Does anyone know where I can get some low-odor cleaning products?

I'm very sensitive to chemical odors and rarely use full strength cleaners like Lysol or Pine-sol. For the most part they cause my skin to itch and give me a rash. Or, worse, when I use the orange scent cleaners that do so well on grease and dirt, I get a migraine that lasts all day. Perhaps it's not the scent that is causing the migraine, but one of the chemicals in the product. I can't be sure. Often, I'll use a diluted version of the product and the reaction doesn't seem to be as bad. But, then the product doesn't clean as well either. But, most times I have to avoid cleaning products with strong odors completely. Does anyone have suggestions on bathtub/shower, furniture or oven cleaners that are relatively odorless or less likely to provoke an allergic reaction to the skin? Lately, I've been more concerned about using products that don't harm the environment. All-natural cleaners that are environmentally friendly would be great too, if I could find any. Thanks for your suggestions.

furniture polish equal parts lemon juice and olive oil i know it sounds like a salad dressing but it works. shower cleaning bicarb-soda sprinkled in shower or bath spray white vinegar on it this will cause it to froth scrub away, i sometimes use a lemon to scrub it and this helps with it
