What do you use to clean floors? How about grease spots in laundry?

We've been using Pine-sol
cleaner for years. The pine oil in it dissolved grease and killed germs. Unfortunately, the old formula has been replaced by a new "original formula" that is advertised as having a longer-lasting scent. It stinks! It smells like very bad cheap imitation floral perfume now, a long-lasting scent that makes the house smell horrible. We can't have this scent in our house. What should we use instead?

The main thing we use Pine-sol for is for mopping ceramic tile floors in the kitchen and bathroom. Some people recommend vinegar water for this purpose, but that doesn't do anything for grease spots in the kitchen near the stove. What do you use to clean floors with?
Another thing we use Pine-sol for is to remove grease spots from clothing before washing it. It works even for grease spots that have been through the washer and dryer already (forgot about a chapstick in my pocket....). What's an alternative product for this purpose?
