Rejuvenates Your Tired Skin
Ladies, listen up – you can happily skip your expensive spa treats and watch baking soda create the same wonders for your skin. It works as an excellent foot scrub, so soak up its warmth in a tub of baking soda mixed with water. Discard the branded bath salts, and add a spoon on baking soda to your luxurious bath. You can even use it as soap during your shower, as it also blesses you with its exfoliating properties.
And for the men, revitalize yourself after a tough workout with a baking soda aided shower (use it like soap). This will re-energize your tired muscles and help you relax faster.
The humble baking soda is indeed a unique gift that works wonders for both men and women!
Works as an Active Deodorizer
And we mean “active” beyond your imagination! So this little agent here can deodorize all your cabinets, the fridge and microwave, kitchen utensils (even your cutting board), storage boxes (like your lunch box), household equipment such as the dishwasher and your vacuum cleaner, pet bedding and toys, kitchen and bathroom drains, garbage disposals and litter boxes, and plenty more.
And we do mean more – housekeeping experts even advise its use to drive the stink away from your musty carpet. Oh, and don’t forget to use them to clean up and whiten your smelly shoes. What a Godsend!
Enhances your Garden’s Beauty
This little element can fortify your garden in several ways. Are your home-grown tomatoes more on the sour side? Scatter a spoon of baking soda in its soil, and watch the tomatoes sweeten. Need a natural way to get rid of garden pests? Create a liquid with one spoon baking soda, quarter cup oil. Use 2-3 spoons of this mixture with 1 liter of water, and happily spray it on all your plants. The rodents and nasty insects will vanish, even as your roses begin to thrive.
In fact, gardening experts often use a mild spray of baking soda to make flowers bloom quicker and bigger. And if you are in the habit of exhibiting the best flora from your garden in your home in a vase, add a pinch of baking soda to its water. The flowers will stay fresh, longer.
You might wonder how this rather banal cooking ingredient has so many brilliant uses outside the kitchen. Baking soda is one heck of a neutralizer, effectively balancing anything that has too much acid or alkaline content. This is what makes it so effective on toxic material – in our kitchen, on our floors, out in the garden, or even within our body.Related: 13 Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

And here is where we ask you – why use a middleman (and a toxic one at that), when you can get your hands on the original, so easily and cheaply? Yes, this is what makes baking soda a winner for you!
