You can also use vinegar and water once (or twice if really dirty), and then water at least twice to rinse. If you do this regularly (once a month, you will never have a problem. This really helps!

DO NOT USE BLEACH. It is usually used to kill mold which you should not have. You are correct that it is dangerous, heat bleach up you get chlorine gas just a tad hard on the lungs.

DO NOT USE BAKING SODA. Would clog it up nicely. Baking soda is used as a deodorizer.

VINEGAR is used because it is weak acid, therefore it will dissolve mineral deposits in the machine. Just make sure to flush out the unit thoroughly after cleaning unless you enjoy vinegary espresso.
