Sorry, I am required to use bleach in certain places by my County (diaper changing table for sure). We are not even authorized to use the Clorox wipes...sure wish they put enough actual bleach in them..the convience would be nice and would save me the overspray on my shirts! LOL
I still "bathe" toys in bleach in the sink, or I run them thru the washing machine (soft things) in a sanitize cycle for the super heated water, and also use my dishwasher alot..again the super heated sanitizing water.
For the non-county required bleaching areas, I would look for something allery friendly for sure...eco friendly type ones can be the right avenue often.
I ahve a hard time with fumey things myself. I actually will wear a mask when I do heavy cleaning on weekends (hubby worked in auto body for years so gets them for me still) as smells produce massive long lasting (several days) migraines for me....

Have you ever heard of or considered Norwex products? It's microfiber products that clean with only water and are proven to remove 99.9% of the bad bacteria. They clean with only water. The initial cost can seem expensive but considering you only use water, it's not only cheap but safe around kids too. If you want to learn more, check out my website: www.annettesnorwex.blogspot.com
T.C. answers from Minneapolis on November 30, 2010
I believe my daycare uses a vinager/water mixture. Im sure you could go online and look up some ideas. I think that is even better than bleach. Then like a previouse responce said add some tee-tree oil. I think that is kinda minty smelling so the vinager isn't so strong.

I use water, vinegar and alcohol (1 cup each) and works really well; it disinfects and the vinegar smell is not so strong.
Hope it helps!

Shaklee - they make a basic G which gets rid of germs and contains no bleach. Very very reasonably priced also.

What about the Method products? Are they approved for daycare use? I love Method and use in my house, but I'm not a daycare. I also like Seventh Generation.
