Well i figure if you spend money on distilled water, then might as well get the methanol solution no?

I have filtered water at home through Brita but not sure if that would be considered distilled.

I wouldn't use chemicals. Many lenses have a coating and you never know what chemical would peel it off.

But why are all the cleaning soltions then made of chemicals if its bad?  I just tried cleaning with a cloth and water from my jug and I got the dust off but its not completely clean.  I guess this filtered water isnt good enough, even though its already clean as can be.
