Baking soda in your kitchen : Page 3

Dishcloths and sponges
To keep your dishcloth or your dish sponges smelling great and clean, sprinkle them with baking soda after you are finished washing the dishes. Sometimes dishcloths can get a little sour between your washes and using baking soda will cut down on the smell.

Stove fires
If you have a stove fire when you are cooking, you can sprinkle on baking soda to put out a fire. You can do this in the oven as well, if you are careful not to stick your hand to far in the fire and get burnt yourself.

Stainless steel sinks
Do you have a new stainless steel sink that you want to keep scratch free? You can add a half a cup of baking soda to one cup of club soda and clean your sinks for a great clean that will not scratch your stainless steel finish.

Hard water stains
Cut hard water stains around your faucet by putting a little baking soda on the area, and wiping it clean with full strength vinegar on a cloth.

Drains
A recipe that you can use to clean your kitchen and your bathroom drains is this: take one cup of baking soda, one cup of vinegar, and then pour this mixture down the drain to neutralize and deodorize at the same time. This also helps cut grease in your drains while you are deodorizing.

You can also clean your drains using baking soda and salt. Using one half cup of baking soda and one half cup of salt, pour this down your drain. Then using boiling water, pour two cups of water down each drain that you have put the baking soda and salt mixture into. This will fizz a little but this is the baking soda at work on tough grease.
