Green Recipe : Everyday multi-surface cleaner

Take an empty washing-up liquid bottle or similar and fill it about 10th full of washing-up liquid detergent, preferably an environmentally friendly one such as Ecover. Add a similar amount of white distilled vinegar. Fill up the rest of the bottle with plain water. Use this squirted onto a damp cloth for wiping down surfaces. Dilute further if it seems too foamy.

This cuts through grease very well and deodorises too. I've used it on sealed wood - such as kitchen cupboard doors and the kitchen table with no problems at all. I'm not sure I'd use it on the best polished mahogany table though!
