Place baking soda in a clean, empty plastic spice jar. Sprinkle on carpets, pillows and fabric furnishings before vaccuming for freshness. Store uncapped in your icebox or freezer to absorb odors. Later, use the baking soda as a gentle cleanser for countertops or your microwave.
Last year i read an article about how shampoo leaves a residue on your hair and it advised washing your hair with baking soda. i started doing that every day and by the end of a month, my hair was no longer a dry, brittle, frizzy mess. and it isn't greasy either! my hair is shiny and curly now!
of course, you have to have curly hair to begin with! i dissolve 1-2 tbsp in warm water and use it just like i would shampoo. you can buy a 5 lb bag of it at costco for 6 bucks. think of all the cash you will save on shampoo! and you will have great hair too!
