    I make my own cleaners for everything. It's cheaper and I know everything that's in it.

    Baking soda and a scrubber (nylon or steel wool) for anything that needs serious scrubbing.

    Baking soda paste for most cleaning jobs that need a little more than soap and water, like a stained countertop.

    Dishsoap cuts grease.  I believe vinegar does the same.

    Vinegar water and newspapers for washing windows.

    Skin-So-Soft to remove pine pitch/tar/gummy residue.

    I use a steam mop for the floor....no cleaners needed.

    Oh, and a Magic Eraser for just about anything!

    I make my own cleaners using the same four ingredients: castile soap, washing soda, baking soda and vinegar.  Baking soda and vinegar are great on their own.

    Vinegar and baking soda for most things.  In another group I just read an article about all these things you can use pastes or solutions of hydrogen peroxide to clean. Burned on crud on cookie sheets and pans was one I aim to try when I unpack my kitchen.  I'll report back.
