Naturally Clean – Baking Soda

Another great alternative to harsh cleaning product is baking soda, which is a natural deodorizer and gentle abrasive. I’ve mentioned it’s beauty uses before, but here are some of its best household uses:

  • The very well known – put an open box in the refrigerator or freezer to absorb odors
  • Rub into sponges and dish rags to freshen
  • Sprinkle on carpets before vacuuming
  • If you’re a cat owner, put a layer of baking soda underneath cat litter for maximum freshness
  • Add 1/2 cup to your next load of laundry - the baking soda is a natural fabric softener that also provides added freshness AND makes both white and colored clothing brighter! (a great alternative for people with sensitive skin)

  2. Annie,
    Great ideas, I have to try the laundry one. I have one more. Put it down your drains (sinks,etc) followed by white vinegar. Keeps them fresh!
