Uses for Baking Soda

Baking soda is commonly used for baking cakes and other foods. But baking soda may also be used for many other things in the home and on the body. A box of baking soda can be at grocery stores or dollar stores, and the price for a small box is usually $1.00.

Many people use baking soda for brushing their teeth; this makes the teeth cleaner and the breath fresher. If you put an opened box of baking soda in your refrigerator it will help to fight old food odors or onion smells on other foods. Also pouring baking soda down into the garbage disposal will help it to get rid of odors.

We use it in the fridge and in the hot tub too. My wife is a fabric artist and some dyeing processes call for baking soda too. Good information here.
