solution.

Use rubber gloves - ammonia can burn skin.

Be sure to make your mixture in a well ventilated area and do NOT lean over the bottles while you are pouring.

Organize this task so that you will be pouring over a sink just in case there is any dripping.

Use an clean empty plastic bottle (about 12 ounces). Old spray cleaner bottles are great, for example, Windex. Be sure any old product is completely gone.

With a steady hand, pour about a third of a cup of ammonia into the bottle.

Add a 1 - 2 teaspoonful of dish washing liquid.

The instructions then go on to say:

Fill the remainder of the bottle with water.

*I also didn't remember cutting the mixture with water. I thought it was just ammonia, dish washing liquid and rubbing alcohol but I'm just not sure.

Thanks again...migaluchi

This recipe is unclear to me too. Is 409 used here? Thank you.
