Baking soda can do a lot more than just sit in your kitchen.
It’s said to have antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that softly exfoliates away even the toughest calluses, and tackles more smells than what's in your crisper drawer.
Baking soda as whitening toothpaste
Turn baking soda into a paste by adding mixing it with three percent hydrogen peroxide and voila! You can also just dip your toothbrush with toothpaste into baking soda for an extra boost. You can also just damp it onto your palm. This is true and tested.
Baking soda as an overall body scrub
May it be on your face, arms and legs - baking soda (mix it with oatmeal or apple cider vinegar for best results) to make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking. It also cleans the tub and the drain – more bonuses! Don’t allow your skin to look dull and pale! Don’t let dead cells build up on the surface. Great news – you don’t need to buy a luxurious scrub.
Baking soda as a deodorant
Don’t want the aluminum that’s found in deodorants and antiperspirants? Baking soda might be just for you. Baking soda gently neutralizes acids and bases, so it eliminates odors. This simple paste makes an effective and simple natural deodorant that won’t stain your clothes.
Baking soda to calm troubled stomach
Okay, this may be no beauty product but it’s one of the most amazing uses of baking soda. Baking soda works by instantly neutralizing stomach acid, helping to relieve heartburn, indigestion and even ulcer pain. Just mix a teaspoon into a glass of warm water and drink it down.
Baking soda to clarify the hair
Mix baking soda to your regular shampoo. The baking soda will help remove impurities, leaving your hair lighter and full of volume. You can use it as a replacement to mousses, serums, sprays, and other products. Your hair will be shinier and more manageable – in the natural way!
Now that you know these things, you don't need to overdo and indulge on such expensive products! It’s beyond easy to find, it’s probably already in your kitchen! You can get the best without exposing yourself to harsh chemicals.
