    Huh - who knew? The only Vindex I'm familiar with is the glass cleaner my grandmother used to ask for.

    When I took one camping it was one of the favorites for kids to use. All I have is a back side pic but you get the idea what it looks like:

    Science Fact! That would be effective, as long as she uses the Windex with ammonia. The ammonia-free versions would probably not make you itch less. The most common explanation I've heard for this is that bug bites often contain acids, so the basic ammonia neutralizes them, in the same way that baking soda in a bath or paste form does. I'm not sure the chemistry is right, but I have found that ammonia helps.

    I think using Windex on bug bites was on "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
