I really don't know, but if you're that concerned get a big bottle of white vinegar and you can make environmentally safe cleaners for almost everything from windows and mirrors to counter tops and toilets.  Not the best smelling stuff, but a good discinfectant. Plus its safe for you.

I was told by my dr that everything I used wasn't good, even with proper ventilation. (scrubbing bubbles, bleach, soft scrub ect.) So I found some really awesome natural products, that work even better than the ones  listed above. If you are interested in them - let me know. :)

BLEACH, AMMONIA, etc    We recently bought a steam cleaner which uses no chemicals and cleans great... NOT A MOP but an actual cleaner.

PS there is a good brand in stores called Mrs Meyers in the natural area of store for cleaning.  We have used that as well.

Which one do you have?  I bought the shark one for 69 bucks and well worth the money.

I bought the Haan SF20 off of Amazon for $55 free shipping. I love it after I wash that pads and steam the floor the house smells like laundry detergent :)
