    General Cleaning Product

    I am on the search for some good general cleaning products without harsh fumes/smells but that will still work to kill bacteria. I am willing to "make" it or buy it. I just feel like the traditional cleaners (especially bathroom cleaners) have too strong of a scent--I know they make me cough when I am cleaning and so I try to only use it when Luke is down for his nap or in bed so he is not right there when I use them. But I still feel like there has to be something better to use. Also, I like to clean the surfaces that are "high traffic" a couple times a day. I have been using disinfecting wipes, but that can get expensive. So I was wondering if there was a spray disinfectant that I could buy or "make" that would be effective but again would not have a harsh smell. It is summer and Luke is so healthy and doing great, but winter is looming in front of me and that is when we have our trouble. Just trying to be a little more proactive this year! Thanks for any suggestions!

    General Cleaning Product

    Our latest favorite cleaning agent is distilled water. It is surprisingly effective and zero fumes. I also use a lot of peroxide and diet tonic water, though peroxide tends to bleach things out so there are some precautions to take with it. We recently bought some copper sheeting for it's antimicrobial properties. We move it around to places on the floor where we want stuff killed and leave it there for an hour or more. Again: zero fumes. For the toilet tank, we use tea bags instead of those bleach discs.
