Baking Soda 

Baking Soda, also called sodium Bicarbonate, is a powdery white mineral that is used as a cleaning product. It has many uses around the house such as:

  • Best Uses for Baking¬†Soda

    In the Bathroom

    One rule of thumb: Baking soda is great at removing grease, grime, scum, and stinky smells just about everywhere.

    • Clean toilet bowls Add a quarter cup of baking soda and half a cup of white vinegar to an empty bowl. Bubbles will form! Scrub with a stiff brush and flush. Repeat if necessary. A damp cloth sprinkled with baking soda will also clean the outside surfaces of the toilet, tank and¬†cover.
    • Clean faucets and door handle Make a thick paste of baking soda and a bit of water, apply to grimy areas, and scrub with a stiff brush (For the tightest spots, I use an old toothbrush. I save all my toothbrushes for tasks like this). Rinse off immediately, or let it dry and rinse¬†later.
    • Soak toothbrushes in baking soda and warm water overnight to clean the bristles.
    • Keep your rubber gloves dry and smelling good by sprinkling baking soda inside them. They‚Äôll slip on more easily¬†too!
    • Pour a cup of baking soda into the opening of your clogged drain and then add a cup of hot¬†vinegar. After a few minutes, flush the drain with a quart of boiling¬†water.

    In the Kitchen

    • Scrub coffee mugs, tea cups,¬† and carafes:¬†Sprinkle the inside of the mug or container with baking soda and gently scrub with a moist cloth to remove the stains. Then give the mug or container a thorough¬†rinse.
    • Remove burned-on foods from stainless steel cookware Add plenty of baking soda to the pot/pan with enough water to form a thick slurry, let sit (minutes, hours, or overnight), and go to it with a fresh scrubbing pad. Repeat as¬†necessary.
    • Clean your refrigerator with a solution of one-teaspoon baking soda to one quart of warm¬†water.
    • Sprinkle a teaspoon of baking soda on the bottom of your toaster oven to eliminate the burned smell from drippings and¬†crumbs.
    • To remove pesticides, dirt, and wax from fresh fruits and vegetables, wash them in a large bowl of cool water to which you‚Äôve added two to three tablespoons of baking¬†soda.
    • A paste of baking soda removes red sauce stains from¬†plastic.
    • Pour a cup of baking soda into the opening of your clogged drain and then add a cup of hot¬†vinegar. After a few minutes, flush the drain with a quart of boiling¬†water.

    Cooking and Baking

    • Make fluffier omelets.¬† A pinch (¬ľ teaspoon or less) in your morning eggs as you whip them up will make your omelettes or scrambled eggs¬†fluffier.
    • Make the best cookies! In a project intended to find the best leavening agent for chocolate-chip cookies, the folks at BuzzFeed baked 400 cookies comparing various agents and discovered that baking-soda-only cookies won hands down. Prove them¬†wrong!
    • Add a pinch of baking soda to boiled syrup to prevent it from¬†crystallizing.

    For Health

    • Clean teeth The antibacterial properties of baking powder help reduce bacterial plaques that cause tooth decay and gum disease, while its mild abrasive quality helps remove light staining. Mix a little baking soda with a few drops of water to make a thick paste, wet brush, coat teeth with paste, cover with paste, brush gently, and rinse¬†well.
    • Add baking soda to your bath water to¬†relieve sunburned or itchy skin.
    • Make a paste of baking soda and water, and apply to a burn or an¬†insect bite¬†for¬†relief.
    • If you crave sweets, rinse your mouth with one-teaspoon baking soda dissolved in a glass of warm water. Don‚Äôt swallow the mixture; spit it out. Your craving should disappear¬†instantly.
    • For freshening breath, add a spoonful of baking soda to a glass of warm water (or peppermint tea), and swoosh the mixture around in your mouth for 30 seconds or more before spitting it¬†out.¬†
    • Ease occasional heartburn/indigestion: The standard dose for this old-fashioned remedy is half a teaspoon of baking soda in half a cup of water. If you have frequent heartburn or other digestive problems, see a¬†doctor.

    On Clothing

    • To remove perspiration stains, make a thick paste of baking soda and water. Rub paste into the stain, let it sit for an hour, and then launder as usual.¬†
    • Gasoline and oil odours can be removed by putting clothes in a trash bag with baking soda for a few days before washing¬†them.
    • Remove odours from smelly shoes. Liberally sprinkle baking soda inside shoes (and under the inserts, too). Place shoes in a large paper bag and leave overnight. When you‚Äôre ready to go again, shake out the¬†soda.¬†
    • Remove stains on hat bands. Mix up a few tablespoons of white vinegar with a squirt of spray around the inside of a baseball or athletic cap a mixture of a quarter cup of white vinegar mixed with a tablespoon of liquid detergent. Then sprinkle baking soda liberally around the brim Apply to the brim and let the hat sit for up to an hour. Spray with distilled white vinegar and give the stain another short scrub. Rinse clean in cold water. Pat dry with a towel and allow the hat to air dry¬†completely.
    • Clean a steam iron When the ironing surface (soleplate) gets grubby, scrub it gently with a paste of baking soda and water. Let it dry before brushing it off with a soft brush. If that doesn‚Äôt quite do the trick, soak a small towel or washcloth in white vinegar, lay it on newspapers on the ironing board, and sprinkle baking soda. Then ‚Äúiron‚ÄĚ the towel back and forth without plugging the iron¬†in.¬†

    For Your Dog

    • Freshen up your smelly dog! Liberally sprinkle your smelly dog¬†¬†(outdoors if possible) all over, avoiding the face, with baking soda, massage it in well so it coats the skin, and leave it for a few minutes to absorb the offending odours. Then give your dog a good brushing. Additional advantages of a baking soda bath: It imparts lustre to the coat, soothes the doggie‚Äôs skin, and kills fleas and other¬†parasites.

    In the Car

    • Deodorize your car (or trunk) by sprinkling baking soda on the upholstery and floor mats. Let it sit for a few hours before vacuuming it up, removing any extra baking soda with a damp cloth. Some people keep their ashtrays filled with baking¬†soda.¬†
    • A light baking soda paste on a damp cloth will remove bugs and tar from cars without damaging the paint. Let the paste sit for a few minutes before wiping and rinsing¬†clean.

    Miscellaneous Uses

    • Deodorize stinky hands. After cutting fish or handling other smelly items, dust your hands well with baking soda and scrub them under running warm water for a few¬†seconds.
    • Freshen trash bins. Just sprinkle the inside of your kitchen and bathroom trash cans, or inside the trash bags themselves. Once a year, I take mine outside and scrub with a little liquid detergent and a strong spray of the garden¬†hose.
    • Lay down a barrier of baking soda under sink-pipe openings and along basement windows to keep carpenter ants, silverfish, and roaches from invading. Roaches eat the baking soda, dehydrate, and¬†die.
    • Sprinkling baking soda on your front steps will provide traction and melt the ice. Unlike rock salt, kitty litter, or sand, it won‚Äôt damage outdoor or indoor surfaces or¬†shoes.

    *Don’t use baking soda for cleaning glass surfaces, silverware, stone countertops, and wooden floors or furniture. Also, dermatologists warn against using baking soda routinely as a dry shampoo or underarm deodorant, because its alkalinity will disrupt the natural acidity of skin and scalp.
