Chances are that you probably have a box of baking soda chilling at your kitchen. This white stuff, also known as sodium bicarbonate, can be used for many things. Here you can find some examples.
1. For face masks
A great beauty hack is to use baking soda to unclog pores and to exfoliate the skin gently. You can also combine it with lemon, which is a skin brightener or honey, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. That way, you can save some money and take good care of your skin!
2. Clean produce
As we all know, toxic chemicals are sprayed on non-organic fruits and vegetables to prevent germs and insects from damaging it. According to the study in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, sodium bicarbonate is proved to be the most effective solution for removing the pesticide from products. It turns out that only washing your products isn’t enough.
3. Freshen the air
Most air-fresheners contain concerning ingredients that can potentially cause cancer. Using a mix of baking soda and the essential oil is a great all-natural room spray.
4. Treating bug bites
Baking soda can provide relief from mosquito bites.
5. Sopping up oil spills
Accidentally spilling oil on your rug can be a problem. However, baking soda can be helpful for that as well.
6. Cleaning the teeth
Baking soda can be used to make your own toothpaste.
7. Deodorizing your carpet
Rugs absorb all kinds of smells, so the baking soda can be quite helpful to solve the problem.
