Hi Robin,

Seems quite a current topic.

A question, I remember seeing (thought it was on Rob Galbraith's site, but cannot find the reference on his right now, but found on another site), a method to substitute a mixture of Isopropyl Alcohol and Windex or water, on the site I have found it is stated as a mixture with Windex.

Have you or anyone you know used this to good effect (with Pec Pads instead of Eclipse)?

I've only used Eclipse. I've heard of people using medical grade methanol. Supposedly, that is what Nikon Japan uses. Methanol is an ingredient in Eclipse, and may be the only ingredient.

A bottle of Eclipse will last a long time. I see no reason to mess with making your own.

Most Windex cleaners contain ammonia. I would NEVER use that in a DSLR.
