Baking soda is one of those things… it never ceases to give me reasons to love it more!

I use it all the time. Aside from using it for baking, I use it as a household cleaner in my kitchen and bathroom. I use it to eliminate odors and to remove stains on a regular basis. But I have discovered even more uses for this lovely, thrifty product, so I thought I’d share them with you.

Cleaning produce. Baking soda makes for a quick, easy way to clean your produce. Just sprinkle some onto a damp cloth and wipe that fruit or those veggies right off. Talk about easy.

Clean brushes and combs. Just add about a teaspoon of baking soda to a small amount of warm water. Soak the brushes and combs in the water for as long as you’d like to. Then, rinse and dry. Done.

Brighten clothes. Add a cup of baking soda to a load of laundry to help clean and brighten up your clothes.

Put out a grease fire. Did you know that if you sprinkle baking soda by the handful over a grease fire, you can put it out? I had no idea.

Got dandruff? Just ditch your shampoo for a few days and rub baking soda onto your wet scalp instead. That should do the trick.

Iced tea. Use just a pinch of baking soda to reduce the bitterness and to remove the cloudiness of the iced tea. Who knew?

Weeds. Sprinkle baking soda into the cracks on your driveway and sidewalks to discourage weeds from growing.

Clean a toilet. To clean a toilet, just pour 1/4 cup of baking soda into the bowl and scrub.

Exfoliate. Mix 3 parts of baking soda to one part water to create a scrub. Apply to your skin in a circular motion and then rinse.

Isn’t baking soda fun? What do you do with it?
