White vinegar is a common household cleaning staple due to it's great antibacterial properties. Not only is vinegar inexpensive but it is also very effective at breaking down molds, grease, and bacteria. I love using essential oils for cleaning because the smell amazing and are a natural way to keep mold and bacteria out of your home. I personally try to stay away from chemical cleaning products as much as possible and trust natural products.
