22 Baking Soda Uses for Cleaning, Personal Care, and Remedies
Baking soda is non-toxic, cheap and it WORKS. Here are 22 baking soda uses for cleaning, personal care, and home remedies.
1. Make a soft scrub
This all-purpose version makes sinks, tubs and counters shine
2. Use it as scouring powder
You can use it as a solo ingredient or with a few other ingredients to give it more cleaning power. I use the scouring powder recipe pictured above.
3. Freshen and deodorize carpets
Mix one cup baking soda with 18-20 drops essential oil (if desired – I like lavender and frankincense) and sprinkle over rug. Allow it to sit for at least 20 minutes, then vacuum.
4. Deodorize garbage cans
Sprinkle a little in the bottom of the can before placing a fresh bag in to keep odor under control. If a deeper clean is needed, mix one cup of baking soda in one gallon of hot water, then pour it into the bottom of the can and allow it to soak overnight.
