I've been looking for a Ready to Dispense disinfectant that is low on the hazard scale and relatively inexpensive. I have been coming up short in my search :(

So what does everyone here use and can recommend that might fit what I'm looking for?

Well i use Microban clean carpet sanitizer, maybe your looking for a more economical solution.
I'm not sure if you were looking for an over all disinfectant or carpet & fabric sanitizer?

It is not ready to us, but we really like Siminoz CQ-27. Good price, cleans well and smells different. We do like the smell.

I've been using 118 by Envirox for years. I dilute it for my glass cleaner too. One product for the entire bathroom. They make a floor cleaner too, called Floors. Too expensive for what it does imo.

Looking through them now, there's a lot! Actually, they have a ton of MSDS sheets to sort out. We use their neutral floor cleaner and love it. Takes black scuff marks off the floor in a breeze and works great in the winter on all the salts that come in.

I'll have to try the Neutral Cleaner for our VCT. Where did you find?
I saw that on the HD site, while looking at the deodorizer stuff. $6.50 or so/gal.
Not bad price. I have been using the neutral cleaner that Sam's Club sells. Todd turned me on to it. So far so good. It's about $4.50/gal. But it's not a disinfectant.

Damn that stuff looks great. I've been looking for some based on hydrogen peroxide but they are usually $$$ and you can't dilute them. That stuff you linked to if my math is correct makes about 51 quarts and is only a 1 on the health scale!
I don't use it on the floors. You can. But I don't. Too expensive imo. 1oz/gal. The gal runs about 34 or 44 bucks. I haven't bought it in a while. While the neutral floor cleaner I use is about $4.50/gal. I just can't rationalize why paying that much more for floor cleaner. My thinking, you don't eat off the floor, you just walk on it. Ya I know, hack. o_O

Not sure if it's the same one Gasonline is talking about but this is the one we use:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/202728...toreId=10051&N=5yc1v&R=202728479#.UmbgBO3D9bF

It's about $8.50 a gallon. They had in the store once, but they stopped carrying so had to resort to online ordering. It does give the floors some traction for sure, some mistake it to being sticky from a juice spill if you use too much.

I agree, as along as the floor is getting cleaned. Some of the really cheap floor cleaners end up making the floor dirty though.

The one from Sam's club, how does it work on rock salts/calcium/snow melt everyone loves to use in the winter? The Odoban we use seems to help out a lot with neutralizing the white deposits.

I am not sure about that, just started using it. Good to know that odoban takes care of it. I'll have try it.

For serious stuff like around toilets or bathroom walls in bars and pool halls microban is the way to go but as a RTU or additive for mopping or table wiping I agree that Odoban does a heck of a job.

We use it on all kinds of things and I don't worry about getting it on my clothes or hands.

Ryan..what is the basic difference between the Microban and Odoban? I have used Odo Ban for years for disinfect..mold mildew etc.And it is DIRT cheap with it's dilution rates..never had a problem (that I am aware of!)
