Baking soda…

…is a very useful ingredient in the kitchen, but it is also an amazing cleaner and deodorizer.

*Mix a tablespoon with some water to make a paste and now you’re ready to scrub away grime from hard surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom.

*Throw some in your next load of laundry to make it fresher and to use less detergent.

*Use it in your dishwasher to reduce the amount of detergent you use there.

*Sprinkle baking soda on the carpet and let it sit for a few hours and then vacuum it up-this can remove unwanted odors and may help to reduce mold.

*Dump some in your smelly kitchen sink drain and let it sit for a while before rinsing. Or even wash it down with vinegar if the drain is somewhat clogged!

*Use it to absorb odors in your refrigerator or freezer.

*You can even brush your teeth with baking soda!

Are there any other ways that you use it?
