    Carefull mixing chemicals bud
    It is very easy to make something volatile that will blown up or catch fire
    You can make explosives from the correct cleaning products
    For example potassium and glycerin don't mix(will catch fire)
    Add something with a lot of oxygen in it and boom
    Not likely but be careful

    Strong dilution of white Vinegar + dish soap gives very good decreasing and cleaning effects. I used to use it all the time on gutters and tough jobs.

    You could try an equivalent of virosol, that's just a strong citrus decreaser and just about as good from same company. Or just get tfr (traffic film remover).

    I had a custom one made. It's quite strong.
