Here's what it says on the baking soda box that i buy :
LAUNDRY BOOSTER - Add 125ml(1/2 cup) to the wash with your detergent to boost cleaning power and neutralize tough odors.
CAT LITTER DEODORIZING - Cover the bottom of your cat's litter box with baking soda before adding litter. To freshen in between changes, sprinkle baking soda on top of the litter, after cleaning.
GENERAL PURPOSE CLEANING - Apply to damp sponge, wipe and rinse well. Safely cleans kitchen and bathroom surfaces without scratching. Try it on microwaves, sinks/counters, pots & pans, tubs and showers.
BATH ADDITIVE - Adult-125ml(1/2 cup) in your bath leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
SWIMMING POOL pH MAINTENANCE - write to us for info.
SEPTIC TANK CARE - Keep the septic working smoothly! Baking soda creates a favourable pH environment for optimal bacterial action. Pour 1 cup (250ml) of baking soda down any toilet or drain once a week.
SILVER CLEANING - Use a paste made with 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water. Rub onto the silver with a clean cloth or sponge. Rinse thoroughly and dry for shining sterling and silver-plated serving pieces.
I also use baking soda as an underarm deodorant. It works WAY better than those crappy synthetic deodorants they sell in stores. For instance, Monday morning i'll take a shower and apply the baking soda after. There won't be any odour ALL DAY long. Even the next day there won't be any odour (believe it or not). Here's how i use it - I wet my underarms, then put my wet index finger inside the box to cover the tip with some soda. I then pat it over my underarm, then rub it over.
