Why baking soda is a magical product to help you clean?
Baking soda is a relatively inexpensive product that you can find almost everywhere. You can use it for cooking but it is also a great product for cleaning! Very efficient and natural, it can help you clean almost anything!
Here are 10 uses of baking soda for cleaning your house:
1- Clean your microwave: use a wet sponge and baking soda to wipe the inside of your microwave and then rinse it. You can also put some water and baking soda in a bowl and start the microwave.
2- Clean marks on your walls. Your kids performed their drawing skills on your walls? A damp sponge and baking soda will remove all the marks easily.
3- Remove any odour on your carpets by putting some bicarbonate of soda on it and leaving it for 4 hours. Then just vacuum, the smell magically will go away! This is great if you have pets or bad smelly stains.
4- Make your oven shine. Prepare a paste with baking soda and water and spread it inside your oven. Leave it for 3 hours and wipe it with water. An easier way to do this is to prepare a liquid solution rather than a paste and put it in a spray. Spray it inside your oven and leave it for the night. The following day, wipe it with water.
5- Clean your blender’s blade. No need to take the blades out anymore! Just pour water until it fills half of your blender and add a spoon of bicarbonate of soda and just a little bit of dishwashing liquid. Start it and leave it on for 15 seconds. Rinse it with water: you got clean blades easily!
6- Clean your dishwasher. A spoonful of baking soda inside your dishwasher will ensure everything will be very clean and odourless.
7- Clean your floors. Mopping your floors with baking soda and water will help you get rid of the thoughest stains.
8- Clean greasy dishes. You have a lot of greasy dirty burned dishes to wash by hand? Just fill your sink with hot water and sprinkle a few teaspoons of baking soda on your pots. Leave them soak for 20 minutes and then wash them as usual. All the grease will go away very easily!
9- Clean your clothes. Put a tablespoon full of bicarbonate with your laundry in the washing machine, it will help the stains to be removed and the odours to go away! Note: do not use on wool or silk as it could damage your clothes
10- Clean your bathroom. If you are having a hard time cleaning your bathtub, your sinks or your shower, and you can’t seem to get rid of all the stains, bicarbonate of soda can save you! Just prepare a paste with baking soda and water and scrub.
