Ten Uses for Baking Soda

Our Kitchen Tip this week is all about Baking Soda.  It's more than just a box that sits in your refrigerator and it's more than just a teaspoon to add to a recipe.  Here are a few more ways you can incorporate baking soda around your house...


  • Keep Cut Flowers Longer:  A teaspoon of baking soda added to fresh cut flowers will help keep them looking pretty.  
  • Get Rid of Stinky Shoe Smell:  Sprinkle smelly shoes with a little baking soda to help get rid of odors.  
  • Cleaner Dishes:  Add a tablespoon to the dishwasher or the dish water as you wash the dishes.
  • Laundry:  Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to your washing machine for cleaner clothes.
  • Hair Rinse:  Combine a few tablespoons of baking soda with shampoo to make a paste.  This will help remove any buildup in your hair.  
  • Clean Combs and Brushes:  Add one teaspoon of baking soda to warm water and soak your combs and brushes to remove product buildup.  
  • Drain Opener:  Pour baking soda down your drain, followed by some vinegar.  Let sit for awhile and then pour boiling water.  This will help unclog the drain without using harsh chemicals.  
  • Foot Soak:  Add three tablespoons of baking soda to warm water to soak your feet.  
  • Clean the Microwave:  Add a little baking soda to a damp sponge to gently wipe your microwave clean.  
  • Deodorize Cutting Boards:  Sprinkle your cutting board with baking soda and scrub with warm water.
