Top Ten Tuesday: Uses for Baking Soda

I know, It sounds weird, a blog post with the focus on baking soda. 

Let me preface with the fact that this product is amazing and I am going to share with you why in these top ten uses for it! 

Baking Soda is an environmentally friendly product and a natural neutralizer.

1. With it being sunburn season again, I thought this first use would be appreciated. Soothe your sunburn by soaking in a lukewarm bath with a generous amount of baking soda (about half the box). 

2. It can be used for an all purpose cleaner with Dawn dish soap and vinegar.

3. Cooking purposes, obviously.

4. In the kitchen, every refrigerator and freezer can benefit from an open box of baking soda in it to protect itself from unwanted odors.

5. As a glass stove top clean up, use baking soda and water in a solution or paste and you will keep the original finish.

6. Dealing with pet accidents of any form is no fun. My husband and I would be the first to tell you how much baking soda benefited us while living in a tiny loft in downtown Chattanooga with a claustrophobic lab (I diagnosed her myself). 
Cover the infected area with baking soda, let it sit for awhile and it will not only help to remove the stain by soaking up the moisture, but the odor as well!

7. For laundry purposes, baking soda will help you rid of dirt, grime, and unwanted odors from soiled clothing and household linens. It will help whiten, brighten, and freshen. 

8. Keep your hands soft by sprinkling baking soda in dish water when washing the dishes.

9. This product can be used for immediate relief from a bee sting or bug bite by making a paste and patting it on the infected area. 
PS: When removing a bee/wasp stinger, always scrap it out with something such as a credit card, don't pluck it out because you may leave some behind.

10. When washing new baby clothes to remove any chemical finishes, wash them in a mild soap and 1/2 cup of baking soda. 

This is only TEN reasons people, this product can be used for so much more!

Do you have any tips and tricks for baking soda that you would like to share?
