INTRODUCTION

The following information is a presentation of evidence, combined with my opinions, based on factual details available in the public domain. My opinions are based on the evidence. I do not claim to present an overarching or objective truth, and I encourage all readers to engage in their own research by following the links available in this document. It is up to each individual to research for themselves in order to determine whether or not your conclusions align with my assessment and analysis of the evidence. Consider this document a starting point to a larger body of research and a more thorough investigation. Use your own discernment and please do fact-check and send me corrections.

I don’t trust Del Bigtree because I believe he (and others) have co-opted the legitimate grassroots “anti-vaccine” movement, and turned it into a more palatable and acceptable “Safer Vaccine Movement” or the “Vaccine Risk Awareness Movement”, as part of an elaborate controlled opposition campaign. This has been obvious to many of us for a long time, but for people who may be new to these concepts, I will lay out some of the basics.

This campaign is designed to take control of the legitimate opposition voice, which understands that all vaccines are dangerous, create new artificial boundaries as to what is and isn’t an acceptable level of resistance and dissent in the public discourse about vaccines, and silence and marginalize the informed and unjected – the real dissidents and the real health and freedom movement – people who understand that there’s no such thing as a safe vaccine.

This campaign aims for and achieves several goals and objectives. Among them, it redraws the lines around what is considered “acceptable” debate about vaccines by labeling folks like Del and his buddy RFK Jr. as “anti-vax extremists” who are spreading “dangerous information,” when in fact they are soft-serve activists who aren’t extreme at all – except in the sense that they think vaccines are generally safe and effective, which is insane. The psy-war on reality turns night into day and day into night which results in normal, healthy, intelligent people pushed out of the conversation altogether and relabels people like Del, who are half insane pro-vaxxers as the “extremists.” But the real extremists are the mainstream science and media lovers who are 100% rabidly pro-vaccine, including the so-called new “experimental” COVID19 vaccine.

Del and his cohorts are just as insane as these folks, with the exception that they want the vaccines to be “safer”. The opposite of the word ‘safe,’ is ‘dangerous.’ So by making something “safer,” you are, by definition, really only making it “less dangerous.”

What the majority of folks in the COVID truther scene don’t understand is the pervasive nature of this controlled opposition campaign, its strategies and tactics, and ultimate goals.

The truthers have been set up to fall into these traps, thanks to wolves in sheep’s clothing like Del Bigtree. The ultimate goal of this insidious campaign is very simple – it is designed to get the skeptics and truther community to DEMAND

MORE GOVERNMENT.

This is accomplished via a ‘slow reveal’ strategy, employed by the mainstream and alternative media, who are one in the same and work for the same interests and agendas under a cover of manufactured conflict. The slow reveal happens over a course of months and years. Slowly, more and more information is ‘brought to light’ that the COVID vaccines are dangerous. This is accompanied by soap opera storylines which focus on people like Dr. Fauci or Bill Gates, and evil corporations like Pfizer and Moderna, in order to get the truther masses hooked and addicted to the fear-laced drama. Like all addicts, once they are hooked, they keep coming back to engage with this surface level drama and miss the big picture.

So – here is the big picture. It is VERY SIMPLE TO UNDERSTAND.

While this paper may focus on vaccines, the bigger picture is not about vaccines, and has never been about vaccines. This is about CONTROL. Control of the population and every aspect of our physical and spiritual lives, which is achieved by giving the GOVERNMENT and the DEMONS more control over EVERYTHING. The vaccine is only one of the vectors which this operation uses to spring into motion a series of objectives that ultimately lead to the new world government globalist technocratic slave system.

Agents like Del Bigtree and RFK Jr. play an important role in this operation. One might say they are central to its success. They gain the trust of the skeptics who gradually hand over what little critical thinking skills they have to these deceivers, without realizing that they have been specifically cast in these roles as benevolent heroes, to fight the evil Fauci/Gates/Pfizer characters. This is written as part of the screenplay and is obvious for those who have moved past the first layers of deception.

Sadly, most truthers are completely oblivious to this, which is why I have to keep writing these damn papers. This is known as classic PROBLEM, REACTION, SOLUTION.

The entire scam relies on these heroes to highlight the “dangerous vaccine problem” via the long and drawn out “slow reveal campaign” – wait for the public’s reaction and then present the solution. It goes something like this:

Problem: Fauci/Gates/Biden/Pharma/Whoever are corrupt and evil!

Pfizer/Moderna engaged in data manipulation and lies! The COVID vaccines are dangerous!

Reaction: “OMG! THE VACCINES ARE DANGEROUS! THEY’RE TRYING TO KILL US! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE SO THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!

WHERE ARE OUR HEROES!??”

Solution: We must make the vaccines safer! These companies must be held accountable. We must have better safety regulations and oversight. We need a task force to investigate the corruption and root out the wrongdoing. Those responsible must be held to account and we need a new regulatory body to play the role of watchdog over these evil Big Pharma companies!

WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT!!

There is an even more insidious goal underneath all of this, which lies in the spiritual realm. The goal is to lead the truthers astray and towards the false light, by exposing the dark and sinister plan of the mainstream’s agenda. That is by design and that is why we see the Fauci/Gates/Pfizer clan exposed so thoroughly and more people “waking up” to the evil agenda. They’re not really waking up, though. The darkness is meant to be exposed, in order to lead them to the false light. It’s a trick and an easy one to understand if you pay attention. This is an important subject that needs to be explored further but is outside the scope of this paper. I only wanted to mention it briefly because it’s relevant.

As we all know by now, none of the so-called leaders of this fake resistance movement are interested in completely tearing down this evil, corrupt system or eliminating toxicity from our lives. All they care about is creating the illusion that the vaccines can be made SAFER. This is an obvious LIE that anyone can understand, if they’ve done their homework. The reason it’s a lie is because there is no such thing as a safe vaccine. If this sounds extreme to you, it’s because you have not yet started your journey of unlearning.

So, in order to drive this point home, it’s time to expose everyone’s favorite “safe vaccine” advocate, Del Bigtree.

Before we start, let me just say that I knew who Del Bigtree was prior to launch of the fake COVID19 pandemic, via his propaganda film VaXXed, but I noticed immediately how he had been pushed into the spotlight to control the opposition narrative early on in the pandemic which was an immediate red flag. Indeed, within those first few weeks, Del quickly became the “go to” source of information for those who had a hunch something fishy was going on, and thus established himself as a trustworthy and credible voice for the gullible truther/skeptic crowd.

I immediately smelled a rat, not because of anything he said or did at the time, but simply because the slick production behind his Highwire show was an obvious clue for me. He was GIVEN to me, which made him suspect from the beginning.

I then began doing my own research on him and exposing him online in different research groups and channels. That is when I found the work of Greg Wyatt. Greg has the best research on the internet and has been exposing the Del Bigtree crime syndicate for years.

With the above in mind, please use this paper as a guide or a starting point only. I will only scratch the surface and give you the most important information, but if you continue down the rabbit hole, you will find a lot more and I highly recommend Greg Wyatt’s research for all the information you need. I also recommend doing your own research, as well. Don’t just take my word for it or Greg’s word for it, do your due diligence and if you find errors in this paper, please send them to me. I consider Greg a man of integrity who is honest and as trustworthy as they come – a rarity in the so-called “truther” scene. Greg has also been through HELL to bring this information to us, so respect the research and do your homework. Start with this paper and then the information on Greg’s website.

