Baking Soda is amazing…

January 17, 2009

Yesterday, I posted about how you can simply use Baking Soda instead of Drano or Liquid Plumber.

Today, I thought I would list a few other ways to use the inexpensive Baking ingredient!

To remove coffee/tea stains or minor burn stains from china dip a damp cloth in Baking Soda and rub the stained area.

Use a mixture of 1/2 Baking Soda, 1/2 salt, sprinkle on carpets to kill ants and roaches. Leave on at least 15 minutes, vacuum well.

Use a dab of Baking Soda on the end of your toothbrush instead of toothpaste for clean and white teeth, makes for fresh breath too.

Add a 1/2 cup of Baking Soda to your bath for soft and smooth skin.

Use Baking Soda as a natural underarm deodorant.

Add a teaspoon of Baking Soda to your favorite shampoo once a week to help remove build up, leaving your hair soft and shiny.

Use Baking Soda as a deodorizer around the house: it works well in garbage cans, cat litter boxes and diaper pails. It even works to deodorize garbage disposals and dishwashers.

Use Baking Soda and water as a kitchen cleanser. Works great on sinks, refrigerators, cutting boards, coffee pots and more. I use it on the stove top and it removes grease wonderfully

Rub stainless steel and chrome with a moist cloth and dry Baking Soda to shine it up. Rinse and dry.

Baking Soda even works in the shower to remove soap residue.

Make your own baking powder, stir and sift together 2 parts of Cream of Tartar to 1 part Baking Soda and 1 part cornstarch.

Be sure to keep an extra box of Baking Soda by your stove in case of grease or electrical fire. Scatter the powder by the handful to safely put it out.

Clean vegetables and fruit with Baking Soda. Sprinkle in water, soak and rise the produce.

Remove burned-on food from a pan by allowing the pan to soak in Baking Soda and a moist scrubber.

Forget antacids: Take 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda in 1/2 glass of water to relieve acid indigestion or heartburn.

Making Play-doh Clay with 1 1/4 cups water, 2 cupsĀ  Baking Soda, 1 cup cornstarch.

Amazing stuff!

Non-toxic, economical, frugal and yet so simple!
