Coke has only one use in my house, as a toilet cleaner! However the cheaper brands work just as well. We "puffers & wheezers" need to avoid bleach at all costs, or chemicals that contain chlorine in any form. I refer to it as "mustard gas"

I never use sprays of any sort, even perfumed deodorants in the bathroom. And don,t even think about perfumed candles around. I just damp dust and for cleaning sinks and counter tops l use a product here in Australia called Gumption. It is a solid cake in a tin and you just use a damp cloth to use it. It, works well and no fumes or perfume. Breathe easy everyone.

Like everyone else, slow and easy. Start at one room and work my way around to all of them. Had to get rid of all my carpeting, so now just have small throw rugs...which I can still shake outside. The floors are dusted with a Swiffer. At a certain age you learn to overlook at lot of things....if someone comes and they make some comment...well, then they can clean it. Vinegar, baking soda, Dawn.
