Baking soda has so many uses, to say the least.
Can we define what baking soda is? Let’s try:
A white crystalline powder compound, NaHCO3, with a slightly alkaline taste, used in making effervescent salts and beverages, artificial mineral water, pharmaceuticals, used as a leavening agent, antacid, mouthwash, and fire extinguishers. Also called bicarbonate of soda. Also called sodium bicarbonate.
Baking soda can eliminate bad odors from the house; inside the bathroom, kitchen, living room and so on. Just pour some baking soda into a small container and place it in a strategic place so that it is not too obvious to everyone. Such as under the kitchen or bathroom sink, under a sofa and so on.
You may also create a cute container that you can stick on the wall or fridge using two-sided sticky tape. It should just look like cute wall art and only you know its function.
To eliminate sweat odor
It may be surprising to know that sweat does not have an odor. It is the bacteria on the surface of the skin that mixes with the sweat and cause the odor. Baking soda can effectively kill those bacteria and prevent odor from bath armpits and sweaty feet as well.
Just dust some baking soda under your armpits and you will not have to use deodorants. Or make your own deodorant with a mix of baking soda and coconut oil. Just use a teaspoon or less baking soda and a bit of coconut oil to form a paste. Rub under your armpits and you are good for more than 24 hours.
To get rid of smelly feet
Simply sprinkle one teaspoon of baking soda into each shoe and shake the shoes to spread it around. Put on your socks and get going.
Here is a smart way to eliminate odors from your fridge. The same principle can be applied to your bathroom and kitchen.
You will need:
Cut a hole in one section of the sponge without causing it to bore straight through, creating a sort of container to hold the baking soda without it showing. The sponge is filled with holes so it is as if the baking soda is somewhat exposed causing it to effectively absorb odors just the same.
Cut a hole in the sponge.
Fill the hole with baking soda.
Place in the fridge to eliminate odors.
