In time for spring cleaning, I thought I'd run some blog posts I've done earlier on using things you have around the house. Here's one on baking soda:
- To eliminate crayon, pencil, ink, and furniture scuffs from painted surfaces, sprinkle a little baking soda on a damp cloth, run clean, and rinse.
- To tackle tough stains on enameled cast iron, scrub with a soft nylon brush and a thick paste of baking soda and water.
- To remove stains from stainless steel, dissolve 4 tablespoons of baking soda in 1 quart of water and clean with a soft cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
- Sprinkle baking soda on casseroles or roasting pans with baked-on food or stains. Let it work for five minutes, followed by a light scrub and rinse..
- Sprinkle baking soda on minor oil and grease spills on a garage floor or driveway, and scrub with a wet brush.
Aren't these helpful things to know?
