What does everyone like to use when a customer wants a Green Cleaning but also a disinfecting. I was using Simple Green to clean with, but haven't really looked for/found a green disinfector. Any suggestions or thoughts?

I'd be careful about calling something a disinfectant, as chemicals that are labeled as such have to meet very specific guidelines before they can be commercially sold as such. I believe most disinfectants have to be left on a surface for about 10 minutes before having the desired effect. As far as green disinfectants go, Benefect is supposed to be the only one that is certified as a disinfectant by the EPA.

Eucalyptus is antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial.
All essential oils will either kill bacteria or inhibit their growth to a certain extent, some of them acting on one or two organisms only, and others on a very wide spectrum. A small number of oils will also kill or inhibit viruses. Some of these are very much more powerful than chemical disinfectants, such as phenol (which is used as a standard of comparison in laboratory tests). Among the most useful are Bergamot, Clove, Eucalyptus, Juniper, Lavender, Tea Tree and Thyme.

It is a known fact that large no. of disinfectants are available in the market under many companies tag which really makes a buyer confused of what one should go far, but i would suggest to try Janitorial disinfectant product on a small quantity & you yourself can make out the difference.
