Oh, I almost hate to do this. I'm not sure what it's become now, but there used to be a multi-level marketing company called AmWay. The name has changed now but the products are the same. They have a cleaning product called LOC (Liquid Organic Cleaner) that is extremely mild but effective.

The orange and citrus based cleaners are probably a good choice, too, as they are fairly benign and most dogs and cats won't try to lick the surfaces as they don't like citrus - find it repellent actually.

I recommended diluted vinegar in a pm. It such a great cleaner. Used for years. They say its a disinfectant too.

I also agree with vinegar....awesome cleaner. I use baking soda, too, for any job that requires a bit of scrubbing. It is non-abrasive so it is amazing for any surface.......removes stubborn stains easily. Don't know what surface your kitchen floor is, but if it's a newer vinyl....you don't need to ever use any harsh chemicals to clean it....at the most, a little squirt of dish soap in warm water. And, you could always rinse if you want to be certain all soap residue is gone.

Hm, never really thought about vinegar - white vinegar I guess?

Another thing I really like to keep around for cleaning is borax. Nothing cleans a bathroom like old fashioned 20 Mule Team Borax - even old fashioned porcelain tubs.

Yup white vinegar. It's also a deodorizer. Once it dries it doesn't really have that vinegar smell anymore.

I've heard borax is an excellent cleaner. I've never bought it though. I don't know anyone that uses it. Of course I don't discuss cleaning products with a lot of people.

Tip: equal parts of vinegar and baking soda down a clogged drain is an effective "drain-o" You pour soda first, then vinegar and cover for about 10 minutes. Then flush with hot water. You may need to repeat as it's not as strong as commercial corrosive stuff. Much safer though for the enviro and the household in general.

Now that's good to know! Our sinks are always getting slow. The vinegar is probably perfect, since part of our problem is lime build-up. Our water comes from a deep limestone well.
