Baking soda also known as sodium bicarbonate is a common ingredient that is used in baking that can also be used as an all-purpose, natural cleaner. Baking soda is effective at removing stains and can also be used as a mild scouring tool for pots and pans, and sinks. Baking soda can be used as a natural house cleaner and deodorizer around the home including the fridge, on upholstery, smelly carpets, on vinyl and down drains. Baking soda is a natural cleaner and can be used to polish aluminum, chrome, jewelry, silver, stainless and tin. Baking soda is an excellent way to help deep clean your mattress, but it also works for anything that needs to be scrubbed. Baking soda can be used as a gentle abrasive that helps to scrub away tough stains, grime, and grease but it's gentle enough so that it won’t damage most materials or surfaces. You can use baking soda on its own to clean sinks, toilet bowls, countertops and cutting boards. Baking soda is also an excellent deodorizer and is the best way to clean a mattress, clean appliances, garbage cans, dresser drawers, closets, and so much more. The best part about using baking soda is that its inexpensive and safe for the environment.
Baking soda can also be used in the laundry as a natural cleaner that is safe for the environment. Laundry detergent is specially adapted to clean synthetic fabrics, with the advantage of not leaving behind soil residues even when used in hard water. The bad thing about many laundry detergents is that they are often derived from petrochemicals, and people sensitive to these compounds may find it difficult to tolerate laundry detergents or the fragrances the are scented with. Many detergents also contain phosphates which build up in streams and lakes and upset the natural balance in natural waterways. These buildups cause blooms of algae which deplete the dissolved oxygen that fish need to live. Some laundry detergents may even contain phenol which is hazardous. An excellent natural cleaning solution is to use soap. Soap is an effective natural cleaner for natural fabrics, leaving clothes softer than regular detergent can. For cotton and linen fabrics, soap can soften water. A cup of white vinegar is another natural cleaner that will help keep the colors bright. Baking soda can be used for laundry to help soften and leave the fresh laundry smelling. Silks and woos can be hand washed with some mild soap or a protein shampoo.
