Simple Green will work.

For a non-toxic cleaner, try white wine vinegar. Good for mold and mildew removal in particular.

Try a Magic Eraser for the though stains works great. Also, Method brand all purpose natural surface cleaner (it is plant based but works great) is safe and very effective. I think it works better than simple green and I have used gallons of Simple Green in the past.

We clean our fridge with bleach and water about twice a year.
