"Baking Soda" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Dishwasher deodorant. If you use your dishwasher less than once a day, toss a handful of baking soda into the bottom between washes.
 

2. Wallpaper washer. Remove resistant smudges from wallpaper by rubbing them with a thick baking powder paste. (Test first in an inconspicuous corner.)
 

3. Furniture blancher. To spruce up white painted furniture, wash it with a solution of 1 tablespoon baking soda in 1 quart warm water.
 

4. Grill scourer. To remove grease and encrusted food from the rack, soak it in a solution of ¼ cup baking soda per quart of warm water. For tough stains put baking soda on a damp sponge and scrub.
 

5. Dog shampoo. To add softness and luster to your pet’s coat, put 2 tablespoons baking soda in its bathwater. Baking soda also works well as a dry shampoo for your dog.
 

6. Sting salve. A paste of baking soda and water will ease the discomfort of bee stings.
 

7. Battery saver. Eliminate acid build up on car battery terminals—apply a paste of 3 parts baking soda and 1 pal water with a toothbrush; rinse with water and wipe dry. Wear safety goggles and rubber gloves to protect eyes and hands.
 

8. Skin emollient. For softer, smoother skin, add ½ cup baking soda to your bathwater.
