Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

With this Fourth of July comes cookouts with good friends. This also means lots of cleaning, baking, and meal preparation. What miracle product can help with all of this? Arm & Hammer Baking Soda! I'm sure I'm not the only one that relies on Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for baking, but I bet you didn't know just how many ways you can use it around the house! I've decided to list some fun and little known ways that you can make the most of your Arm & Hammer Baking Soda.

This summer, try using it to:

  1. I'm going to try using it on my patio furniture like you suggest!

  2. We use baking soda for a lot here. I make all of my own cleaning products, and I really believe that nothing cleans better than baking soda and vinegar (or lemons). I also use it in my homemade deodorant. It is much more cost effective to use baking soda than anything else I have ever bought, and it also allows my kids to do a little more cleaning than I would allow with commercial cleaners. I sometimes add it to my cloth diaper wash to help brighten!

    1. Wow, I love that you use it on all these things! I'd love to know how you make your homemade deodorant. Thanks for sharing all of these ideas!

  3. I had only used this product for baking or keeping the fridge fresh.Nice post,thanks for all the great info.

    1. I'm glad you checked it out. I'm learning of even more ways to use it now!

  4. We use this for so many things around our house. I like the patio furniture idea!

  5. I printed this list of uses, thanks!

  6. I had no idea of all of these uses! I'll have to bookmark this.

  7. I love arm and hammer baking soda i heard its really good to clarify the hair
