The Many Uses of ...
Baking Soda

Use #1: Scrubbing Stuff

Perhaps the most versatile all-around eco-friendly household product, baking soda is well known for deodorizing refrigerators and being and ingredient in various yummy baked goods. It is, however, also an awesome lightly abrasive scrubber for sinks, counters, tubs ... pretty much anything you can think of. Just sprinkle it liberally on the surface you want to scrub and apply elbow grease with a wet sponge or rag.

Baking soda not harsh chemically or as an abrasive, so it doesn't poison you or scratch surfaces. There's not warning about using in a well-ventilated area, because it won't choke you when you use it.

Living in Houston, land of humidity, I've always had a problem trying to keep my sponges from mildewing. Since I've been using baking soda to scrub the sinks, however - voila! the problem is gone. No commercial cleanser has ever been able to compare.
