Wax and grease remover isn't expensive and its formulated just for this type of work,thats why the pros use it.
Granted ,its mostly alcohol and straight alcohol WILL work but it evaporates too quickly and needs a few more ingredients to work properly..Sure ,its possible to make your own and I;ve done it in the past but when your doing this stuff every day its just not worth it ,you dont save that much and your taking a chance ,If you want to save some money save the dollars and the pennies will take care of dollars by reducing the amount of labor it takes to do the same job...Good quality W&G remover is a time saver.therefore worth every penny....
One more time.....apply with a dripping wet paper shop towel and wipe off before it evaporates....If your fast you can do half a hood max..but 2'x2' is about the norm (half a door)
