Green Clean: Baking Soda


Did you know that the average household contains anywhere from 3-25 gallons of toxic materials? Most of which you can find in your household cleaning products. Children are especially susceptible to dangers from toxic materials because their immune systems aren’t fully developed. But don’t worry, you can make your clean up safer (and more cost effective) by using products you probably already have in your house!

Baking Soda:

  • Put an open box of baking soda in your fridge to absorb unwanted odors
  • To get rid of that coffee stain in your favorite mug or tea cup fill the cup with 1 part baking soda and 2 parts water; soak overnight; rub with a sponge and rinse.
  • No need to go out and buy one of those magic clean erasers, you can erase unwanted marks on your walls by applying a baking soda paste (equal parts baking soda and water) to white painted walls; let dry before brushing off with a clean cloth.
  • Fun Fact ~ Baking soda was used to clean the Statue of Liberty on its centennial, that’s a lot of baking soda!
  • There are many other uses for baking soda to clean your home that you can use as a substitute for those chemical filled cleaning products, find out more here.
