Baking Soda Cleaning Is Economical and Efficient

Baking soda cleaning is a great alternative to using commercial cleaning products.

Baking soda makes a great multi-purpose cleaner, is non-toxic and is wonderfully cheap, especially when purchased in bulk. Baking soda, also known as bicarbonate of soda has a great many uses besides cleaning, such as cooking and medical uses.

Here are just a few of the many jobs baking soda cleaning does around the house.

Bathroom

  • Weekly, pour a half cup of baking soda down your bathroom drains and then run the hot water. This helps keep your bathroom drains from clogging.

  • Make a paste of one part water to three parts baking soda and apply this to stubborn stains. Let it sit for a while and then scrub with a soft brush. Rinse this off using hot water.

Kitchen

  • To remove juice stains from your countertop, sprinkle a little baking soda onto a damp sponge or cloth. Rub the juice stain with the cloth using a circular motion. For stubborn juice stains, pour the baking soda onto the stain and then use a damp cloth to rub this in a circular motion.

  • Sprinkle baking soda into the bottom of pots and pans, with burnt-on food. Add hot water and then leave this overnight to soak. The burnt-on food will come off very easily. Wash as usual.

  • In a bucket, add some baking soda to your wash water to clean the inside and outside of your refrigerator. This removes odors and makes your fridge smell fresh.

  • Use baking soda mixed in warm water to clean your kitchen garbage pail. Sprinkle some baking soda in the bottom of the garbage bag to remove odor.

  • To remove grease spills or black scuffmarks off the kitchen floor, baking soda cleaning does a great job. Just sprinkle baking soda on the spill or stain and rub with a damp, warm cloth.

  • Clean silverware by making a paste of one part water to three parts baking soda. Use a soft cloth to rub the paste onto the silverware. Wash the silverware in warm water and then use a soft cloth to dry.

Miscellaneous Uses

  • Sprinkle a layer of baking soda in the bottom of the cats litter box to prevent odors.

  • When doing laundry, add half laundry soap and half baking soda to the wash water. This will keep your clothes smelling fresh.

  • To remove mildew when cleaning a child's pool, use baking soda mixed in warm water. Rinse out using the hose.

  • Cleaning lawn furniture is quick and easy using a quart of warm water with a quarter cup of baking soda dissolved in it.