Finally, I want to thank Greg for his research which has been a valuable companion to my own. While I found a lot about Del on my own, Greg deserves most of the credit because he has been doing this a lot longer than I have. I am grateful for his tireless and exhaustive efforts at exposing these criminals. He has left me some very valuable breadcrumbs that I’ve used to find more information.

PART 1

THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE BIG TREE

So first, let’s start with Del’s background and family history. The following italicized sections were written by Greg Wyatt with additional sources added by me. I followed Greg’s leads, fact-checked and did my own, additional research.

Del has a family history of being a showman and as such, there is the mask he wears in public and the products of his actions in real life. There seems to be a disconnect between what this actor portrays himself to be and the truth.

A FAMILY OF ACTORS

Del Matthew Bigtree, also known as Delores Jackson, was born in April 1970 to Jack Groverland and Norma Bigtree. He grew up in Boulder, Colorado.

A FAMILY OF ACTORS

Del’s Mother, Norma Groverland

Del’s Mother, Norma Groverland

Norma was born on January 14, 1943 to Norman and Mary Bigtree in Syracuse, NY. Norman Bigtree (05/10/11 – 03/26/71) was a full-blood Iroquois Indian born on the Onondaga Reservation. Norman was a machinist for the Chrysler Corporation until his death in 1971. Norma was the eldest of three daughters, followed by Jeanne Bigtree (now Bagi) and the youngest Sandra Bigtree… When

Sandra was just one, the three sisters started performing together as the Big Tree Sisters

…Norma met Jack Groverland in the early 1960’s and they appeared in off-Broadway productions together in New York City. Norma starred in Curley McDimple (a Shirley Temple spoof) from November 22, 1967 to January 15, 1970. She performed with Barry Manilow, Bernadtte Peters, etc, when she met Jack Groverland.

When “Tent Revival” preaching became popular in the 1960’s, Norma and Jack suddenly found a more lucrative career promoting God and ditched the theater for the tent. It’s not clear why Del does not have his father’s last name.

Well, Del’s father’s last name isn’t actually Groverland, but we’ll come back to that later.

So, with just a cursory check of Del’s family, we’ve learned two important things. First, we’ve learned that Del’s family has been involved in showmanship and acting. This is important for obvious reasons. It suggests that Del too is nothing but an actor. We’ll explore this later.

From Norma’s Bio, on her own website, she says that she is the daughter of a

Mohawk Native American Father (Norman Bigtree) and a Russian Immigrant

Mother (Mary Wolniak). The Mohawk are an Iroquoian-speaking North

American Indian tribe and the easternmost tribe of the Iroquois

(Haudenosaunee) Confederacy, so this is consistent with Greg’s findings.

Other sources confirm that Norman was indeed a “full-blood Iroquois Indian born on the Onondaga Reservation.” Norman’s race is listed as “Indian” (same for his father, Mitchell) here. But the U.S. Census data from 1940 lists Norman’s race as “White,” and his Ethnicity as “American.”

Find a Grave says that Norman was born in Hogansburg, Franklin County, New York which is 200 miles away from the Onondaga Reservation. Ancestry says the same thing. Find a Grave says he was buried in Onondaga County, but something seems off here.

Norman’s father is Mitchell Bigtree, born in 1876.

Dell Bigtree Family Tree

Mitchell’s father is Philip Bigtree and his father is George Bigtree. That’s as far back as records go and they do all seem like legitimate Native Americans to me.

Here is a photo of Philip Bigtree.

Dell Bigtree Father Philip

Norman Bigtree is listed in the Geneology sites as one of nine children of Mitchell Bigtree and Margaret Ellen Doyle. Mitchell and Margaret Ellen Doyle were married in Manchester, England on April 6, 1896. Norman was born 15 years later (allegedly on the Onondaga Reservation).

Also, I’ve found that some sources list him as Norman Bigtree (one word), while others list him as Norman Big Tree (two words).

According to the book Notes on the Iroquois by Henry R. Schoolcraft, it is confirmed that the Big Tree family (two words) was indeed from Onondaga, but the US Census data from 1888-1893 lists the Bigtree family (one word) in St.

Regis, not Onondaga (Norman was born in 1911).

Norman’s Great Grandmother on his mother’s side is Margaret Downie, born in England and died in Germany. So it’s clear that Norman can’t be full-blooded Iroquois Indian. The Indian is on his father’s side only.

It should also be noted that Doyle (Norman’s mother, Mitchell’s wife) is a peerage name, including at least 5 Baronets. Just one example is General Sir John Doyle, 1st Baronet, who was born between 1750 and 1756.1 He was the son of Charles Doyle and Elizabeth Milley

      General Sir John Doyle

So clearly there’s no Native American roots from Norman’s mother’s side.

It does seem a little odd that a Native American would travel to England and get married there and then come back, in the 1800s, but it’s certainly possible and not necessarily a red flag. Did he meet Margaret in New York and they went back to her homeland for the wedding? Or was he in England for other reasons and then met her there?

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge.

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Image courtesy of HGTV

We’ve already mentioned combining vinegar, and baking soda does wonders for unclogging your drains. This combination is quite useful for getting rid of stubborn stains on your carpets. Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Image courtesy of Soap Deli News Blog

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Image courtesy of The Krazy Koupon Lady

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Baking soda is something every household has in their cupboard or pantry. The baking soda container is probably collecting dust and not being properly and fully used to its vast potential.

One of the common ways to use it is in baking and cleaning – but trust us when we say that they are just the beginning of your endless possibilities.

With these ideas, you’ll feel like you’re getting your money’s worth by not buying other products you could replace with this strong, white, and powdery chemical. Keep on scrolling for more information that could one day save the day!

Remove Grease Stains

The annoying thing about cooking, doing some mechanical work, or repairing household appliances is the inevitable fact that all of these activities include grease, oil, and other substances that are difficult to remove. You can damage your clothes permanently. However, there is an immediate solution, and you might find it in your pantry at home!Image Courtesy of Apartment Therapy

All you need to do to save your favorite piece of clothing or material is to heavily sprinkle baking soda, let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes and then scrub it with a damp sponge or cloth. It might not work the first time, so try it a few times until you succeed!Joe Jonas Files for Divorce From Sophie Turner×

No More Bad Fridge Scent

There is nothing more embarrassing than opening up your fridge in front of your date, and it reeks! Who knows of what. All that food accumulating during the week, leftovers, a little rotten tomato, bananas from the market, meal prepped eggs…It’s a disaster!

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If you have a baking soda container, you can immediately solve your issue. Just poke a small hole, or make an opening in your soda carton and leave it in the fridge. The baking soda neutralizes odors and leaves your fridge feeling clean and fresh!

Say Goodbye to Lefrover Stains

One of the most annoying things about delicious Thanksgiving or Christmas leftovers has to be food or liquid stains that stay on the plastic Tupperware or glass containers. It looks messy, and for some reason, you avoid using them again because they don’t look clean or sanitary.Image Courtesy of Blue Apron’s Blog

If you soak your stained leftover containers in baking soda mixed with water for around half an hour and then use a sponge or moist cloth to clean the surface, you’ll be surprised as to how easy it comes off! This is a hack and a half, especially during the holiday season.

