Cheap cleaners? Vinegar for the windows and floors(shiny and no streaking!) and bleach for everything else. I mix bleach and water 50/50 in a spray bottle, spray down the tub, counter, whatever, let it sit for a few minutes to disenfect and wipe off. If there's a spot that needs scrubbing, I use baking soda. I use Dawn dishsoap, but we buy it at Sam's and that big bottle lasts about 4 months. I switched from Tide laundry soap to Extra a while ago when we had to watch every penny, and it works just as well, I think. I add baking soda to the wash water and use vinagar instead of fabric softener.

If someone had told me 2 years ago I'd be using these things, I would've laughed. Now I wince when I think of how much money I wasted on cleaning supplies!
