By this time, we all know that baking soda is an all-star cleaner—it can take away stains, melt away gunk, and remove unpleasant odors. You can find a use for it in practically every spot of your home, but it's probably most useful in the room you store it in: the kitchen. Here are five ways you can use baking soda in one of the busiest parts of your home: 

1. Clean your electric stovetop.  

To clean your stovetop, you need three ingredients: dish soap, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide. Apply them to the dirty surface in that order and scrub away at any stains. Let the solution sit for a few minutes before wiping it off with a microfiber cloth.  

2. Remove encrusted food from the insides of your oven.

Got food spills in your oven that just won’t come off? Make a paste with ½ cup of water, about ¼ to ½ cup of baking soda, and a tablespoon of dish soap. Apply to your oven with an old sponge and let the paste work its magic for 30 minutes. The gunk should come off with the mixture when you wipe off the surface and rinse it with warm water.

3. Make enamel pans look new again.

Turn on the stove and fill your pan with ½ inch of hydrogen and ¼ cup of baking soda. Let the mixture boil until it becomes foamy, then take it off the heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Then, toss the mixture out of the pan and scrub it with a heavy-duty sponge. Voila! Sparkling clean pans that look like they came straight out of the box.

4. Deep clean the slow-cooker.

Fill the slow cooker with water and a cup of white vinegar. Add approximately a cup of baking soda one tablespoon at a time, letting bubbles die down in between tablespoons. Set the slow cooker to low and you’ll wake up to a spotless appliance in the morning.

5. Make your stainless steel sink sparkle.

Sprinkle baking soda all over your sink and scrub it in using a toothbrush or sponge. Rinse off as you normally would then marvel at how shiny your sink is.
