I’m sure some of it has to do with some lipophilic solvent or stronger detergents to cut through grease, etc, but what about some specifics?

Water or Isopropyl Alcohol for things like screens or windows with tint. The higher the concentration the more water.

Bleach or bleach product for toilet/shower

Baking soda for any cloth you can’t bleach

Windex Multi-Purpose for literally any other surface (it’s amazing). You can technically use it in the shower/toilet, but you’ll have to scrub harder.

My parents keep like every cleaning product known to man and it’s annoying as fuck to find what you need when I help them out. I’ve only used these 4 basic products to clean everything I own over the past 8 years.