Splinter Remover

It was so easy getting a splinter in your foot, hand, or fingers when we were children. Curiosity indeed kills the cat. However, it also causes injuries to people too. Whether working with wood is in your job description or you just have a creative hobby, this hack will be helpful.

Baking soda can help remove splinters and ease swelling under the skin. If a splinter is stuck underneath your skin, you can mix up water and baking soda, thus making a paste, and apply it to the swollen area to draw the splinter out. Cover it with a bandaid, leave it until the next day, and it will naturally come out.

Grill Cleaner

Cookouts with your squad are always fun. They’re perfect for creating memories, having fun, eating delicious grilled goodies, and playing board games. Sometimes even drinking games. But, no underage drinking folks! However, after an exciting grilling weekend, someone has to clean the grill.

Image courtesy of AskCulinary/Reddit

With baking soda, grill grimes are a thing of the past! The only thing you should do to clean the grill properly is let it cool down, use baking soda, gently rub it, and remove the grit with a brush. Grilling and cleaning have never been so easy!

Perfect Patio

There is nothing better than spending your summer nights on your patio, hanging out with your friends and family, talking about funny memories, playing games, and scaring each other off with ghost stories. The only thing that can spoil this experience is filthy patio furniture you can’t clean.

If you use a baking soda and water mixture, you could easily wipe away the dirt, grease, and residue that has accumulated over time. Moreover, when or if you store your patio furniture inside during the winter months, you can place a bag of baking soda in the storage to keep the furniture fresh.

Cankers Be Gone!

Mouth ulcers can be such a bore! They hurt, swell, and eating food seems like an impossible task while suffering from this annoying condition. They usually last for a few days and sometimes up to a week. There is a home remedy, including baking soda, that can help you!

Image courtesy of Jimmy Tudeschi/Shutterstock

To get rid of it, all you need to do is rub baking soda directly on the canker and then rinse with a mixture of baking soda and water. Your pain and swelling should be relieved soon after. Sometimes, you don’t have to pay a lot of money at the pharmacy, but rather peep into your cupboards in search of baking soda!

Cleaning Silverware

Silverware can sometimes get extremely stained due to its constant usage, cleaning, washing, putting in the dishwasher, etc. The steel wears off, loses its initial shine, and seems shabby. However, we have another baking soda hack for your household!

Image courtesy of lemonslavenderandlaundry.com

All you need to do is pour boiling water into an aluminum pan and add a teaspoon or two of baking soda. After making the mixture, you should simply add your silverware to it and let it sit for a while. Then extract them from the pan, cool them, and dry them. Voila!

Removing Coffee Stains

Do you know what is one of the most annoying things about drinking coffee? Certainly, coffee stains tint the cup permanently. Imagine running a cafe or inviting guests over for a cup of the hot beverage, just to find your mugs and cups all stained and damaged. How frustrating!

Image courtesy of picklepower54/Reddit

There is, of course, an easy and straightforward solution. Listen up! Sprinkle baking soda into the cups and let it sit for approximately a few minutes. Then, take a piece of cloth or sponge, dip it into cold water, and scrub the inside of a stained cup. You can thank us later!

Relieve Bug Bites

Mosquito bites are the worst! Any bug bites are extremely irritating, itchy, and in the end, annoying as heck! Sometimes, expensive cream and itch relievers are not too effective, and at times, can seem more costly than you can afford at the moment.

Image courtesy of lifeisasunsetblog.ca

There is a very simple and affordable solution! What you could try next time a nasty bug bites you and leaves a mark is to create a paste from baking soda and water and apply it directly on the place where you’ve been bitten. Baking soda draws out fluids and can help relieve the itchiness.

Homemade Teeth Whitener

Whitening your teeth has become somewhat of a trend, and it’s no wonder as to why! White teeth look beautiful, healthy and showcase a person who takes good care of themselves. A person that smokes, drinks a lot of black coffee, or simply wants to take better care of their teeth with love this hack!

Image courtesy of naturallyhandcrafted.org

Whitening the teeth can be somewhat expensive. Lucky for you, baking soda can help here as well! This is one of the most economical ways of scrubbing plaque build-up and surface stains on teeth. Simply brush your teeth with baking soda after brushing your teeth with toothpaste.

Pest Control

We already talked about bugs when we mentioned how to get rid of bug bites. Sometimes, bugs don’t bite, but they infest your home like ants, cockroaches, beetles, ladybugs, moths, etc. The list is endless. However, baking soda saves the day once more!

Image courtesy of deleted user/Reddit

In case some of the annoying bugs have infested your home, you don’t need to call pest control, believe it or not! You should simply search for a package of baking soda in your kitchen or pantry and sprinkle it in all the holes you can find alongside walls and floors around your house!

Razor Burn Relief

Shaving is a regular self-care task, both for men and women. It takes time, and one must be careful not to cut themselves. Frequently, if your shaving cream or foam is not soft enough and your razor is too dull, you could experience something called razor burn.

Image courtesy of oneessentialcommunity.com

If your experiencing severe irritations, itching, and redness, what you could do is make a mixture of water and baking soda, dab a cotton ball in it, and carefully apply it to the irritated area to relieve the uneasiness. Baking soda to the rescue, once more!

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

Image courtesy of Budsies

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Image courtesy of Judirek/Reddit

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge. Use a damp sponge and baking soda to remove wall scuffs in a heartbeat. Cleaning kids’ messes have never been easier!

Make Book Odor a Thing of the Past

There is something uniquely special about old, vintage books. They are higher quality, almost ethereal, and resemble something you might see in fantasy movies. They could transform the whole feel you have about the book’s content. What about the odor that sometimes follows those older books?

Image courtesy of harleymeenen/Reddit

Since they tend to have an aged smell, we suggest you simply sprinkle baking soda in between the pages to refresh them. This hack is super easy, inexpensive, quick, and effective! It should leave your vintage books sanitized and clean!

Unclog It!

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

The downside of having real flowers is they wilt quickly. However, don’t give up just yet. Of course, we have another hack for you! If you want your flower bouquets to last longer, listen up! Sprinkle a bit of baking soda into the water inside your vase. You’ll notice your flowers lasting longer than usual. If you want extra endurance, add an ice cube. You’re welcome!

Wash Fruits and Veggies

It’s no secret that vendors and supermarkets spray their fruits and vegetables with various chemicals to keep them looking ripe, fresh, and delicious for longer. Now, because we know this, we must make sure to wash it off and rinse properly.

Image courtesy of TheCorgi/Shutterstock

Baking soda is one of the most effective ways to make sure your vegged are clean and ready for use. What you should do is simply soak your fruits and vegetables in water, add a spoonful of baking soda, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it, and enjoy!

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

One weekend, you could try out this nifty hack we’ve found for you and your (possibly) smelly trash can. Open the lid if there is one, and pour in the amount of soda you think will do the job. Close it or cover the opening and let it sit for a few minutes. Your trash can will be as good as new!

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Image courtesy of HGTV

We’ve already mentioned combining vinegar, and baking soda does wonders for unclogging your drains. This combination is quite useful for getting rid of stubborn stains on your carpets. Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Image courtesy of Soap Deli News Blog

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Image courtesy of craftsyhacks.com

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections.

