Burnt food on pans
You can get burnt foods out of your pans easily by sprinkling them with baking soda and adding hot water for about an hour. The burnt on foods will loosen and the any odor will disappear in no time at all.
You can clean your plastic containers using a thick paste of baking soda and vinegar, which helps deodorize, while it takes out crusty foods fast.
Making a thick paste of three tablespoons of baking soda and one tablespoon of water works great for polishing silverware, especially between the lines and in little decorative areas of your silverware.
Once a week you can add a half-cup of baking soda to your coffee maker to keep your coffee maker (or the new tea makers!) clean and odor free.
Do your coffee pots have stubborn stains on it? Making a thick paste of baking soda and water, with a couple of drops of vinegar, you can wipe this mixture on, let it dry and then rinse off for a great sparkle that will look good as new.
If you have a gas stove, sometimes you will find that gravies, soups or other liquids might drip down on the burners and clog portions of your burners. You can clean these easily by boiling a pan of water, adding a cup of baking soda and inserting the burner for just a few minutes. Let this air dry and you will notice – no more clog!
