  • Peroxide is a good trade off for Bleach, it's what most Doctor's offices use for cleaning.

  • Water, vinegar and baking soda. I clean my whole house with those and they are pretty much non toxic.

  • This is what we use for most cleaning (initially used as part of my daughter's 6th grade science fair project). It is cheap (my favorite) and non toxic.
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    3/4 cup warm tap water
    1 tablespoon baking soda
    10 drops of tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, etc.)
    2 drops oil of lavender (optional) (antiseptic and smells nice)
    For extra scrubbing, i make a paste with salt, baking soda and vinegar.
