Can you share your recipe for making your own cleaning solution?

I looked and naturally can't find the exact recipe for the solution I'm currently using.I can tell you that Dawn dish washing soap with vinegar was a big factor and vinegar were used,but I can't tell you in what proportions as I made up a bunch and am still using that.Dawn with vinegar was important though as it cleaned the cases better than anything else I tried.I'll keep looking for my last recipe,maybe I'll find it. morayman..............

hmann, thanks for the info. i'm going to give some thought to maybe adding a sonic cleaner to my reloading equipment.

Please post recipe next time you make a batch. The solution Hornady sells seems to be citrus based. Vinegar would probably be an "acid etch" type reaction; Dawn is a great product. If I experiment, I'll post results.
