Question de-winerizing

What does everyone use to clean the "wood" and "papered" walls and ceilings in their units? Bleach wipes? Just warm water?
I like to have everything very clean before we start out for the season, easier to keep it up while we travel

I generally use a product called green clean and warm water 50/50. I mix it in the kitchen sink and use a micro fiber towel to wipe everything down. I dip the towel and wring it out well so it is not to wet. When I am done I just let it drain into the holding tank and feel that it cleans my sending unit quite well.

the wood we just use the same kind of polish or dusting spray we would use on any furniture. On the walls any mild detergent or soap will work. You don't want to pour it on just use a dampened towel or rag. Unless you smoke in your camper they should just have a dusty surface and shouldn't take much to clean.

and water. It's mild, smells good and will remove dirt and grease without harming any of the surfaces.

Warm water, simple green and a damp sponge on the walls\ceiling especially around the fresh air vents where dirt accululates.

it is not recommended to use simple green on anything aluminum. I will cause it to corrode. Simple green is a very good degreaser. But the navy even doesn't allow it to be used for anything aluminum on it's ships.

I guess the idea is to dilute it down to at least 50\50 with water and rinse off in a reasonable amount of time. There's not a whole lot of aluminun inside most fivers, just wood and panelboard. Any aluminum surface in my trailer is painted and unharmed. Interesting point tho all-in-all.
