Household cleaners?

What do you guys clean your kitchens and bathrooms with?

Some people tell me I can't use any household stuff and should only use white vinegar and others say they do without any ill effects to their birds.

I'm so confused! I won't be letting them in the kitchen or bathroom but it's the fumes/smell I'm concerned about.

I'll play it safe for now and stick to vinegar.

I only use water and vinegar and let me tell you it cleans better than the chemical cleaners!

Is there a reason you water it down?

I use a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar which is how I was taught to do it. Do you use vinegar only?

You can also use a paste of vinegar and bicarb soda. Great for scouring the stove and sink and bath and basin. Also on benchtops. Bicarb soda will also remove mild rust, mix to a paste with water and apply, leave for about 1 hour. I used this to help remove surface rust from a chain saw blade.

I've been using pure vinegar every day since the weekend and have to say I'm impressed! So ok it doesn't smell great but it's less over powering than the proper cleaners!
