Top Baking Soda uses, tips, and tricks!!

Baking Soda, The unexpected secret to a cleaner fresher home for less.  For over 165 years Baking soda has been a pure, natural and inexpensive staple in homes everywhere.  Baking soda can be used in countless ways to care for you and your household all for about One dollar!!

Here are a few great tips on how to put that little orange box to use!

Hair Cleanser:

Sprinkle a small amount (quarter size) of  Baking Soda into the palm of your hand along with your favorite shampoo.  Shampoo as usual and rinse thoroughly.  The baking soda helps remove the residue that styling products leave behind.  Your hair will be cleaner and more manageable!  No more spending an arm and a leg on over priced clarifying shampoos!!

Laundry Booster:

Give your laundry a boost by adding one cup of  baking soda to your laundry to make your detergent work harder for you and your family!  A better balance of pH in the wash helps to get clothes cleaner, fresher, and brighter!  Arm and Hammer now offers a 13.5 lb. resealable bag which gives you an easy additive to use in your wash :)

Musty Laundry Odors:

Do you ever get busy like me and forget to put your clean clothes in the dryer in time and they get that musty scent?  That scent is horrible and hard to get out of your clothes!  Get your clothes and towels clothesline fresh by adding 1/2 c baking soda to their rinse cycle!

Do you have a funky fridge or freezer?

Place the orange box inside your fridge or freezer to absorb any funky odors that can spoil the flavor of your fresh food!  Change the box out every 30 days to keep your foods tasting fresher longer!

Clean pots and pans:

Eliminate the burden of scrubbing pots and pans!  Baking soda penetrates and helps lift baked on foods.  Shake a generous amount of baking soda on your pan add dish soap and hot water.  Let sit for 15 minutes and wash as usual.

Now for some fun!!  Arm and Hammer Water Colors :)
