Keep a spray bottle of half Pinesol/half water under your sink spray outside garbage cans or anywhere you have a pest problem. Animals like rodents, opossums, raccoons, etc. don't like the smell.
I had a problem with our cats wetting in places other than their litter box. I found out if I wash the floor with PineSol they would stay away from that spot. They soon went back to the box where they were suppose to be using.
I make my own cheap cleaning/disinfecting solution by filling an empty spray bottle 1/2 way water, 1/4 bleach, 1/4 Pinesol. It works awesome! I clean my kitchen counters, window sills, bathroom, etc. It's safe because Pinesol is not a chemical, so you can mix the bleach with it and my house always smells fresh and clean. Try it - cheap and works great!

Save on window cleaners and paper towels. Mix Pinesol (or any nonabrasive cleaner) in a bucket of water and use a rag to wash your window and another rag to wipe it clean. Works great!

I've never had any problem using Pine Sol around my pets as long as it was diluted well and the room was well ventilated. Never heard of spraying it on plants. Seems to me it would clog up the "pores" on them.
