Distilled white vinegar is a natural disinfectant that can be used to sanitize floors and surfaces as well as clean other appliances. It is more cost-effective and safer than store-bought cleaners because it doesn't contain harsh chemicals. Lessen the sour smell of vinegar by diluting it in water and adding fresh lemon juice.
