You can use a few basics for cleaning. White Vinegar is a good streak free cleaner. I use it for a LOT. If you use it full strength for a really dirty job, test the surface in a small area first. Vinegar is basically an acid. Ammonia can be used the same way but you only need to add a small amount to water for it to be effective. Ammonia is fairly cheap too.
I wholeheartedly agree with you. White vinegar, baking soda, ammonia and bleach are the cornerstone of inexpensive cleaning products (as long as you use bleach on its own). I would also add Dawn dishwashing liquid and Borax to the list. I made the switch over to inexpensive cleaning products last year and I have saved over $200.
An added benefit with the vinegar and baking soda is that I can use it on my body. Vinegar is a great hair conditioner and baking soda exfoliates my skin. Combined, they make a nice foot bath.
