    Yes I have the best hint for you Use White Vinegar it is the best all purpose cleaner/degreaser that can be used all around the home inside and out and it is safe to use around pets and children and is gentle to use on all surfaces even use on your laundry it will remove odors and stains and remove the residues left by detergents and will not cause any allergies and is touted as being the best disinfectant in the world and it can be used both diluted with water or undiluted and still is safe to use everywhere even to clean your cars Good Luck !

    I did, I put one of the child safety locks on my kitchen cabinet under the sink where the cleaning products are. My daughter is 4 1/2 now, and knows enough not to go in that cupboard.

    * Borax is a naturally occurring mineral, soluble in water. It can deodorize, inhibit the growth of mildew and mould.

    * Baking Soda - is sodium bicarbonate. It has a number of useful properties. It can neutralize acid, scrub shiny materials without scratching, deodorize, and extinguish grease fires.

    * Cornstarch - derived from corn, can be used to clean windows, polish furniture, shampoo carpets and rugs, and starch clothes.

    * Lemon Juice - which contains citric acid, is a deodorant and can be used to clean glass and remove stains from aluminum, clothes, and porcelain.

    * Isopropyl Alcohol is an excellent disinfectant.

    Vinegar and Washing Soda.
