I clean and sanitize with only vinegar, baking soda, essential oils, and Norwex cloths. I nearly killed myself for decades by breathing in so many chemicals. My asthma is slowing improving. And I didn't get pneumonia after my last cold as I often do. Much cheaper, also.

I agree- vinegar and baking soda work really well.

I also make my own citrasolve type cleaner.- Put leftover orange & lemon peels in a ball jar, cover in white vinegar let sit in a cupboard for 2 weeks. Strain into a dish soap or old squirt bottle. Takes all the grease right off the stove top and dishes like nobody's business.

Thanks for that tip. I'll do that right away. I'm sure it smells wonderful, too, when the vinegar smell dissipates.