Dry Shampoo Hack

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Image courtesy of The Krazy Koupon Lady

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Say Goodbye to Lefrover Stains

Splinter Remover

It was so easy getting a splinter in your foot, hand, or fingers when we were children. Curiosity indeed kills the cat. However, it also causes injuries to people too. Whether working with wood is in your job description or you just have a creative hobby, this hack will be helpful.

Baking soda can help remove splinters and ease swelling under the skin.

If you use a baking soda and water mixture, you could easily wipe away the dirt, grease, and residue that has accumulated over time. Moreover, when or if you store your patio furniture inside during the winter months, you can place a bag of baking soda in the storage to keep the furniture fresh.

Cankers Be Gone!

Mouth ulcers can be such a bore! They hurt, swell, and eating food seems like an impossible task while suffering from this annoying condition. They usually last for a few days and sometimes up to a week. There is a home remedy, including baking soda, that can help you!

Relieve Bug Bites

Mosquito bites are the worst! Any bug bites are extremely irritating, itchy, and in the end, annoying as heck! Sometimes, expensive cream and itch relievers are not too effective, and at times, can seem more costly than you can afford at the moment.

There is a very simple and affordable solution! What you could try next time a nasty bug bites you and leaves a mark is to create a paste from baking soda and water and apply it directly on the place where you’ve been bitten. Baking soda draws out fluids and can help relieve the itchiness.

Homemade Teeth Whitener

Whitening your teeth has become somewhat of a trend, and it’s no wonder as to why! White teeth look beautiful, healthy and showcase a person who takes good care of themselves.

Whitening the teeth can be somewhat expensive. Lucky for you, baking soda can help here as well! This is one of the most economical ways of scrubbing plaque build-up and surface stains on teeth. Simply brush your teeth with baking soda after brushing your teeth with toothpaste.

Pest Control

We already talked about bugs when we mentioned how to get rid of bug bites. Sometimes, bugs don’t bite, but they infest your home like ants, cockroaches, beetles, ladybugs, moths, etc. The list is endless. However, baking soda saves the day once more!

Image courtesy of deleted user/Reddit

In case some of the annoying bugs have infested your home, you don’t need to call pest control, believe it or not! You should simply search for a package of baking soda in your kitchen or pantry and sprinkle it in all the holes you can find alongside walls and floors around your house!

Razor Burn Relief

Shaving is a regular self-care task, both for men and women. It takes time, and one must be careful not to cut themselves. Frequently, if your shaving cream or foam is not soft enough and your razor is too dull, you could experience something called razor burn.

If your experiencing severe irritations, itching, and redness, what you could do is make a mixture of water and baking soda, dab a cotton ball in it, and carefully apply it to the irritated area to relieve the uneasiness. Baking soda to the rescue, once more!

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

Image courtesy of Budsies

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge. Use a damp sponge and baking soda to remove wall scuffs in a heartbeat. Cleaning kids’ messes have never been easier!

Make Book Odor a Thing of the Past

There is something uniquely special about old, vintage books. They are higher quality, almost ethereal, and resemble something you might see in fantasy movies. They could transform the whole feel you have about the book’s content. What about the odor that sometimes follows those older books?

Image courtesy of harleymeenen/Reddit

Since they tend to have an aged smell, we suggest you simply sprinkle baking soda in between the pages to refresh them. This hack is super easy, inexpensive, quick, and effective! It should leave your vintage books sanitized and clean!

Unclog It!

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

The downside of having real flowers is they wilt quickly. However, don’t give up just yet. Of course, we have another hack for you! If you want your flower bouquets to last longer, listen up! Sprinkle a bit of baking soda into the water inside your vase. You’ll notice your flowers lasting longer than usual. If you want extra endurance, add an ice cube. You’re welcome!

Wash Fruits and Veggies

It’s no secret that vendors and supermarkets spray their fruits and vegetables with various chemicals to keep them looking ripe, fresh, and delicious for longer. Now, because we know this, we must make sure to wash it off and rinse properly.

Baking soda is one of the most effective ways to make sure your vegged are clean and ready for use. What you should do is simply soak your fruits and vegetables in water, add a spoonful of baking soda, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it, and enjoy!

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

One weekend, you could try out this nifty hack we’ve found for you and your (possibly) smelly trash can. Open the lid if there is one, and pour in the amount of soda you think will do the job. Close it or cover the opening and let it sit for a few minutes. Your trash can will be as good as new!

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Image courtesy of HGTV

We’ve already mentioned combining vinegar, and baking soda does wonders for unclogging your drains. This combination is quite useful for getting rid of stubborn stains on your carpets. Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Image courtesy of Soap Deli News Blog

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Image courtesy of craftsyhacks.com

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge.

Unclog It!

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

One weekend, you could try out this nifty hack we’ve found for you and your (possibly) smelly trash can. Open the lid if there is one, and pour in the amount of soda you think will do the job. Close it or cover the opening and let it sit for a few minutes. Your trash can will be as good as new!

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Image courtesy of craftsyhacks.com

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Image courtesy of Delia Cabrillas/Pinterest

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Image courtesy of healthextremist.com

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Image courtesy of The Krazy Koupon Lady

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Razor Burn Relief

If your experiencing severe irritations, itching, and redness, what you could do is make a mixture of water and baking soda, dab a cotton ball in it, and carefully apply it to the irritated area to relieve the uneasiness. Baking soda to the rescue, once more!

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge.

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic.

Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections.

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Greg found a newspaper article that says that Norma Bigtree was the granddaughter of a Mohawk chief whose visage adorns the nickel coin. (Daily News, New York, New York, Friday May 13, 1966.) I was able to find another source for this, here. But I haven’t found any evidence that Mitchell was a Mohawk Chief.

So let’s recap, so that we don’t get too confused. Del’s mother Norma says that her father (Norman) is a Mohawk Native American. Multiple sources say he was born on the Onondaga Reservation, but his records show that he wasn’t born there. Furthermore, he is listed as “white” in the U.S. Census (presumably because his mother is a white European) and his parents (Mitchell and Margaret Ellen Doyle) were married in England. Several newspaper articles say that Norma is the granddaughter of a Mohawk Indian Chief whose likeness was used on the nickel coin, presumably referring to Mitchell Bigtree. But there’s no evidence that Mitchell was a Chief and we know he wasn’t used for the nickel.

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Baking soda is something every household has in their cupboard or pantry. The baking soda container is probably collecting dust and not being properly and fully used to its vast potential.

If you have a baking soda container, you can immediately solve your issue. Just poke a small hole, or make an opening in your soda carton and leave it in the fridge. The baking soda neutralizes odors and leaves your fridge feeling clean and fresh!

Say Goodbye to Lefrover Stains

If you soak your stained leftover containers in baking soda mixed with water for around half an hour and then use a sponge or moist cloth to clean the surface, you’ll be surprised as to how easy it comes off! This is a hack and a half, especially during the holiday season.

Splinter Remover

It was so easy getting a splinter in your foot, hand, or fingers when we were children. Curiosity indeed kills the cat. However, it also causes injuries to people too. Whether working with wood is in your job description or you just have a creative hobby, this hack will be helpful.

