It’s an essential for your mom’s amazing peanut butter cookies, but baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, has the power to freshen and clean seemingly countless spots in your home. It’s a super effective yet gentle abrasive and is a great natural deodorizer, so it’s helpful in all sorts of household emergencies.
Here are some great ways to use baking soda (it would blow your mind).
1. Refresh a Bad Odour Fridge
Don’t worry about last night’s grocery purchase that will leave your fridge smelling like a fish market for months to come. Place a cup of baking soda in the fridge and it will help to absorb strong food odours so they don’t linger or affect the taste of neighbouring foods.
2. Unclogging The Sink
Clogged sink can be a pain and impressively inconvenient and smelly! An immediate and quick fix is to mix baking soda with vinegar and it will cut through smoothly. You can also use baking soda to clean the sink’s drain to prevent clogging. Add a cup of baking soda and let is sit for an hour. Then, pour in two cups of boiled vinegar; you will have a clean drain with minimal effort.
3. Deep-clean Extra Greasy Dishes and Pans
We’re not sure why some dishes and pans are harder to clean up than others. Combat the grime by sprinkling some baking soda then scrub. If it’s really really greasy, give it a hot water soak after sprinkling some baking soda, it will help to dissolve stuck-on grease and makes cleaning so much easier!
4. Coffee & Tea Stains Removal
The mug that you have your coffee or tea every morning tends to get stained few months down the road. Instead of replacing your mugs, wash them with a quarter cup of baking soda and warm water. If the stain is stubborn, try soaking overnight with baking soda and some detergent. It should work magic.
5. Clean Up Your Doodled Wall & Floor
With children around, it is impossible to have stainless walls and floor. So when your children’s’ artistic efforts end up all over your home, use a damp sponge sprinkled with baking soda and scrub lightly. You should be able to get rid of those messy doodles.
How amazing is baking soda? Everyone should have a dozen or two at home for such chores.
