The amazing uses for baking soda!

bking sda boxBaking soda is so underrated!… amazing little powder that it is!

I’ve often touted the extraordinary abilities of distilled white vinegar but have never given baking soda the kudos it deserves… and there are endless possibilities!  It’s biodegradable and earth-friendly and a “must” for your grocery list.

Here is just a (very small) sampling of all the ways you can put it to work:

  • Health and beauty – ease an upset tummy or relieve itchy skin; use as a deodorant, toothpaste, body scrub or skin softener.bking sda
  • Home – odor absorber (we all recognize this one, but also…), it’s a deodorizer, a drain-unclogger, and a pest and insect repellent.
  • Cleaning – remove stains, grease, build-up and smells; polish stainless steel and chrome; boost your laundry detergent; clean and deodorize anything and everything from the top to the bottom of your home.

I could spend a month giving you all of the formulations (a simple online search will give you tons of instructions) but I’m just here to urge you to consider it… buy it, use it, embrace it… that little orange box is a great green friend!

(P.S. if you have a new and unique way to use baking soda… by all means, share it!)

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Baking Soda IS amazing stuff. I’ve often thought if I were on a show such as “Survivor,” baking soda would be the one item I would take!

  2. I started making my own toothpaste a few months ago with baking soda as the base. It works fine. No one is complaining about my breath. You are supposed to add salt as an abrasive, but the baking soda is salty enough for me so I haven’t. I rinse with peroxide and voila. It’s all great–practically free and best of all, no tubes to dispose of!

  3. Will have to find the vnegar posting. Western science has us believing that an upset tummy needs anti acid. Do you know what it does? It shuts off your natural stomache acids or depleats it. Then your body reacts by producing a large quantity of acid to overcome the attack. Stomache acid in quantity is the cure. Its like those parts of the country like NJ where you have to go right to go left. A table spoon or so of vinegar is the more direct answer. It does taste bad, but so does apsirin if you leave it on your tongue too long. Dilute it in water and or add a sweetner.

  4. You mentioned baking soda as a body scrub, but is also good to use as a facial exfoliant. I wouldn’t recommend using it everyday, maybe 2-3 times a week for glowing skin 🙂

  5. Lolo – no kidding! Great idea!

  8. Baking Soda is a great alternative to ANY commercial scrub. Just mix a bit of it in your hand with water to form a paste, and scrub. Feels heavenly, is 100% natural, and costs next to nothing. 😉