Baking soda can help remove splinters and ease swelling under the skin. If a splinter is stuck underneath your skin, you can mix up water and baking soda, thus making a paste, and apply it to the swollen area to draw the splinter out. Cover it with a bandaid, leave it until the next day, and it will naturally come out.

Grill Cleaner

Cookouts with your squad are always fun. They’re perfect for creating memories, having fun, eating delicious grilled goodies, and playing board games. Sometimes even drinking games. But, no underage drinking folks! However, after an exciting grilling weekend, someone has to clean the grill.

With baking soda, grill grimes are a thing of the past! The only thing you should do to clean the grill properly is let it cool down, use baking soda, gently rub it, and remove the grit with a brush. Grilling and cleaning have never been so easy!

Perfect Patio

There is nothing better than spending your summer nights on your patio, hanging out with your friends and family, talking about funny memories, playing games, and scaring each other off with ghost stories. The only thing that can spoil this experience is filthy patio furniture you can’t clean.

If you use a baking soda and water mixture, you could easily wipe away the dirt, grease, and residue that has accumulated over time. Moreover, when or if you store your patio furniture inside during the winter months, you can place a bag of baking soda in the storage to keep the furniture fresh.

Cankers Be Gone!

Mouth ulcers can be such a bore! They hurt, swell, and eating food seems like an impossible task while suffering from this annoying condition. They usually last for a few days and sometimes up to a week. There is a home remedy, including baking soda, that can help you!

Image courtesy of Jimmy Tudeschi/Shutterstock

To get rid of it, all you need to do is rub baking soda directly on the canker and then rinse with a mixture of baking soda and water. Your pain and swelling should be relieved soon after. Sometimes, you don’t have to pay a lot of money at the pharmacy, but rather peep into your cupboards in search of baking soda!

Cleaning Silverware

Silverware can sometimes get extremely stained due to its constant usage, cleaning, washing, putting in the dishwasher, etc. The steel wears off, loses its initial shine, and seems shabby. However, we have another baking soda hack for your household!

Image courtesy of lemonslavenderandlaundry.com

All you need to do is pour boiling water into an aluminum pan and add a teaspoon or two of baking soda. After making the mixture, you should simply add your silverware to it and let it sit for a while. Then extract them from the pan, cool them, and dry them. Voila!

Removing Coffee Stains

Do you know what is one of the most annoying things about drinking coffee? Certainly, coffee stains tint the cup permanently. Imagine running a cafe or inviting guests over for a cup of the hot beverage, just to find your mugs and cups all stained and damaged. How frustrating!

Image courtesy of picklepower54/Reddit

There is, of course, an easy and straightforward solution. Listen up! Sprinkle baking soda into the cups and let it sit for approximately a few minutes. Then, take a piece of cloth or sponge, dip it into cold water, and scrub the inside of a stained cup. You can thank us later!

Relieve Bug Bites

Mosquito bites are the worst! Any bug bites are extremely irritating, itchy, and in the end, annoying as heck! Sometimes, expensive cream and itch relievers are not too effective, and at times, can seem more costly than you can afford at the moment.

Image courtesy of lifeisasunsetblog.ca

There is a very simple and affordable solution! What you could try next time a nasty bug bites you and leaves a mark is to create a paste from baking soda and water and apply it directly on the place where you’ve been bitten. Baking soda draws out fluids and can help relieve the itchiness.

Homemade Teeth Whitener

Whitening your teeth has become somewhat of a trend, and it’s no wonder as to why! White teeth look beautiful, healthy and showcase a person who takes good care of themselves. A person that smokes, drinks a lot of black coffee, or simply wants to take better care of their teeth with love this hack!

Image courtesy of naturallyhandcrafted.org

Whitening the teeth can be somewhat expensive. Lucky for you, baking soda can help here as well! This is one of the most economical ways of scrubbing plaque build-up and surface stains on teeth. Simply brush your teeth with baking soda after brushing your teeth with toothpaste.

Pest Control

We already talked about bugs when we mentioned how to get rid of bug bites. Sometimes, bugs don’t bite, but they infest your home like ants, cockroaches, beetles, ladybugs, moths, etc. The list is endless. However, baking soda saves the day once more!

Image courtesy of deleted user/Reddit

In case some of the annoying bugs have infested your home, you don’t need to call pest control, believe it or not! You should simply search for a package of baking soda in your kitchen or pantry and sprinkle it in all the holes you can find alongside walls and floors around your house!

Razor Burn Relief

Shaving is a regular self-care task, both for men and women. It takes time, and one must be careful not to cut themselves. Frequently, if your shaving cream or foam is not soft enough and your razor is too dull, you could experience something called razor burn.

Image courtesy of oneessentialcommunity.com

If your experiencing severe irritations, itching, and redness, what you could do is make a mixture of water and baking soda, dab a cotton ball in it, and carefully apply it to the irritated area to relieve the uneasiness. Baking soda to the rescue, once more!

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

Image courtesy of Budsies

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Image courtesy of Judirek/Reddit

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge. Use a damp sponge and baking soda to remove wall scuffs in a heartbeat. Cleaning kids’ messes have never been easier!

Make Book Odor a Thing of the Past

There is something uniquely special about old, vintage books. They are higher quality, almost ethereal, and resemble something you might see in fantasy movies. They could transform the whole feel you have about the book’s content. What about the odor that sometimes follows those older books?

Image courtesy of harleymeenen/Reddit

Since they tend to have an aged smell, we suggest you simply sprinkle baking soda in between the pages to refresh them. This hack is super easy, inexpensive, quick, and effective! It should leave your vintage books sanitized and clean!

Unclog It!

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

Image courtesy of Inda Gardening

The downside of having real flowers is they wilt quickly. However, don’t give up just yet. Of course, we have another hack for you! If you want your flower bouquets to last longer, listen up! Sprinkle a bit of baking soda into the water inside your vase. You’ll notice your flowers lasting longer than usual. If you want extra endurance, add an ice cube. You’re welcome!

Wash Fruits and Veggies

It’s no secret that vendors and supermarkets spray their fruits and vegetables with various chemicals to keep them looking ripe, fresh, and delicious for longer. Now, because we know this, we must make sure to wash it off and rinse properly.

Image courtesy of TheCorgi/Shutterstock

Baking soda is one of the most effective ways to make sure your vegged are clean and ready for use. What you should do is simply soak your fruits and vegetables in water, add a spoonful of baking soda, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it, and enjoy!

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

One weekend, you could try out this nifty hack we’ve found for you and your (possibly) smelly trash can. Open the lid if there is one, and pour in the amount of soda you think will do the job. Close it or cover the opening and let it sit for a few minutes. Your trash can will be as good as new!

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Image courtesy of HGTV

We’ve already mentioned combining vinegar, and baking soda does wonders for unclogging your drains. This combination is quite useful for getting rid of stubborn stains on your carpets. Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Image courtesy of Soap Deli News Blog

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Image courtesy of craftsyhacks.com

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Image courtesy of Delia Cabrillas/Pinterest

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Image courtesy of healthextremist.com

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Image courtesy of The Krazy Koupon Lady

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Dry Shampoo Hack

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget!

Greg believes that Del might be the great grandson of Indian Chief and Hollywood screen actor John Big Tree aka Isacc Johnny John who appeared in 59 Hollywood films between 1915 and 1950 and was the model for the Indian Chief on the head of the nickel coin.

