Homemade Geneclean solutions:

NaI solution:  90.8g NaI, 0.5g Na2SO3.  H2O to 100ml
Glassmilk:  12.5g silica (Sigma #5631), 25ml H2O
New Wash:  50ml 100% EtOH, 2ml 5M NaCl, 2ml 0.5M Tris pH7.5, 0.4ml EDTA  
          pH8, 46ml H2O

I have never had a problem with homemade geneclean.  I think it is as 
simple as it seems.
