Baking Soda Usefulness
(Besides the Fridge Refresher)

1. Linen Refresher:  Stave off mustiness by placing an open box of baking soda alongside your towels and linens.  This is great especially if you are trying to impress guests or buyers...

2. Skin Smoother:  Mix with 3:1 water and create a simple low cost facial. Look fabulous!

3. Scribble Eraser:  Apply it to a damp cloth and use it to remove crayon, pencil and ink marks from your painted walls.  Presentation makes a HUGE impact!

4. Souring Agent:  Pour on a baked on pan and let sit for five minutes, then scrub off for easy removal.  A must for scrubbing ease.

5. Toothpaste:  It works! If you are out of toothpaste, mix it with water for a good clean set of teeth. Smile...

6. Drain Unclogged:  I love this one! Pour one cup of baking soda down the drain, then chase it down with one cup of vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes and then follow with a gallon of boiling water.  Whew...

7. Stain Remover:  Make a paste mixed with a little bit of water and use to scrub your coffee cup stains.

Just some handy tips to make home life a happy life!

Great list, I also use it in my dishwasher. Much better than all of the chemicals found in all of the cleaners.

Another fantastic way to use it...antacid and as a rinse if you cut your gums.  I love that stuff, it's like the McGuiver of base chemicals!  :^D
