Dishwasher Spot Stopper

I purchased the book entitled TALKING DIRTY WITH THE QUEEN OF CLEAN by Linda Cobb. Here are some ways baking soda can help you with your cleaning duties:

Baking soda is a great deodorizer, cleaner and mild abrasive. Use as you would a sofe-scrubbing product or cleanser in tubs and sinks.

Keep food disposals fresh and free-flowing by putting the stopper in the disposal and adding 3 inches of warm water and a handful of baking soda. Turn on the disposal and let water run out.

Remove perspiration stains and odor from clothing by applying a paste of baking soda and water and letting it soak 30 minutes prior to laundering.

Mix 1 gallon of warm water and 1/4 cup of baking soda. Soak freshly washed socks in this for 30 minutes. Spin out in the washer (do not rinse out the solution), dry and you will have odor-eater socks.

Clean smudges on wallpaper with baking soda and water.

Remove crayon from hard surface as a mild abrasive to remove stains. (sorry kids, your art work has to gooooooooooooo)

Baking soda is always a staple in our home. :) I'm sure there are so many tips I didn't know about. I may have to check that book out.
