I save big bucks every year by using Arm & Hammer baking soda in place of expensive cleaning and beauty products.
Cleaning with Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
For cleaning I use a combination of baking soda and vinegar almost exclusively – for tile grout, stainless steel hardware, toilets, countertops, and on and on.
One of my favorite uses is in the toilet – did you know that dumping 1/4 c. of baking soda into your toilet will completely absorb and neutralize any bathroom odors? Try it. You’ll be shocked and amazed, especially if you have little boys with bad aim at your house like I do… I also use baking soda to clean all around the toilet and it works better than anything else I’ve tried.
Baking soda is great for other stinky places like trash cans. We keep a little baking soda in the bottom of the most offensive trash cans and it makes a huge difference!
Here are some other ways to use Arm & Hammer around the house:
- gently scrub fruits and vegetables to remove dirt and chemicals
- polish silverware and jewelry
- sprinkle on carpets/upholstery and vacuum to deodorize
- add to mashed potatoes for fluffier texture
