Using Baking Soda Can Enhance Your Health and The Way You Look. Here is How to To Do That 

Sodium bicarbonate, commonly known as baking soda, can do some major things! Its great powers come from its pH, which stands for “potential (or power) of hydrogen” to make something either an acid or a base. This ingredient is extremely versatile, and it has number of uses. Here are some of them:

Personal care uses:

Make toothpaste, freshen your mouth, soak oral appliance, use as facial scrub, make a hand cleanser, skip harsh deodorant, help your hair, clean your brushes and combs, make a bath soak, soak your feet, and more.

Cleaning with baking soda:

Handwash dishes, freshen sponges, clean the microwave, clean furniture, clean floors, clean the oven, polish silver flatware, clean baby clothes, remove oil and stains, clean batteries, and more.

Deodorizing with baking soda:

Deodorize your fridge, deodorize your cutting board, deodorize recyclables, deodorize drains, deodorize lunch boxes, remove odor from carpets, deodorize pet bedding, deodorize shoes, freshen linens, etc.

Baking soda has been used since ancient times as a deodorizer, soother, and cleanser. Baking soda uses range from basic daily hygiene (think toothpaste and shampoo) to baking soda health benefits.”

To wash clothes Adding ½ cup of baking soda to the rinse cycle will freshen up clothes — without all the chemicals in other products.

As a natural cleaner A mixture of baking soda and water can be used as an effective, nonabrasive cleaner. One use: to wipe away old food residues from the inside of a refrigerator. You can also sprinkle baking soda down the drain with hot water to freshen up your pipes, clean your tubs, sinks, and shower curtain, and buff out scuff marks from floors. Oh, and don’t forget, it’s a top-notch deodorizer. Sprinkle baking soda on a carpet, let it sit, and vacuum it — and the offending stink — up.

Some of the most common uses of baking soda for health include:

Care for bug bites

You know that annoying itchiness from bug bites? Rather than reach for a hydrocortisone cream, you can find relief by applying a paste of baking soda (mix baking soda with a little water until you get the right consistency) to the bite several times a day, suggests the Mayo Clinic.

To care for your teeth during pregnancy Morning sickness happens.

Along with the discomfort of queasiness, the stomach acid that goes along with vomiting can wear away at your tooth enamel. If you’re saddled with occasional or regular vomiting, rinse your mouth with 1 tsp of baking soda mixed with water. You can also do this when sickness (like food poisoning) is causing vomiting.

Treat nail infections

If you have a mild nail infection, you may consider a baking soda and water soak, as baking soda has antifungal properties.

Ease discomfort during cancer treatment

Swishing your mouth with a combination of 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of salt, and 1 quart of water can help ease any throat discomfort caused by radiation or chemotherapy. This mixture may also help prevent mouth sores from getting infected. Just be sure to gargle the solution — don’t swallow it, the American Cancer Society points out.
