Things You May Not Have Known About Baking Soda

Everybody knows that you are supposed to put a box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in the fridge to help with odors and for freshness, right? Well do you know that you can also use baking soda in your laundry? To clean your toilet? To deodorize your shoes? I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t, and I’m really sad about the savings I have missed out on over the years by not knowing the facts about Baking Soda. Recently I accepted a mission from Smiley 360 to test out the many uses of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda with my Spring Cleaning. This mission ended up being a complete learning experience for me.

If you start researching a little bit you will find that you can use baking soda for pretty much everything. I think it is amazing that this little $1.00, yellow box has so much power. Baking. Cleaning. Deodorizing. Polishing. Freshening. Repelling. Degreasing. This list goes on. It’s great. Below I’ve listed a few of my favorite ways I found that you can use it in your home, outdoors, for baby, and even for you!

 

In The Home And Outdoors

  1. Carpet Deodorizer – Sprinkle baking soda over your carpet before vacuuming. 232
  2. Litter Box – Sprinkle in box to help with odor.
  3. Degreaser – Washes greasy pots and pans.
  4. Stainless Steel/Chrome Cleaner – Make a paste of baking soda and water to polish stainless steel and chrome.
  5. Laundry Booster – Add in to your laundry as a booster. About a handful does well.
  6. Toilet Cleaner – Put a cup of baking soda in the toilet for an hour and flush. Voila!
  7. Cars – Wipe on windshield to repel the rain.
  8. Shower Curtains – Soak your shower curtain in baking soda and water to get the yuck off.
  9. All Purpose Cleaner – Use it to clean mirrors, class, porcelain, fridge, trash can, shoes, the grill, and more.
  10. Baby Bottles and Diapers – Use baking soda and hot water to clean diapers and bottles!

Personal Hygiene, First Aid, Baby

  1. Jellyfish – Apply to sting to help bring out the venom.
  2. Deodorant – Apply like a powder under your arms.
  3. Toothpaste -Mix Peroxide Paste and 1/2 tsp. of baking soda
  4. Diaper Rash – Apply some baking soda to baby’s bath to help relieve diaper rash. (2 tbsp.)
  5. Itch Relief – Apply to insect bites or sunburn to help with itching.
  6. Fires – Put out small fires with baking soda.

 

Honestly how many of those did you know about? Now that you see all these ways you can use baking soda does it make you sick to think of how much you have spent on cleaning products? Now we are in the know though. Baking Soda has become my new best house cleaning friend.
