I've always preferred to keep my cleaning and cleaning products very uncomplicated and simple. As a result I use only a handful of cleaning products. My "go to" product is granulated Spic & Span. I use it for nearly all my household cleaning chores. For non-abrasive purposes I simply sprinkle it on the target area and scour away. Works as well as any miracle product advertised. I dilute it in water for washing walls, floors, etc. Gets the job done perfectly even on the worst gunk. I think one of the reasons it's as effective as it is is that it might contain TSP, which Buck used to use in our furniture restoration shop for clean-ups.

Windows get a squeegee and Glass Plus. Bathrooms (toilets) get Kaboomed and the showers/tubs are cleaned using a commercial product I get at Sam's called ProForce Tub and Tile Cleaner. It's serious bleach and works like magic. It's not expensive and a jug of it lasts us almost 2 years. In the warmer months we used to have a mild mildew problem on a small spot on the master bath ceiling but, since using the ProForce, it's gone and hasn't come back.

I'm a bit of a clean freak and can be obsessive about the condition of my kitchen space and the bathrooms, but the above mentioned products satisfy me 100%. They are easy to get and don't break the bank.
