Doesn't mixing vinegar and baking soda neutralize the acid (vinegar), creating salt and water? Anybody who remembers their high school chemistry better want to chime in?

Baking soda is only slightly alkaline (pH about 9), while vinegar is very strongly acidic (pH about 2.4), so you'd need a lot more baking soda than vinegar to "neutralize" the acid. The reaction produces sodium acetate, which is "a salt", but not a particularly well-known salt. Certainly the reaction will not produce common table salt, as there is no chlorine in the vinegar or baking soda.
