I use baking soda and vinegar in the bathtub. I have really sensitive skin and the rare time I have a bath, if there are any commercial cleansers in there...I'll get hives. Baking soda and vinegar is the only thing that doesn't give me hives.

Baking soda & vinegar will get crusted on foods out of your stainless steel pots & pans



Baking soda in your laundry will help get rid of smells



Baking soda is a good mild abrasive for scrubbing sinks, counters, microwaves etc



in a cat box to eliminate smell, general laundry booster, in your fridge to get rid of smells too...

Baking soda is great for coffee pots, cleaning stove top burner pans, and its a good abrasive to clean tubs and showers.

One of my favorite uses for Baking Soda is actually for heartburn. I used it a lot during late pregnancy when the heartburn was intense and constant. Dissolve a half teaspoon into half cup of water (must dissolve first) and it cuts the acid instantly. It was perfect during pregnancy since there was no medicine in it at all; just pure acid-cutting power :)

I use it to clean most anything. I have mixed it w/ Dr Bronner's soap to make a soft scrub, w/ tea tree oil to make a scouring powder, put it in cloth diaper pails for stink prevention, used it as a laundry booster. It can be used as a tooth powder (but not too too often b/c it can damage enamel if used too much). I use it in my hair a part of my homemade shampoo routine. It makes a good face scrub too. That's all I can think of at the moment. There are probably lots more uses.
