I have to tell you all how much I LOVE baking soda! It is the ultimate green cleaning tool.
Hate cleaning your oven or stained pots/pans? Take baking soda and water, make a paste, spread it on, let it sit and dry then wipe it off with a wet rag. No more stains! Not only does it get your oven super clean but it keeps you from wasting electricity by running the cleaning cycle on your oven.
It's great in the laundry! Need whiter whites? Add a little baking soda to your wash...much more eco-friendly than bleach.
Got a ring around your tub? Again, make a paste with baking soda and water, spread it on, let it dry, and wipe off...you're left with a sparkling clean tub!
It's just abrasive enough for stuck on stains but doesn't scratch glass, steel or other items.
Got a smelly pet stain? Sprinkle baking soda on, let it sit and pull the smell/moisture up and out and vacuum away! No smelly stain and no harsh carpet cleaners.
Do you have other ways you use baking soda? What are your tips and tricks?