There has been some confusion regarding the Bigtrees vs the Big Trees discussed in different online message boards.

Greg writes: But an obituary of John Big Tree says he never had any children. Forum posts on a genealogy website have similar discrepancies. A woman who went to school with Norma reports that she was the granddaughter of Chief Johnnie but later forum reports say that articles about John Big Tree indicate he did not have a family. Plus the difference in spelling from Big Tree to Bigtree. So which account is true? In typical showbiz fashion, the truth is lost when the agenda is to sell an image.

For what it’s worth, Chief John was also buried at Onondaga Reservation which perhaps adds to the confusion. My research found that Chief John had 3 wives and 2 children. Chief John is said to have been married to Phoebe White and they had a child named Deforest Johnnyjohn together. He was also married to Clara T. Jimerson, confirmed on multiple Geneology sites – and they had one child together, Birdie Johnny John.

Chief John was also married to Cynthia Johnson Big Tree who is listed as an equal suffragist and Indian Model. They had no children together. She was his last wife.

Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

Image courteys of gryffindorwannabe/Reddit

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget! All you should do is brush your retainers with baking soda and water to refresh them and keep them sanitary and clean. This way, you’ll disinfect your retainers or dentures and kill bacteria. Way to go!

It is worth noting that Chief John was born one month apart from Mitchell Bigtree and there could be some link here, but I wasn’t able to confirm it. From what I found, there is no relation between Del Bigtree and Chief John, but there certainly could be some swapping or hiding going on in the genealogy sites.

Unfortunately, this is not my area of expertise so I will explicitly say right now that this is just speculation.

I emailed Miles Mathis several times to see if I could get some help but he never responded.

There are rumors that Del and his sister might be adopted, but that’s all they are, rumors. It is worth nothing that Del and his sister look very much alike…

No More Bad Fridge Scent

There is nothing more embarrassing than opening up your fridge in front of your date, and it reeks! Who knows of what. All that food accumulating during the week, leftovers, a little rotten tomato, bananas from the market, meal prepped eggs…It’s a disaster!

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If you have a baking soda container, you can immediately solve your issue. Just poke a small hole, or make an opening in your soda carton and leave it in the fridge. The baking soda neutralizes odors and leaves your fridge feeling clean and fresh!

Say Goodbye to Lefrover Stains

One of the most annoying things about delicious Thanksgiving or Christmas leftovers has to be food or liquid stains that stay on the plastic Tupperware or glass containers. It looks messy, and for some reason, you avoid using them again because they don’t look clean or sanitary.Image Courtesy of Blue Apron’s Blog

If you soak your stained leftover containers in baking soda mixed with water for around half an hour and then use a sponge or moist cloth to clean the surface, you’ll be surprised as to how easy it comes off! This is a hack and a half, especially during the holiday season.

Splinter Remover

It was so easy getting a splinter in your foot, hand, or fingers when we were children. Curiosity indeed kills the cat. However, it also causes injuries to people too. Whether working with wood is in your job description or you just have a creative hobby, this hack will be helpful.

Baking soda can help remove splinters and ease swelling under the skin. If a splinter is stuck underneath your skin, you can mix up water and baking soda, thus making a paste, and apply it to the swollen area to draw the splinter out. Cover it with a bandaid, leave it until the next day, and it will naturally come out.

Grill Cleaner

Cookouts with your squad are always fun. They’re perfect for creating memories, having fun, eating delicious grilled goodies, and playing board games. Sometimes even drinking games. But, no underage drinking folks! However, after an exciting grilling weekend, someone has to clean the grill.

With baking soda, grill grimes are a thing of the past! The only thing you should do to clean the grill properly is let it cool down, use baking soda, gently rub it, and remove the grit with a brush. Grilling and cleaning have never been so easy!

Perfect Patio

There is nothing better than spending your summer nights on your patio, hanging out with your friends and family, talking about funny memories, playing games, and scaring each other off with ghost stories. The only thing that can spoil this experience is filthy patio furniture you can’t clean.

If you use a baking soda and water mixture, you could easily wipe away the dirt, grease, and residue that has accumulated over time. Moreover, when or if you store your patio furniture inside during the winter months, you can place a bag of baking soda in the storage to keep the furniture fresh.

Cankers Be Gone!

Mouth ulcers can be such a bore! They hurt, swell, and eating food seems like an impossible task while suffering from this annoying condition. They usually last for a few days and sometimes up to a week. There is a home remedy, including baking soda, that can help you!

Image courtesy of Jimmy Tudeschi/Shutterstock

To get rid of it, all you need to do is rub baking soda directly on the canker and then rinse with a mixture of baking soda and water. Your pain and swelling should be relieved soon after. Sometimes, you don’t have to pay a lot of money at the pharmacy, but rather peep into your cupboards in search of baking soda!

Cleaning Silverware

Silverware can sometimes get extremely stained due to its constant usage, cleaning, washing, putting in the dishwasher, etc. The steel wears off, loses its initial shine, and seems shabby. However, we have another baking soda hack for your household!

Image courtesy of lemonslavenderandlaundry.com

All you need to do is pour boiling water into an aluminum pan and add a teaspoon or two of baking soda. After making the mixture, you should simply add your silverware to it and let it sit for a while. Then extract them from the pan, cool them, and dry them. Voila!

Removing Coffee Stains

Do you know what is one of the most annoying things about drinking coffee? Certainly, coffee stains tint the cup permanently. Imagine running a cafe or inviting guests over for a cup of the hot beverage, just to find your mugs and cups all stained and damaged. How frustrating!

Image courtesy of picklepower54/Reddit

There is, of course, an easy and straightforward solution. Listen up! Sprinkle baking soda into the cups and let it sit for approximately a few minutes. Then, take a piece of cloth or sponge, dip it into cold water, and scrub the inside of a stained cup. You can thank us later!

Relieve Bug Bites

Mosquito bites are the worst! Any bug bites are extremely irritating, itchy, and in the end, annoying as heck! Sometimes, expensive cream and itch relievers are not too effective, and at times, can seem more costly than you can afford at the moment.

Image courtesy of lifeisasunsetblog.ca

There is a very simple and affordable solution! What you could try next time a nasty bug bites you and leaves a mark is to create a paste from baking soda and water and apply it directly on the place where you’ve been bitten. Baking soda draws out fluids and can help relieve the itchiness.

Homemade Teeth Whitener

Whitening your teeth has become somewhat of a trend, and it’s no wonder as to why! White teeth look beautiful, healthy and showcase a person who takes good care of themselves. A person that smokes, drinks a lot of black coffee, or simply wants to take better care of their teeth with love this hack!

Image courtesy of naturallyhandcrafted.org

Whitening the teeth can be somewhat expensive. Lucky for you, baking soda can help here as well! This is one of the most economical ways of scrubbing plaque build-up and surface stains on teeth. Simply brush your teeth with baking soda after brushing your teeth with toothpaste.

Pest Control

We already talked about bugs when we mentioned how to get rid of bug bites. Sometimes, bugs don’t bite, but they infest your home like ants, cockroaches, beetles, ladybugs, moths, etc. The list is endless. However, baking soda saves the day once more!

