Beyond Baking: The Benefits Of Baking Soda

PhotoHere are just a few of the many common household uses of baking soda, a great replacement for more toxic alternatives!
Clean: Make a paste of baking soda and water to scrub away grime, from dirt and soap scum to crayon marks on the walls.
Combat fridge odors: Place a tray of baking soda in your fridge to absorb strong food odors.
Freshen musty upholstery, carpets and pet beds: Sprinkle surfaces with baking soda, let sit for 15 minutes, then vacuum it up.
Clear a slow-running drain: Pour half a cup of baking soda into the drain, followed by half a cup of vinegar. Cover with a wet cloth. Leave for five minutes and then flush thoroughly with hot water.
