 I use baking soda and vinegar.

We are very anti-chemical in this house.. and when we switched, I found the vinegar and baking soda got things cleaner than Pine-Sol and Mr Clean.

 i use vinegar, baking soda & steam for every day cleaning. if the kids have been sick, i pull out the bleach and the lysol to disinfect. but i have a huge crate of cleaning products. i dont use them often, the fumes make me sick

I use a mix of half water half vinegar on pretty much everything. Non-toxic, the vinegar smell goes away once its dry

 I keep jars of vinegar with orange or lemon peels. After about 2 weeks I dilute 50/50 with water. Cleans great and the citrus takes mellows the vinegar smell....at least to me.
