Peanut jumps and stands on every surface of the house. I don't want to use ammonia/bleach cleaners anymore, so I was wondering what I should use? Or is it ok to use those just making sure they dry before she jumps on the furniture?

I don't want to make her sick. But my current regimen of just wiping everything down with water isn't working.

I mostly just use soap in the kitchen, and Tilex/Ajax in the bathroom but I rinse really well. When I want a little smell with the clean I use Method cleaners, available at Target or drugstore.com. If you rinse well, I wouldn't worry once the counters are dry.

I use jif worktop stuff, after i cleaned them with that i go ove rthem with a wet cloth, then with kitcken roll until its dry. Really you dont want to use normal soaps because they cant kill bacteriea such as ecoli (Food poisening)

My cats rarely go on the kitchen counters but when they do, I get those Lysol wipes and wipe down and then get a paper towel and run that over the counters to make sure its dry. For floors we use some bleach formula and let the cats come in after its dry. :lol:

I just use anything that has anti-biotic capabilities in it.

I use bleach around here when I have a foster animal coming in or leaving. If you use the bleach/water combination make sure you rinse any surface off really well however.

There is also white vinager you can use with water, but I personally can not stand the smell of that vinager, it seems to linger in my nose forever.

There are pet safe cleaning supplies out there, perhaps you could take a look at those. :) And you can often find some good ones at your local health food store as well, and as a bonus they're products typically envolve no animal testing :)

When I'm cleaning the house, I gather all the cats up and put them in a room until I'm done with the chemicals, the place has been airated and the surfaces are dry.

Here are a couple brands some of my friends use, and seen in our health food stores:
