With the white model baking soda should probably be fine but I would use caution because baking and vinegar can become caustic possibly causing peeling on the finish.

I would use just enough baking soda for it to have a bit of grit so it can scrub the dye... But first try cleaning with just vinegar and if that isn't enough then add a little soda.
