    I use white vinegar with a bit of baking soda<
    here is my recipe:

    1/2 a cup white vegetable vinegar

    2 tablespoons of baking soda

    1 tablepoon water

    this works great for me, vinegar disinfects, baking soda takes smells away and water thins it out
    this is completely natural and wont hurt anything or any one!
    after washing and scrubbing with the mixture just rinse out the rag and just wipe out with water
    this is much safer then bleach
    thanks!

    I use antibacterial dish soap and warm water. I have a big sink I put it in and let it soak for a little while and have a fairly soft brush I clean it with. I sometimes use a brick to hold it down in the water as otherwise it will float.
