top secret graphicThere’s a secret agent that fights fires, doctors wounds, makes a mean biscuit, and is guaranteed to boost your dirt-fighting powers. Who is this strange and mysterious soldier?

Bicarbonate.  Sodium Bicarbonate.

His friends just call him baking soda.

Ways to put this cleaning-booster to the test:

-Pour a thin layer into the bottom of your trash can to remove odors.

-Sprinkle into your dishwasher and run once; then pour a cup of vinegar into the dishwasher and run again.  This will keep your washer running at its best.

-Add to your toilet, let sit for 30 minutes, clean as you normally would.  Admire the sparkle.

-Make a paste with 2 parts baking soda, 1 part water and scrub away stains in the caulk around your sink. This also works wonders in bathtubs.

-Dust over carpet stains and work into fibers with a damp cloth.  Allow to sit for a few hours then vacuum up the baking soda.

When you’re all done with your spring cleaning, toss your dirty rags in the washer and replace half your detergent with baking soda.  This will help remove grime and odor from your rags!
