What do you use for general purpose cleaner?

I like to have a general cleaner on hand to wipe down counters, floors, walls, etc. of our 192HW. While I have been using a bottle of 409, I'm wondering if this is too strong to use and I may be damaging the inside of the A-frame. What general purpose cleaner do you like to use? I need to find my manual because I think it describes what is best to use to clean windows (I think I remember.. .not Windex), but I don't recall what the manual said about counters and general wiping stuff down. Thanks!

I have used the various cleaners you can get at the "real" dollar store with good results.

"Greased Lightning" works great. Yea, I know, funky name but the stuff works great. I buy it by the gallon to refill all my individual dispensers and sprayers. Much better than 409 IMHO.

Awesome is great, but remember dilute and wash off immediately. When using outside to clean exterior dilute and wash off immediately with the original Dawn.
