    How do I clean and disinfect without chemicals?

    I'm trying to make all my own cleaning products now for the house but what about cleaning toys and highchairs etc....will these be enough? What does everyone else do?

    vinegar is a great astringent. when my girls were younger i used just plain hot soapy water that had been diluted. Good luck. I don't make my own but use Shaklee cleaning products and am pretty happy with them.

    I use Thieves cleaner (from Young Living Essential Oils products...I can order you some if you'd like...its been proven to kill black toxic mold!). I also use the Miracle II cleaner.

    I use a combo of vinegar water (thats what our state day care codes recommend), shaklee cleaners, and hydrogen peroxcide (sp?)/oxygen bleach.

    I got a Shark Hard Surface Steam Cleaner. Just uses water. I LOVE THIS THING! I bought it for 80.00 at Lowe's and it's amazing.

    Just wanted to throw that out there.

    Cool
    Water and vinegar you really do not need more than that. You can also use a bit of dish soap on a cloth with water.

    Our ped dentists how we wash the bathtoys and I said super hot water! If you let them dry they should not mold. She said how much bleach? I said none, that stuff is toxic and throws me into an asthma attack. In the kitchen I use vinegar and water on every surface (even wood floors and furniture). It does not leave a smell behind at all, well on the towels you use if you dont wash them right away your laundry area will smell like vinegar

    Confused
    Vinegar and baking soda.

    I have a containers like a wipes box that I put Vinegar soaked paper towels in and wipe down the counters etc with

    I do use Simple Green on the bathtubs/tile at times when they are really bad as we are in FL and someone had the bright idea to put tile in the shower

    7th Generation also makes some cleaners, I use that for regular cleaning at times
