How ecological do the cleaning products have to be?

a) my BF is German, and he buys what he knows.  He also cleans the bathroom, so I am happy to let him buy what he needs.
b) the kitchen sink is a tiny bar sink that splashes water all over the ancient Ikea wood counter, so there is mildew.  Someday we will put in a larger sink with a stainless surround and sand/oil the counter, but until then I use bleach.  I had to search all over to find real chlorine bleach, too.

Here is my BB attempt!

Dirty Sink : Note the massive pile of zip lock bags and bees wax wraps to be washed (My partner and I both have a mental block when it comes to washing them)




Note: I cleaned the drying rack if you are wondering why it was missing in the first photo!

Dirty Stove Top:



Dirty Counter Top:




Dirty Table:


Dirty Floor:




Clean Sink (and Baggies):



Clean Stove:



Clean Table, Floor, and counter tops:


Cleaner:

I used Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds Biodegradable Cleaner. You can see it in the photo of the clean sink! That and warm water.

Cleaned the kitchen!   Dave's picture format is so great, I copied it!

I used no cleaners. If a rag wasn't enough, I added warm water and friction.

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! And this tiny ad too!
