EarthJustice, an environmental organization had these recommendations for options to using harsh chemical cleaning products.

Drain Cleaner – Pour a half-cup of baking soda down the sink and add at least a cup of vinegar. Cover the drain and wait a few minutes, then rinse with a mixture of boiling water and salt.

Oven Cleaner – Make a paste of baking soda and water. Scratch off burned spots with a scouring brush, then apply the paste and scrub.

Streakless Glass Cleaner – Blend two ounces of vinegar to a quart of water in a spray bottle.

Silver Polish – Put a sheet of aluminum foil into a plastic or glass bowl. Sprinkle the foil with salt and baking soda and fill the bowl with warm water. Soak your silver in the bowl and tarnish migrates to the foil. Dry and buff.

Brass Cleaner – Cut a lemon in half, sprinkle it with salt, and rub the lemon on the metal. Buff with a cloth.
