This Secret Ingredient Will Make Your Life Easier

We’ve all used baking soda for years as an ingredient in recipes to make baked goods rise. But you might be amazed at all the ways a baking soda can simplify and brighten your life! Clabber Girl’s new Fresh Shaker Multi-Purpose Baking Soda, with its “Shake or Pour” top makes it even easier to use everyday baking soda to clean, deodorize and freshen!

  1. Clean Produce

If you simply don’t trust the produce you bring home from the store to be really clean enough to eat, a washing with baking soda can remove wax, chemicals and put your mind at ease. Rinse your fruits and veggies, coat them with baking soda, give them a scrub, then rinse them again for the freshest produce you can serve!

  1. Remove Coffee Stains

Wherever those nasty coffee stains build up–on your counter, under the coffee maker or in your sink–you can quickly and easily remove them with baking soda. Sprinkle liberally on the surface, scrub with a sponge or paper towel and rinse. The job is done, and you can take the time you saved to enjoy a cup of your favorite Rex Coffee!

  1. Freshen the Litter Box

If you have cats, you know how hard it is to eliminate those litter box odors. No matter what you do, it seems there’s always a hint of kitty smell hanging around the house. The solution is already there in your kitchen cabinet. Baking soda absorbs odors naturally, so sprinkle some on top of the litter to neutralize those smells.

  1. Scour Pans

Love your baking pans, but hate that nasty brown coating that they’ve developed? Don’t waste your dough on new ones! Simply pour a liberal amount of baking soda onto the pan, add water to form a paste, scrub and rinse. Your pans will look brand new, and you can get back to baking!

  1. Deodorize

“Whew! What’s that smell?” If you’ve uttered those words when your teenager takes off his tennis shoes or your husband opens his gym bag, there’s an easy, safe and natural way to deodorize all things stinky. Just shake some baking soda inside the smelly bag or shoes and let its odor-absorbing power do the work!

  1. Freshen Laundry

This tip for fresher laundry is so easy, you’ll be surprised you hadn’t thought of it! Simply sprinkle baking soda into the washing machine full of dirty clothes and wash as usual. Baking soda as a laundry additive is a great money saver. It makes your whites whiter and your colors brighter, plus it softens the water, so you can use less detergent and less bleach!

  1. Deodorize the Refrigerator

Probably the best-known use for baking soda, besides baking, is as a deodorizer for the fridge. No matter how well you package food for storage, there will be smells in the refrigerator. Clabber Girl’s “Shake or Pour” canister is a convenient way to absorb fridge odors naturally.

  1. Clean Red Stains from Plastic Containers

Sauces with tomatoes often leave a red stain on plastic containers that can be impossible to remove. Use Clabber Girl’s “Shake or Pour” canister to gently shake baking soda onto a stained container. Add a small amount of water, just enough to form a paste. Scrub the paste all over the container to remove red staining.

  1. Clean Sink and Faucets

Shake some Clabber Girl Baking Soda into your sink and on and around your faucets to get rid of dried-on gunk and water spots as a part of your regular kitchen clean-up. Wiping down counter tops and sinks, then rinsing well with water, is an easy and frugal way to remove all sorts of food stains and brighten your kitchen, too.

  1. Make Dog Toothpaste

If baking soda is a great way to freshen and brighten your teeth, it makes sense that it’s a great way to clean Fido’s teeth as well. To make a palatable paste for your pets, mix two tablespoons of baking soda, a teaspoon of beef bouillon, one-quarter teaspoon of water, a pinch of salt, and one of parsley. Use it regularly to brush your doggie’s teeth, and his breath will be fresher, too!

Give these tips a try and let us know how they work out for you. And we’d love to hear from you about the new Clabber Girl Fresh Shaker Multi-Purpose Baking Soda, with the “Shake or Pour” top, and about your favorite ways to use baking soda for cleaning, deodorizing and freshening your home, car, gym locker or wherever!
