Most commercially-sold natural surface-cleaners are a mixture of water, grain alcohol, and natural fragrance ingredients. This is pretty non-toxic, since you can drink grain alcohol (beer, whiskey) and pretty much get away with it. Alcohol is sometimes alternately listed as "corn-based cleaner", a sleeker way of saying "corn whiskey". Or, it may be listed as "ethanol", which is a shortened form of "ethyl alcohol" (grain alcohol).


You can make your own such cleaner by buying a bottle of cheap vodka, and adding it to water. It works well.

Lemon juice works very well for dissolving oil/grease and gunk.

I use white vinegar for mirrors, windows, even my car lol. My husband isn't too crazy about this but he'll still take that over doing any cleaning himself.

I get cleaning products from the Co-op, they often have buy-one-get-one-half-price offers, they don't test and they state on the packaging that the products don't contain animal ingredients.
