    Thanks for the info. I'm familiar with Method, I'll have to look for the floor cleaner next time I'm at Target. Unfortunately, when I moved to Wisconsin, I moved away from Lowe's. I really miss it

    Murphy Oil Soap – Murphy's Original Formula, Squirt & Mop, Spray and Wipes for all your wood care needs!
    I had read on the "This Old House" website not use Murphy's oil on wood because it would gray the wood.......anyone else hear this?

    Re: Housecleaning/Maid Service questions

    I asked the floor guys what they recommended for hard wood floors and they said vinegar and water is the safest way to go. So I think I'm going to start with that. I've got plenty of both! The cleaning service I use uses just water and a rag, I think...

    Stainless steel cleaners?

    What do you all use to clean your stainless steel appliances? I've heard that dishwashers with stainless steel interiors can benefit from the use of vinegar.

    But for cleaning the exterior of something like a fridge or stove, what do you all use? I've checked's GE's site for their appliances and they give contradictory information! They recommend one cleaner that's mineral based...and then they say not to use a mineral based cleaner! Thanks all!

    I read in Real Simple (Sept 2007, I believe) that the best cleaner for the exterior of stainless steel appliances is just a mixture of dish soap (ie: Dawn) and water. Made it seem very simple, however, I have yet to try it.

    They do make products to clean your stainless steel but there is an organic cleaner made by Earth Friendly Products called Parsley Plus that I tried on my stainless and it leaves it gleaming.

    When I got my stainless refrigerator, the salesperson told me to use Avon's Skin So Soft. It works great, and smells good too!
