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!
- I wash my hair with baking soda with a vinegar rinse. Does a good job.
- I cleaned both my stove and toaster oven with it. Again the grit does a great job at cleansing without the chemicals.
- 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…
- Removes stains from clothing. Some baking soda and a little water and scrub and it’s all gone.
- 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.
- Great for scrubbing and deodorizing anything from laundry to cat box to sneakers.
- Helps with PH levels in your septic system to your body. Making both more alkaline.
- Good to extinguish fires.
- Good as an antacid. Makes sense since it neutralizes acid.
- 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?
