I have recently discovered the
8th wonder of the world: Baking Soda. It's so gall dang versatile,
it makes my head spin. Here's a few things I do with the old
Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (aside from exfoliating
and bathing with it)
Gross kitchen towels will
smell a lot better if you soak them in 1/2 cup of baking soda
and water for about an hour before you put them in the wash.
Clean your bath tub and sink with the magic
powder instead of harsh cleansers. Takes a little elbow grease
but it's worth it for the environment (and septic tank, if you're
on a septic tank)
Slow drains? pour some baking soda in the
drain, then just like that old science project, pour some vinegar
on top of it and it will clear your drain and save the whales.
Well it probably won't save the whales, but I'm sure it'll be
Out of dishwasher detergent? Fill the detergent
dish 1/2 full then drop 1-2 drops of dishwashing soap on top
of it. You can now run the dishwasher without having to make
a mad dash to the store.
