    Truthfully, I would just use straight white vinegar. Sure, it smells like a doushe factory, but it kills germs really well. In fact, when I used it for a biology project, it out preformed Scrubbing Bubbles by a long shot in a really dirty bathroom I used.

    If you want something to dampen the smell, 3 or 4 drops of any essential oil will easily do the job.

    Oh, and reguardless of what cleaner you use, get the majority of the debris out first. Many cleaners, both natural and chemical, deactivate when it hits the debris.
