  • vinagr water works great for the floors it puts a nice shine on them and that way when little kids roam around they don't get nasty chemicls on them.
    I also use arm and hammer essentials cleaner and degreaser, they are reusable bottle all you is buy the little refills and it works great

  • For tough grease, I use a little Dawn dishwashing detergent and water. Everything else is vinegar and baking soda.

    Honestly? Clean first. Then if you make it a habit, then you can start splurging on fancy cleaners. Otherwise, you're just adding to the unusued collection under the sink, if you know what I mean. :)

  • 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.
    ¼ cup white vinegar
    ¾ 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)

  • My favorite cleaner is Fantastik Oxy Power spray. I use it on carpet spills, counters, laundry stains, you name it. That stuff works for everything.

    For glass, I use the blue Arm & Hammer one that you put the little refill in and fill up with water.

    I also like their green multi-surface cleaner for my stainless steel appliances.
