In Praise of Baking Soda

Baking soda is the best. Not only can you use it in cooking, but you can also use it to clean and deodorize your home.

We all know that placing a box in your refrigerator or freezer for 30 days keeps food tasting fresh. The box even has a handy dandy spot to jot down your change date on the side of the box. But did you know that it can be used to deodorize your garbage disposal? When my disposal gets smelly, I pour about 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup distilled white vinegar in, then flush with warm water. It deodorizes the drain and makes it smell a-ok. Follow up with lemon peel and it smells great. You can vary the amount of baking soda and/or vinegar. When I'm in a hurry I just dump the baking soda in, skip the vinegar, and flush with water. Especially handy when you're cooking.

There are tons of other uses, too. Go to Arm & Hammer for more tips.

Green and clean, baby!
