I know a lot of you own at least one tech gadget, so have you ever considered using one of those expensive cleaning solutions because 1. they claim it’s the best out there in the market, and 2. they work? Well I fell victim to that once, before I discovered that cleaning your gadgets doesn't have to be expensive.

Do you know that you can make your own inexpensive gadget cleaning solution? And these ingredients could very well be found right in your own household.

CNET’s Sharon Vaknin teaches us on Lifehacker how to do this. By mixing rubbing alcohol and distilled water in a small spray bottle container, you now have your monitor/keyboard/smartphone cleaner. Compared to vinegar, this is way better as it dries fast, and doesn’t smell. But according to their note, Apple doesn’t recommend using alcohol on iPads, so it's better to be safe than sorry.
