#1 Household Cleaner
Baking soda gets rid of grease and grime with little or no effort. You can use it mixed with essential oils instead of proprietary kitchen and bathroom surface cleaners, and you can add a little lemon juice to the mixture for added effect. You can use this homemade household cleaner to make grimy pots and pans easy to clean. You can also use baking soda (on its own) instead of a proprietary carpet cleaner – sprinkled on the carpet and then vacuum after about 15 minutes. Instead of buying silver polish that is probably toxic, you can soak silver in hot water and baking soda (and lemon juice if you wish) and then rinse it, dry it and polish it clean.
