I use plain baking soda for anything that has to be scrubbed. Works great on the kitchen sink, pots/pans, tub. It's cheap, and safe enough that I can use it with no gloves, since I'm allergic to most of those.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I much prefer the smell of salad over lysol or pine sol or something. Hate that smell!

ABSOLUTELY!!
Plain, cheap white distilled vinegar is what I clean my house with and use in my wash for fabric softener. The vinegar smell goes away as soon as it dries leaving a fresh, clean smell and soft clothes. It disinfects and deodorizes. I sure does smell like a salad around here when I am cleaning but afterwards, just fresh and clean.

That is a very good reminder. Thank you.

You can find how to make most house hold cleaners using a few household ingredients (vinegar, baking soda) by googling. These even save on money too.

What you clean your house with might be as unclean as anything you are trying to avoid in your diet and sometimes much worse. If you are spraying and wiping surfaces with toxic chemicals then you are absorbing them into your body--NOT CLEAN!

Here's an article from Doc Mercola on the subject:
