If you have a book that got a little wet sitting on your counters, you can dry it right up by sprinkling a bit of baking soda over the wet pages. Flipping through the pages will dust the baking soda off of the pages easily.
If you have an indoor pool, you can clean around the pool using a mixture of baking soda and water to clean walkways so that moisture will not turn to mold and mildew.

Tub and shower doors
You can make a paste of one cup of baking soda and a half-cup of vinegar to clean your tub and your shower doors. This paste will cut mold, mildew and soap scum while leaving a fresh clean behind.
Tiles and grout
You can scrub tile and grout through out your home with an old toothbrush and a thick paste of baking soda and water. The toothbrush will help you reach into small areas while the baking soda goes to work on the dirt.
You can clean out your sink using a half-cup of baking soda, a cup of vinegar and a cup of water. Wiping the inside of your sink down with this mixture with a soft cloth will leave a sparkling clean that will also freshen your drain as you rinse it down!
