My cleaning tip is more of a quick chemistry lesson, but seeing as it's come up in the thread I may as well elaborate…
Both vinegar and bicarb are mildly corrosive so both are effective cleaning agents. However, vinegar is an acid and bicarbonate is a base, so if they're combined they'll simply neutralise each other rather than doubling their cleaning power. When they react they release CO2 gas so the little bubbles probably look like they're doing something but they're really not.
They react in a 1:1 ratio but it's unlikely that you'll ever add exactly the right amount of each to react fully. Therefore, a solution of both will still be slightly acidic or basic and so retain some cleaning abilities, however you're much better off using just one or the other, depending on the material.
Soaking in bicarb (base), then vinegar/lemon juice (acid) is a good approach.
