A Cheaper Cleaner
Baking soda and vinegar makes an environmentally friendly cleaner. Make your own scouring cleanser by combining 1/4 cup baking soda with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent. Add just enough vinegar to give it a thick but creamy texture. Clean and deodorize a drain or garbage disposal by pouring in 1/2 cup baking soda, then 1/2 cup hot vinegar. Let this sit for 5 minutes or so then run hot water down the drain.
