Why use baking soda?
Throughout our cleaning videos, you will see us cleaning a lot of things with plain old baking soda. Baking soda is actually a type of salt (sodium bicarbonate, to be exact) that most people already have in their kitchen cabinets. And it's been used as a cleaner for a pretty long time. Baking soda can be used as a gentle abrasive to help you scrub away dirt and get rid of tough stains and grime on certain surfaces. And it's so much better for your health than those toxic scrubbing cleaners. It's just an excellent non-toxic cleaner to use as you're cleaning the house.
Baking soda cleans steel, chrome, glass, enamel, walls, ceramic, and even plastic. Not only is it a great cleaner, but it also freshens up the air by absorbing strong odors. And it doesn't just cover up the smell like most air fresheners do; it neutralizes the odor and removes the smell. That's why people put boxes of baking soda in the refrigerator.
