I wouldn't use the aluminum foil method on anything of value. Basically your electroplating your silver with aluminum. You are removing tarnish, but can also be removing silver (http://scienceblog.com/community/older/1998/B/199801523.html).

As for drain cleaning, the vinegar and baking soda react and loosen the gunk in the drain. I've used is on minor drain issues.

For other green/less toxic ideas, Annie Berthold Bond's book is a good place to start (http://www.amazon.com/Better-Basics-Home-Simple-Solutions/dp/0609803255).
