As more people become educated about potentially dangerous chemicals in their household and personal care products, the more natural products are showing up on the shelves of health food stores, pharmacies and even grocery stores. These natural products can be quite expensive and don’t fit neatly into everyone’s budget. But baking soda is an inexpensive, non-toxic chemical that can take the place of many products we use to clean our body and our home.
How Can Baking Soda be Used?
People have even written books about how many things you can do with baking soda, but here are the highlights:
- Toothpaste – either simply dip your toothbrush into the baking soda or add a little hydrogen peroxide
- Mouthwash – add ½ teaspoon to water and gargle
- Deodorant – just dust it under your arms
- Body and facial scrub – mix with a little pure water to exfoliate, soothe and neutralize acid
- Itch powder – good for the itch of insect bites and bee stings
- Hand cleaner – mix with water, and scrub
- Shampoo – remove residue by adding a little baking soda to your shampoo
- Clean the kitchen and bathroom – sprinkle on a sponge and rub counter-tops, stove, oven, refrigerator, toilet, tub, and no-wax and tile floors. Also great for coffee and tea stains on cups or pots.
- Laundry – a ½ cup per load makes clothes cleaner and brighter
- Oil and grease – stains in the driveway or garage come off more easily with baking soda on a wet brush
- Car – clean your car lights, chrome, windows, tires, vinyl seats and floor mats, no scratches
- Deodorize – just about anything. Baking soda absorbs smells. Place an open box in the area or sprinkle the baking soda on directly.
Just think of all the chemicals you’ll be able to avoid in your home and on your body if you follow that list.
Chemicals in personal care and household products are everywhere. And they’re being increasingly associated with health problems. Help keep your family well by tossing the chemicals, and bringing on the baking soda.
