10 amazing uses for baking soda


It’s time to pull out that lonely container of baking soda from the back of your cupboard and put it to some good use.

Unclog your sink
Got a clogged sink? No problem. Pour your baking soda down the drain and leave to sit for about an hour before pouring boiled vinegar on top.

Freshen up stinky carpets
Sprinkle a little baking soda over your carpets and leave to sit for about a half an hour. Vacuum it up and voila, a nice smelling room.

Brighten your whites
Add a cup of baking soda into your next wash for bright, fresh smelling clothes.

Clean your grout (the bit between your tiles)
Cleaning your grout can be impossible but not when you have the aid of a little baking soda. Rub a little onto it, spray with water and leave to sit for ten minutes. Scrub away with a toothbrush… an old toothbrush.
