Baking soda is like magic. There, we said it. This common little compound is cheap, readily available, and often more effective at getting things clean than pricey, chemical-laced, specialty cleaning products.
You probably already have a box of baking soda sitting around that you use for baking. Maybe you even figured out that a box of baking soda in the fridge helps to absorb odors. But did you know that baking soda can also help you clean your entire house?
Grab a box of 100% sodium bicarbonate and get ready to enjoy a deeper clean for a fraction of the cost!
1. Scrub your kitchen
It’s so easy to achieve a sparkling clean kitchen using nothing but baking soda. Simply sprinkle a bit of baking soda on all the dirty surfaces and follow up with a wet rag, sponge, or microfiber cloth. Baking soda has no smell, but you can add a few drops of essential oil (lemon works well) if you prefer a subtle scent.
