I never knew that baking soda was so versatile and useful for cleaning! I need to go to the supermarket and stock up on this product!

  1. Remove marks off wall: Make a paste with 50/50 baking soda and water and wipe.
  2. Use as deodorant: Rub a pinch under your arms to eliminate odour.
  3. Clean a smelly drain: Add a cup of baking soda and leave for an hour and then pour 2 cups of boiling white vinegar .
  4. Clean grout: Sprinkle baking soda on the grout and scrub.
  5. Add toughness to any cleaner: Use baking soda with your favourite cleaner to add abrasion which helps move stubborn marks.
  6. Deodorise your cat litter: Sprinkle baking soda in your tray when you replace the kitty litter.
  7. Clean your oven: Spray your oven with white vinegar and sprinkle with baking soda, leave for half an hour and then scrub off.
  8. Wash build up out of your hair: Add a tablespoon of baking soda to your shampoo every couple of weeks and rinse as usual. The baking soda will clarify your hair and remove product residue.
  9. Deodorise your carpet: Sprinkle baking soda on carpet, leave for 30 minutes and then vacuum off.
  10. Deodorise clothes: Add a cup of baking soda to your laundry to brighten and deodorise your clothes.

  • Have used bi-carb and vinegar to not just make the drain smell okay, but to also unblock a drain and worked a treat. Love the idea of using on carpet to also freshen, will give it a go, thanks for the article.


  • Great tips thank you. I will definitely try the wall cleaning tip!


  • i knew this, i just cleaned my stove with bicarb this morning. if its really stubborn, tea tree oil does the trick too. putting in hair is new to me.
    you can make bicarb paste with water and wash your face with it, it will cleanse your face and its good for pimples too.
