Eco-Friendly Tips: Bicarbonate of Soda

We should all have a box of bicarbonate of soda in our cupboards. It is an eco-friendly product with so many uses.

We feature 5 great tips in the home...

Boost Your Liquid Laundry Detergent:

By adding 1/2 cup of bicarbonate of soda to your laundry, you can help to make your liquid detergent work harder. A better balance of pH in the wash gets clothes cleaner, fresher and brighter.

Clean Coffee and Tea Pots:

Remove coffee and tea stains and eliminate bitter off-tastes by washing mugs and coffee makers in a solution of 1/4 cup baking soda in 1 quart of warm water. For stubborn stains, try soaking overnight in the baking soda solution and detergent or scrubbing with baking soda on a clean damp sponge.

Hand wash Dishes and Pots & Pans:

Add 2 heaping tablespoons baking soda (along with your regular dish detergent) to the dish water to help cut grease and foods left on dishes, pots and pans. For cooked-on foods, let them soak in the baking soda and detergent with water first, then use dry baking soda on a clean damp sponge or cloth as a scratchless scouring powder. Using a dishwasher?

Clean Brushes and Combs:

For lustrous hair with more shine, keep brushes and combs clean. Remove natural oil build-up and hair product residue by soaking combs and brushes in a solution of 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a small basin of warm water. Rinse and allow to dry.

Clean Floors:

Remove dirt and grime (without unwanted scratch marks) from no wax and tile floors using 1/2 cup baking soda in a bucket of warm water–mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor. For scuff marks, use baking soda on a clean damp sponge, then rinse.