Image courtesy of deleted user/Reddit

In case some of the annoying bugs have infested your home, you don’t need to call pest control, believe it or not! You should simply search for a package of baking soda in your kitchen or pantry and sprinkle it in all the holes you can find alongside walls and floors around your house!

Razor Burn Relief

Shaving is a regular self-care task, both for men and women. It takes time, and one must be careful not to cut themselves. Frequently, if your shaving cream or foam is not soft enough and your razor is too dull, you could experience something called razor burn.

Image courtesy of oneessentialcommunity.com

If your experiencing severe irritations, itching, and redness, what you could do is make a mixture of water and baking soda, dab a cotton ball in it, and carefully apply it to the irritated area to relieve the uneasiness. Baking soda to the rescue, once more!

Refresh Stuffed Animals

Children love playing with stuffed animals. They are soft, cuddly, and somewhat of a replacement for a pet all kids want, but parents don’t. However, these stuffed animals must be sanitized and refreshed from time to time due to the material they are made of. They collect a lot of dust and dirt.

Image courtesy of Budsies

To ensure your child is playing with a safe plushy, you should simply put it into a box with baking soda. Shake the box to make sure soda seeps into holes and crevices of the toy and draws out the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the years.

Wall Scuffs Begone!

Now, let’s stay on the topic of children. These little misfits can be quite mischievous. They misbehave, ignore mom’s and dad’s orders, sneakily do something bad, and might blame it on the house dog or babysitter. Overall, children are a handful.

Image courtesy of Judirek/Reddit

Their actions even affect house walls. So, next time you notice suspicious pencil markings on the walls, do not fret! There is a solution. All you’ll need is baking soda and a sponge. Use a damp sponge and baking soda to remove wall scuffs in a heartbeat. Cleaning kids’ messes have never been easier!

Make Book Odor a Thing of the Past

There is something uniquely special about old, vintage books. They are higher quality, almost ethereal, and resemble something you might see in fantasy movies. They could transform the whole feel you have about the book’s content. What about the odor that sometimes follows those older books?

Image courtesy of harleymeenen/Reddit

Since they tend to have an aged smell, we suggest you simply sprinkle baking soda in between the pages to refresh them. This hack is super easy, inexpensive, quick, and effective! It should leave your vintage books sanitized and clean!

Unclog It!

What is something that we all use every single day without exception? The bathroom, of course. When nature calls, there is no other solution but to oblige. Now, if you don’t wash your hands, friend, you might want to start doing so!Image Courtesy of Lacey Johnson/The Spruce

Be careful to check your drains once in a while since hairs, dust, dirt, and other materials can end up clogging them. If this happens, don’t panic. All you’ll need is a baking soda and vinegar mixture. Since this mixture bubbles, make sure to use a light hand when sprinkling the soda on top. Cover it, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with hot water.

Prolong Your Bouquet Lifespan

Having a wonderful flower arrangement in your house can significantly improve the overall energy and vibe. It brings life into any home, breaks up the space, and introduces color. Besides, a beautiful flower scent is an amazing bonus, whether it’s roses, daffodils, or peonies.

The downside of having real flowers is they wilt quickly. However, don’t give up just yet. Of course, we have another hack for you! If you want your flower bouquets to last longer, listen up! Sprinkle a bit of baking soda into the water inside your vase. You’ll notice your flowers lasting longer than usual. If you want extra endurance, add an ice cube. You’re welcome!

Wash Fruits and Veggies

It’s no secret that vendors and supermarkets spray their fruits and vegetables with various chemicals to keep them looking ripe, fresh, and delicious for longer. Now, because we know this, we must make sure to wash it off and rinse properly.

Image courtesy of TheCorgi/Shutterstock

Baking soda is one of the most effective ways to make sure your vegged are clean and ready for use. What you should do is simply soak your fruits and vegetables in water, add a spoonful of baking soda, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it, and enjoy!

Deodorize Your Trash Can

We’ve talked about smelly refrigerators and the uneasiness they can cause. It’s much better to live in a stink-free household. That’s why it’s of utmost importance to deodorize your trash cans as regularly as anything. Even though you often take out the trash, there is still some residue that accumulates.Image Courtesy of The Kitchn

One weekend, you could try out this nifty hack we’ve found for you and your (possibly) smelly trash can. Open the lid if there is one, and pour in the amount of soda you think will do the job. Close it or cover the opening and let it sit for a few minutes. Your trash can will be as good as new!

Refresh Pet Beds

We have a habit of changing our sheets every once in a while, depending on how tidy we are. However, we should not neglect the level of cleanness of our pets’ beds. It’s important to sanitize them from time to time, keeping them fresh and clean for furry friends to enjoy.

Image courtesy of ~????~/Reddit

To help your pet and clean their bed, all you need to do is sprinkle baking soda on it and let it soak for about 15 minutes. After that, just take a vacuum cleaner and suck in all the baking soda residue from the bed, keeping it nice and sanitized.

Get Rid of Annoying Carpet Stains

If you’re clumsy, someone in your household is, or if you invite guests often, you can expect a few permanent stains here and there, especially on carpets and rugs. Those are the worst. No one’s home is perfect. But, yours can be! We have a solution.

Image courtesy of HGTV

We’ve already mentioned combining vinegar, and baking soda does wonders for unclogging your drains. This combination is quite useful for getting rid of stubborn stains on your carpets. Just spray this fizzling mixture directly on the stain and start scrubbing with a sponge or cloth. Remember to enjoy your perfectly clean house once you’re done!

Mouthwash on a Budget

Mouthwash is an integral part of people’s daily routine. Sometimes brushing teeth with toothpaste and rinsing your mouth and tongue with it is not enough. Mouthwash is there to protect your overall oral health, provide immunity, and kill unhealthy bacteria.

Image courtesy of Soap Deli News Blog

Since baking soda has potent anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is an easy and affordable substitute for the conventional mouthwash you buy in your local grocery store. Just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a glass of warm water and swish!

Jellyfish Sting Treatment

Most people love vacationing at the beach, basking in the sun, and enjoying a gentle summer breeze. While traveling and spending your days off at the beach, you can sunbathe, play sports, and swim. The possibilities are endless, and everything is seamless.

Image courtesy of Murph_18/Reddit

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Image courtesy of womensday.com

If this happened to you, and now you have water rings all over your wooden kitchen table you paid a fortune for – do not fret! Once again, baking soda can and will help! Simply mix baking soda with water and use a cloth to remove the water rings! Next time you forget coasters, remember, there is a solution!

Disinfect Your Sponge

Do you ever feel like you are going through sponges too quickly?! Almost like you use them out entirely in just a few weeks of them. The secret is as follows: even though you use your sponge to clean, you must clean the sponge as well! Shocking!

Image courtesy of fidgetspinnerz/Reddit

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Image courtesy of craftsyhacks.com

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

Image courtesy of UrsaHomma/Reddit

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Image courtesy of Delia Cabrillas/Pinterest

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Image courtesy of healthextremist.com

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda.

Now, if you’re not careful enough, you could stumble upon a jellyfish. Jellyfish are visually beautiful creatures with transparent bodies and unique, vibrant colors. However, they can sting, and when they do, make sure to rinse the sting with vinegar and then apply a hot water and baking soda mixture. It is said to do wonders for relieving the pain.

