Keep these tricks in mind:

For the counters

You can keep your kitchen counters spotless using baking soda. Just sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth then wipe your kitchen counters to remove dirt or clean spills. Rinse with water afterwards.

For silverware

Remove tarnish from your kitchen silverware by mixing three parts of baking soda with one part water to create a cleaning paste. Rub it onto each piece then rinse with warm water. Dry your items with soft cloth.

For pipelines

Residue from your shampoo can get stuck to your bathroom pipes. Prevent problems by pouring a half cup of baking soda mixed with with a half cup of vinegar down the drain to clean your pipes. After the solution, pour a cup of water to rinse the pipes.

For cooking pans

Are the bottoms of your kitchen pans filled with scum or burnt food? Remove these with the help of baking soda! Fill the pan with water, vinegar, and baking soda then boil the solution. If there are still stubborn marks left, drizzle a couple more baking soda to the pan then scrub it lightly with a sponge. 

For scribbles on walls

Did your little one write on your walls? Don’t worry! You can erase the scribble marks by going over the marks using a damp cloth and a sprinkling of baking soda. Scrub lightly until the drawings dissolve.

For stains

Remove stains from your teacups, coffee cups, and teapots by applying a baking soda paste (mix it with water to create the paste). Rub it gently over the affected area to remove discoloration. Click here to learn more about removing stains.
