You may know that baking soda is great for absorbing odors in your refrigerator or putting out small grease fires, but there’s more to this inexpensive and readily available ingredient that you may not have heard of. From clearing drains to clearing your acne, try these 24 ways to use baking soda for a cheap and easy replacement for expensive cleaners and cosmetics.
Cleaning Clean Counter tops: Sprinkle baking soda over your entire counter top, or on stains and spills. Allow to sit for five to 15 minutes, then wipe away with a damp cloth or sponge.
Clean Brushes: Soak household and cosmetic brushes in a solution of baking soda and water to cleanse.
Kitchen Surface Cleaner: Make a paste by combining baking soda and water, then cover your stove, oven, kitchen counter and sink. Allow to sit for five to 15 minutes, then wipe or scrub away.
Clean Drains: For clogged drains, pour three quarters of a cup of baking soda down them, followed by one cup of vinegar. The two ingredients will combine and fizz, helping to clear the drain. After 15 minutes, flush with very hot to boiling water.
Laundry Booster: Pour one half cup to one full cup of baking soda into your washing machine to help clean and freshen clothing.
Clean Pots, Pans & Dishes: Remove tough stuck-on food stains by making a paste of baking soda and water. Allow to set for several minutes, then wipe or scrub away.
Freshen Carpets: Sprinkle one box of baking soda over your carpet, and allow to sit for at least one hour. Vacuum when finished.
Freshen Cat Litter Boxes: Pour baking soda into your cat litter box to help fight smells.
Air Freshener: Place an open box of baking soda, or a decorative jar filled with baking soda, anywhere you’d like to freshen the air. Place an open box in the back of your refrigerator and freezer to remove bad food smells as well.
Deodorize Trashcans: Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom of trashcans around your home to keep garbage from smelling.
Clean Children’s Toys: Avoid using dangerous chemical cleaners on your kids’ toys by soaking them in a mixture of baking soda and water instead.
Clean Your Grill: Sprinkle baking soda and water on your grill to help remove burnt on food.
Clean Silver: Fill your sink with water, then place a sheet of aluminum foil on the bottom. Sprinkle baking soda and two teaspoons of salt into the water, then place silver items on the foil. Tarnish will be removed or easily wiped off.
Cleanse Produce: Make sure your fruits and vegetables are clean before eating them by soaking them in a mixture of water and one-quarter cup of baking soda. Rinse thoroughly.
Remove Tough Odors From Skin: To get rid of smelly foods from your hands, clean with a paste of baking soda and water.
