Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Does everyone out there know all the things you can do with baking soda? I recently was offered the chance to try out Arm and Hammer Baking Soda through Smiley360.com and not only did they send me a box of baking soda, they also sent this really cool book with lots of ideas and tips for things you can do with baking soda. I decided to try out a few of the tips, most of which are very practical ideas.

The first thing I did was to add my baking soda to this shaker bottle. This makes it easy to store and to shake out when you want to use it!

I decided to try the tip for cleaning brushes.

Obviously I hadn’t cleaned my brush in awhile. The books says you can remove natural oil build-up and hair product residue by soaking combs and brushes in a solution of 1 tsp Arm & Hammer baking soda in a small basin of warm water.

And so I did!

Here is what my brush looked like afterwards. It definitely removed some of the build-up and I imagine if I did this more often it would be even better!

Next I tried the tip for removing smell from sneakers. All you do is shake the baking soda into the shoes in between wearings. This will absorb odor causing moisture while neutralizing existing odors.

My sneakers weren’t that smelly to begin with, and you can’t smell them through the picture, but the baking soda is in!

Finally, I used the baking soda to wash my face. I couldn’t get a picture of said face washing due to having baking soda on my hands. The guide told me to use a paste made of baking soda and water and it seemed to work! It did smell / taste a bit like baking.

Now, if baking soda could cure itching, I’d be all set.
