Bicarbonate of soda (Baking soda) is my favorite natural cleaner, as it appeals not only to the environmentalist in me but also to my inner cheapskate! It won't break the bank to buy, it's very effective, and it's extremely versatile. Almost every area in your kitchen can benefit from a wipe-over with bicarbonate of soda. This will help to prevent a build-up of grease and grime whilst deodorizing the kitchen at the same time. However, bicarbonate soda can leave a thin white film behind, so always rinse thoroughly with a damp cloth afterward to remove any remaining residue.
To clean with baking soda, simply add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to 1 cup of water and heat in a microwave for 4 minutes. Open the door after 10 minutes and wipe clean.
Recyclable plastics are usually small, light, and disposable and can be identified by the number and symbol pressed into the bottom of the plastic.

The recycling center will use this ID to sort and recycle the plastic and determine which plastic is non-recyclable and must be discarded.
