There are many uses of baking soda that most people don’t know about. In the video I have explored three of those, hoping to show you how to do it while trying it for the first time myself as well. However, as promised, here is a list and some websites with more ideas on how to use this brilliantly cheap, eco-friendly miracle powder!
Just a pre-warning: make sure you rinse it off/out thoroughly. I can imagine the grains can stay in small places for a long time.
- Use it as deodorant: Apply powder under your arms with a powder puff (don’t rinse in this case)
- Put some in your shoes to remove bad smells
- Clean windows with a solution of it
- Put some powder in a small open container and place it in your fridge to keep it odour-free.
- Add to shampoo to remove any remaining hair products (gel, mousse, etc) and make it shiny and full of volume.
- Add a little to you bathwater to soften your skin
- Put a little bit of the paste onto a rash or insect bite to calm it down and reduce the itching
- Add to flower water to keep flowers fresh
- Wash your fruit and beg with it for super clean food
- Decrease the acidic flavour from tomato dishes by adding a little baking powder.
- It can be used to extinguish fires (grease, electric)
- Soak a used old mop in baking soda for a while, and it’ll smell fresh again
- To unclog a drain, throw a couple of cups of baking soda followed by boiling water down it to get rid of smelly, obstructing residues
- The paste works as a good stain remover before throwing it in the washing machine
- Add to your toothpaste for a whiter, cleaner smile