Remove Water Rings

Oftentimes, when we are hosting a gathering at our house, or a party, or a dinner for work friends, we get flustered, anxious, and perhaps even exhausted from preparing all the food, beverages and wanting it to be perfect. In all the fuss, we can forget to use coasters.

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Image courtesy of WikiHow

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

Image courtesy of elizabethmaaee/Reddit

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

Image courtesy of Little Things

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents. If you’d like to go a step further, you could sprinkle a bit of baking soda into your shoes and let it sit overnight.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Since baking soda is a natural antacid, it helps out with stomach acids and relieves heartburn. Make sure to take one teaspoon of baking soda and mix it with a glass full of water. Mix well and drink slowly. You should feel better almost instantly.

Homemade Face Mask

Finding perfect yet affordable skincare products is a tiring task. We don’t give enough credit to people that do it so well! Buy this, buy that, and the spending is neverending! It seems like you need a whole rack of expensive products. But no more!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

Image courtesy of Serious Eats

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

Image courtesy of heyugogirl/Reddit

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Image courtesy of Diply

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Image courtesy of NatureFriend/Unsplash

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget!

Sponges are sort of like a breeding ground for bacteria, and they should be cleaned halfway through their life span. If you wish to prolong the life of your sponge, make sure to soak it in a water and baking soda mix to disinfect them. Good luck!

Mildew Remover

If you are a perfectionist like ourselves, you’ll find it difficult not to clean all the small crevices you simply can’t reach or can’t disinfect well enough. Mildew usually forms in bathrooms due to humidity and the constant circulation of water.

Baking soda can help you with mildew as well! Create a paste with water and baking soda to scrub the inscrutable bathtub, shower, toilet, basin, and tiles. Afterward, make sure to rinse with water. If you want to go all out, spray the area with white vinegar to disinfect it even more.

Saving an Unfortunately Burnt Pan

Some of us are just not as good at cooking as others are. Accidents happen, okay?! You drop a bowl, a pancake ends up on the wall or ceiling, you manage to burn spinach and such. Now, there is a savior for those of us who make mistakes and burn pans!

Some pots and pans require more detailed cleaning, that’s all! If you want to save your favorite pan and not throw it away due to extreme residue and damage, we advise you to add baking soda to the pan generously, fill it with water and scrub away.

Sunburn Relief

SPF is an essential part of skincare, and if you want to enjoy your stay at the beach fully, make sure to pack an SPF of at least 30 to 50. This won’t prevent you from getting a nice bronze tan but instead prolong the length of time you can spend outside, enjoying the weather.

However, if you don’t protect your vulnerable skin, you’ll get a sunburn, no doubt. Sunburns can be painful, and burns can even turn out severe. To help alleviate the pain, mix cold water and baking soda and apply it to the burns.

Eliminates Feet Odor

Wearing shoes all the time and doing straining activities can leave your feet smelling, well, not so nice, to say the least. Unpleasant foot odor is nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. It happens to everyone, and the key is to find a perfect and easy solution.

What you should do to eliminate foot odor is simply soak your feet in water with baking soda. Since baking soda has the anti-microbial properties we talked about, it eliminates unwanted scents.

Cleaning Car Battery Terminals

Taking care of one’s car is important. If you don’t pay close attention to details, you might find yourself more often than not ringing your mechanic’s number for another check-up or appointment. Believe it or not, baking soda can help in keeping your car clean and sound.

The build-up in your car’s battery can be nasty. Therefore, you should clean it regularly, and you can do so by creating a paste made out of baking soda and water mixed together. Carefully disconnect the battery and use a toothbrush with the liquid paste to reach all crevices and clean the battery meticulously.

Heartburn Reliever

If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, heartburn is no stranger to you. It’s a very uncomfortable sensation that could only make the initial psychological trigger even worse. Worry no more, of course, because we have an answer to all your problems, and of course, all of them include baking soda!

Baking soda has anti-inflammatory properties, and therefore is a perfect product for skincare and improving skin imperfections. It calms acne and skin redness, reduces swelling, and leaves your face clean and fresh. To make a face mask, all you need to do is mix water, baking soda, and lemon juice.

Dry Shampoo Hack

For years we’ve come to love using dry shampoos quickly before heading out to do errands, to go on a date or a meeting. They are convenient, smell nice, and soak up the oils from your scalp, making your hair look a day or two cleaner!Image Courtesy of Folder

If you don’t want to spend your money on expensive brands and consume products from the stores, you can always DIY your own dry shampoo. All you need is – you guessed it – baking soda. Sprinkle it lightly on your scalp and massage it. It should gather the oils and provide you with a presentable hairstyle!

Remove Unwanted Weeds

If you’re a control freak, even the innocent weeds that seep through your pavement or driveway may cause you some annoyance. There are sprays that could remove and kill the weeds. However, they are not the best ecological solution. There is a better one!

Since baking soda is not toxic, biodegradable, and good for the environment, it’s a perfect yet affordable solution for killing weeds. Sprinkle baking soda in the crevices of the pavement, and after a few days, you will notice them wilting away.

Clean Your Shower Curtain

As cleaning your bathroom is important, cleaning and sanitizing your shower curtain is vital as well! Different bacteria and mildew can form on the curtain, and you want to make sure it’s squeaky clean. If you don’t know what to use for sanitizing it, hear us out.

To remove dirt, stains, and accumulated mildew, all you need to do is scrub your shower curtain with baking soda and a damp brush, and voila! You’ll have a refreshed, squeaky clean shower curtain that matches your impeccable bathroom tiles.

Stop a Cooking Fire

Not everyone has access to a fire extinguisher. Let’s agree on that premise. So what does someone do in the case of a small cooking fire? Of course, you could try to put it out with an apron or a kitchen cloth. However, those things might catch on fire as well.

If a small cooking fire occurs, quickly grab baking soda. It will provide the necessary carbon dioxide to put out the fire. Just throw in a handful of it in a pot or a pan. Baking soda is an essential part of fire extinguishers, so it’s not a bad idea to have it on hand in case of any accidents.

Strip Paint with Baking Soda

Sometimes, we get bored of the same old design and colors and wish to change things up a bit. Even painting your table in a new and bold color can spruce up your house or apartment. However, stripping the old paint can be straining and stressful.

If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, all you need is to try scrapping with baking soda. Mix baking soda with hot water and apply it to the surface you’d like to scrape paint from. Then use a tool and start scraping the paint. It’s non-toxic, safe, and easy. Good luck!

Vibrant Laundry

After some time, our clothes and laundry lose their initial color and even texture. You brought a vibrant pink sweater, but now it looks more of a maroon color. We can use products to make the color more permanent and prevalent. One of the ways we can achieve this is by using, you guessed it, baking soda!

Adding half a cup of baking soda to your regular liquid detergent will ensure your clothes to be brighter, more vibrant, and nicer. It works on both colored and white laundry. Besides the color enhancement, baking soda will ensure your laundry is odor-free.

Disinfect Your Retainers

Dental health and care are some of the most critical aspects of overall health. We consume different foods and liquids all the time, so taking care of oral hygiene should be at the top of our priority list! Especially if you are wearing retainers or braces, you must make sure they are clean and disinfected properly.

Since baking soda is a powerful disinfectant, it is an excellent solution for staying on budget!
