Baking Soda Fixes Everything!

Or so I’ve heard. Last night, I was faced with a dilemma of what to do with poison ivy. A symptom of my son’s cleaning out a corner of our yard this past weekend.Funny enough, I had never come across having to deal with this in the past, so here I am googling what to do to help him with his bubbling skin and low and behold, here I come across a recipe for baking soda paste to put on the skin to help dry up the blisters. Here’s another list of wonderful things baking soda can do for you!

  1. I wash my hair with baking soda with a vinegar rinse. Does a good job.
  2. I cleaned both my stove and toaster oven with it. Again the grit does a great job at cleansing without the chemicals.
  3. It’s absorbs smells, so you can use it in as a deodorant (lightly for me since it has a bit of scouring quality), or in your refrigerator etc…
  4. Removes stains from clothing. Some baking soda and a little water and scrub and it’s all gone.
  5. Brushing your teeth has long known to work with baking soda. I use coconut oil and baking soda together, my mouth and teeth feel thoroughly clean.
  6. Great for scrubbing and deodorizing anything from laundry to cat box to sneakers.
  7. Helps with PH levels in your septic system to your body. Making both more alkaline.
  8. Good to extinguish fires.
  9. Good as an antacid. Makes sense since it neutralizes acid.
  10. And of course makes a great paste to dry up poison ivy.

A better question at this point would be? Is there anything baking soda can’t do?
