Baking soda has become a fan-favorite hack on social media.
It’s not only useful for keeping your groceries fresh or for baking a cake, but it can also be used to clean a variety of surfaces and textures.
TikTok cleaning expert @neat.caroline has shared nine awesome ways to incorporate baking soda into your home.
REPAIR DULL CLOTHES
His first piece of advice was to add half a cup to a load of laundry.
She claimed it would lighten and enhance the color of old clothes.
Caroline also said that a little baking soda will leave your sink shining like new.
All you have to do is sprinkle a generous amount around the surface, scrub it with a soapy sponge, then rinse it off with water.
His third tip is the most surprising: use it as a dry shampoo.
She said to mix a small amount of baking soda with a little cornstarch and rub it into your roots.
Caroline also uses the product to remove any guck from her bathtub.
She created a mixture of equal parts baking soda and equal parts dish soap and started scrubbing with a sponge.
Surprisingly, she said the powder can also be used as a kind of “magic eraser”.
Caroline dipped a damp sponge in a little baking soda and revealed that it removed scuff marks from her white walls.
A RELAXING APPROACH
The cleaning expert said adding a cup or two of baking soda to your bath will also create a kind of detoxifying soap.
If you have a moldy t-shirt that you can’t get the smell out of, Caroline says toss it in a Ziploc bag with baking soda.
After letting it sit for two days, shake it and the smell will disappear.
In addition to removing odors from your clothes, it can also remove odors from your hands.
Just rinse with water for about thirty seconds.
According to Caroline, baking soda can even help scent your dishwasher.
“Sprinkle in the bottom of your dishwasher, then run a normal load,” she said.
