In my house stainless kitchen sink I use bar keeps helper, but not sure if I should use that in RV stainless sink. only thing I use in both RV and Home is a wet swiffer on the floors. what products are you using ?

I usually use Clorox Disinfectant Wipes for our Class C with 2 adults and 2 kids. They do a good job of cleaning without having to worry about chemicals going into the gray/black tanks. I can't drain them at home so they'd have to sit around for a while. Plus I don't have to worry about being sloppy. Not the world's best cleaner. Just ask my wife.

Everything looks good and shiny afterwards, and with the lemon scent, it smells good, too.

We don't full-time so ours doesn't always see the heavy use as in our house.

Swiffer for the floor (same as you) and Windex for the mirrors/glass. Rejuvenate for the cabinets.

Hope this helps!

I use 409 and a microfiber cloth on the counters. I have a Shark steamer for the tile floor. Only need plain water in the Shark.

We use Ka-Boom for most cleaning. It is gentle and effective.

For the sink and commode I would use soft scrub, but first I'd see what the owner's manual recommends.

Scrubbing Bubbles for everything except glass. The ingredients for both the foam and the pump spray are the same. As a bonus it leaves a pleasant smell.

I love Mrs. Meyer’s Daily Cleaner. It does all the standard cleaning, is good at getting greasy stains off the stove, and even decent at the hard water marks in the shower. Glass cleaner for the glass. Disinfecting wipes for the toilet. For the tile floor I just use a mop with vinegar and water.

Home Depot sells a line of products called Odoban. Their cleaner cleans virtually everything from bathrooms to getting stains out of laundry. And it actually gets the smell of cat urine out of blankets and pillows.

Odoban is simply incredible stuff. I've never found anything like it.

Stainless is stainless, and sewer systems are sewer systems, so use whatever you use at home (I leave it to you how bio-friendly your choice may be). Ditto if you have corian or other solid surface bowls. And RV park sewer systems aren't any different than home or community systems, except in size.



I would be careful of abrasive-type household cleaners if I had plastic sinks in the RV (or at home), though.

I like to use Simple Green at different ratios to clean almost anything. I just finished scrubbing the floor with it.
