    What are the best and most economical home cleaners right now? I'm trying to find something I can afford that is without the chemicals.

    Castille soap, baking soda, white vinegar. The soap and baking soda make a great scrub type cleanser. The vinegar is good for cleaning windows and mirrors, just dilute it in a spray bottle.
    A microfiber cloth is great for dusting and mirrors!

    Vinegar and newspaper is good for cleaning windows and lemon juice is good for cleaning and for getting limescale off.

    Another great one is hydrogen peroxide. It cleans great.

    Do you mix that with anything or just pour it on and go from there?

    I have poured in in a spray bottle and just began cleaning with it. You can dilute with water if you want to.

    I have never cleaned with hydrogen peroxide. I will have to try it sometime.
    On a side note, club soda works great on windows and mirrors.

    I have never used club soda. I will have to try it. Does it streak? I have trouble with this all the time.

    The club soda does not streak. Works especially well if used with a microfiber cloth. Put some club soda in a spray bottle.

    I love my microfiber cleaning towels. They work so well and with just some water. Easy to care for and very inexpensive. I have even found them at the Dollar Store.

    Microfiber seems to do a good job. I don't have any towels, but I have glass lens cloth that is excellent.
