Many Uses for Baking Soda
I absolutely love baking soda. I could not live without it! I use it everyday for just about everything I do.
I add baking soda to my toothbrush on top of my Spry toothpaste or just use it alone to brush my teeth.
2. Drinking Water
I add baking soda to help alkalize my water. If your body is too acidic it can cause a lot of problems. A pH strip bought at your health food store can help you find out your pH. I just add a tiny pinch to an 8 ounce glass of water.
Baking soda is great for organic cleaning. I use it to scrub the soap scum off of sinks, tubs and showers. I rub a handful of baking soda right on the tub and then rub it around with a sponge. It takes the soap scum right off.
4. Washing Hair
I use a tablespoon of baking soda in a cup of water to wash my hair, that's right no shampoo! You can read more about this under organic haircare.
I throw a scoop of baking soda in my laundry to help clean. You can also use baking soda to make your own laundry detergent. You can find a recipe under organic cleaning.
I throw a cup of baking soda into every bath we take. It is detoxifying. I find that if I take a hot bath without baking soda I feel tired but when I take a bath with baking soda, I feel energized.
7. Baking Soda Deodorant
I put some grapeseed, coconut or olive oil in a jar and then mix in enough baking soda to make it solid. Then I just dip into it and rub in under my arms everyday for an awesome deodorant. I also add orange or lime essential oils for a great scent.
