Baking soda has been used for generations to ensure your refrigerator stays smelling fresh and clean. But the possibilities for baking soda go beyond the fridge. Try any of these tips and see how baking soda can make your life easier.


With only a few simple ingredients, you can use baking soda to make your own natural toothpaste! Combine baking soda, coconut oil and peppermint oil in a jar and you’re ready to go!


Instead of wasting money on shampoo, make your own! All you need is baking soda, a few drops of castile soap, and water in a plastic cup! Pour the concoction over your head in the shower and shampoo regularly. Because baking soda neutralizes pH, your scalp will eventually become less oily overtime, which means cleaner hair for longer. Ditch your old shampoo- your hair and your wallet will not miss it

Save Your Brushes and Combs

After a while, your combs and brushes start to build up oil from your hair. Rather than throwing them away, simply clean them! Dissolve a teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of water, soak for 30 minutes,  rinse and dry! This way you can keep your products longer and stronger.
