Dishwashing: Vinegar or Alcohol?
#1
I have switched from the S&B dishwashing method of water & detergent to alcohol & water in spray bottles. The method seems to work well & saves large amounts of water.

But I know some folks use a sprayer filled with alcohol instead of vinegar. Which method is better for sanitation & grease-cutting?

I use small amounts of Dawn. On a wet sponge. Cleans up grease best of all. Otherwise, vinegar is best for wiping things down and helping with bacteria.

What do you do if the pot has crust or a lot of stuck on bits?  Spray and let it soak, then wipe?  If so, does the spray dry up quickly?

I usually scrape crusty pots with a spatula. The inside walls of pots can often be scraped with the dull edge of a knife blade. But a few recipes are so messy I resort to the old detergent & water method. 

When spraying alcohol, I don't leave it on a dish long enough to dry before spraying it with water & wiping it dry.

I use 99% isopropyl alcohol to clean the lenses and reflectors on stage lights at work. I spray it on and wipe down with a lint free cloth. It also works very well for removing pine pitch from the lights without damaging the paint. It should work just as well for cleaning pine pitch off of a vehicle.
