Baking Soda Book Uses of Baking Soda

Baking soda and children

We were all kids once, far from the worries of loans, vices and gossip. It was all about toys, best friends and water guns. All that mattered was how early we would get up to ride the bike to meet up with the rest of the little giants. Now that those times are over for us, it's time to bring out the baking soda and serve the kids.

Bed wetting
If you have young children, sprinkle their mattress with baking soda before you put the sheet back on their bed. This helps cut down on smells left behind from bed wetters.

Stuffed animals
Keep your children’s stuffed animals smelling fresh by putting them in a pillowcase, sprinkling them with baking soda, and then shake them around a bit.

Baby bottles
To clean out your baby bottles, getting rid of sour smells, soak them overnight with water and a few tablespoons of baking soda in each. 

Toys
To keep toy boxes clean and fresh, wipe the insides of them out about once a month with a quart of warm water mixed with a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar. This will cut germs while it deodorizes at the same time.

Cribs and playpens
You can wash down your child’s crib or playpen with a mixture of one half-cup baking soda, one-quarter cup of vinegar and a quart of warm water. This cuts grease and grime from hands while deodorizing vomit and urine smells at the same time, doing all this safely without having to worry about chemicals and your child.

Crayon marks
You can easily remove those crayon marks on the walls or on the dresser with a little help from your baking soda. Making a thin paste of baking soda and water, use an old toothbrush to scrub the crayon right off the wall without having to repaint!

Diapers
Add a cup of baking soda to the diaper pail to keep the urine smell from invading your home. Adding a sprinkle with each diaper helps fight smells every time you open it.
