Baking soda. I love baking soda. I know what you are thinking... "Ok, freak show, it's time to put down the hookah and walk away slowly." But seriously, baking soda is AWESOME! Not only is it beneficial for cooking, and can be used as toothpaste AND can eliminate even the nastiest of odors, but it's also a fantastic cleaning agent. The best part: it's stinkin CHEAP!

I use it a couple of times a week to deep clean my stainless steal sink and it can get that sink cleaner than any other product on the market. It picks up the nasty grime the other cleaners leave behind. I also use it to clean the bathtubs, sinks, stove top and even stubborn stains on the tile floors. It makes me feel so happy when I see everything so shiny and clean. And it can even be used to take crayon marks off the walls!

Here are some websites that show the many fabulous uses of baking soda:

Happy Anniversary!
Enjoy the baking soda. Not that I have ever had kids but if you soak bottle nipples in baking soda water you can get the weird smell out of them. Or so I have been told.
