Ditch the traditional solutions and use baking soda for cleaning your entire home

Nowadays you can get a staggering range of cleaning products. Even though it’s becoming easier to get environmentally-friendly, natural products, a lot of what you can get in your local supermarket or drugstore contain harsh chemicals. Luckily, there are also cheap and widely available solutions such as baking soda, citric acid, or vinegar. By having these staples and discovering the uses of baking soda for cleaning, you’ll be able to save a lot of space (they can replace a lot of single-use cleaning supplies!), and keep nasty chemicals away from your home.

7 Creative Uses For Baking Soda For Cleaning

Baking soda has multiple uses around the entire household

At SPIC AND SPAN. we did some extensive research to provide you with the most useful and creative uses of baking soda for cleaning.

It’s really surprising to discover that a lot of cleaning advice suggests mixing vinegar with baking soda to obtain an all-purpose cleaner. Since vinegar is an acid and baking soda is an alkaline, they undergo a chemical reaction and neutralize each other. It’s a much better idea to use vinegar and baking soda for cleaning separately since then they keep their properties.

Make a multi-purpose surface cleaner

Use baking soda for cleaning all surfaces in your home! Add 1 or 2 tablespoons to a spray bottle filled with water and get down to cleaning.

Clean the oven

Forget about scrubbing! Sprinkle some baking soda in your oven and add some water to obtain the consistency of a thick paste. Leave it there for a few hours or overnight, and remove the dirt easily! You can find out more about cleaning the oven here

Deodorize the fridge

You can use baking soda for cleaning and scrubbing the inside of your fridge, but it also has great odor-absorbing properties. Put a small bowl or a plate filled with baking soda there, and make your fridge never smell funny again.

Unclog the drain

Ditch those aggressive chemicals. When your drain is clogged, pour a cup of baking soda and follow with a cup of vinegar. The chemical reaction will take place, causing everything to foam up. Then pour some hot water down the train and it’s done!
