    10 recipes for cleaning green

      Baking soda and vinegar will do a multitude of things in the kitchen. Use it as a drain cleaner, to clean the tops of glass top stoves, or to clean the grease off of the bottom of an oven. Just put the baking soda down first, then add a splash of vinegar and let the chemical reaction do the work for you.
