- Lemon juice - An effective and pleasant-smelling alternative to bleach. Useful as a mould-inhibitor as well as a disinfectant. For stubborn mildew stains on shower curtains, rub with lemon juice and dry in the sun.
- Salt - Dissolve in water to use as a mild disinfectant in kitchens and bathrooms. Salt is also good for cleaning surfaces that require a gentle abrasive. Mixes well with vinegar and water as a surface cleaner.
- Soap - Washes away bacteria and is an important part of basic sanitation. Pure soap flakes are available in supermarkets, or you could make your own by grating a bar of pure soap.
- Tea-tree and eucalyptus oils - Strong but pleasant-smelling and economical to use as you need just a few drops. Add to hot water when wiping down surfaces.
