There’s no need to hire a maid to clean out your home when it’s time to spring clean (okay, maybe there is, but if you’re like me you won’t so….). Baking soda is a natural, common sense way to clean up small or nasty messes. And at about $1.00 for a one pound box, well it makes common cents in this economy too! Arm & Hammer Baking Soda has some tips for spring cleaning your home.

In the Living Room

 Freshen and Deodorize Carpets

A sprinkle a day keeps the odors away. Sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on carpets and let sit for 15 minutes before vacuuming.

In the Bathroom

Deodorizing Wastebasket

Keep bathroom wastebaskets fresh-smelling with just a sprinkle of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Apply regularly as you add to the container, or when you empty it, wash the container with a solution of 1 cup of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda per 1 gallon of water.

On the Patio

De-Grime the Grill

Grungy grills aren’t a welcome part of any backyard barbecue. Clean them up by sprinkling dry ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a damp brush, scrub as needed and rinse clean. For tough, greasy stains, scrub with a wire brush and a baking soda paste (3 parts baking soda to one part warm water) and rinse thoroughly.

In the Kitchen

Food Safe Surface Cleaning

Clean your food prep area and tools with natural, food safe ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda instead of harsh cleaners. Sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda onto a clean damp sponge or cloth and wipe clean, rinse thoroughly, and then dry. Great for counters, stainless steel sinks, cutting boards, microwaves, lunch boxes, wooden spoons, oven tops, range hoods and more.

 Drains and Garbage Disposals

What goes down sometimes comes back up. To deodorize your drains and disposal, and keep lingering odors from resurfacing, pour ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda down the drain while running warm tap water. Baking Soda will neutralize both acid and basic odors for a fresh drain.

 Manage Microwave Mess

Who wants popcorn that tastes like a science experiment? ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a fresh, damp sponge gently cleans inside and outside the microwave and never leaves a harsh chemical smell. Rinse well with water.

In the Dining Room

Remove Scuff Marks on Floors

Remove dirt and grime (without unwanted scratch marks!) from no-wax and tile floors using 1/2 cup ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a bucket of warm water – mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor. For unsightly scuff marks, use ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a clean damp sponge, then rinse. Great for high-traffic areas and after dinner parties too!

In the Laundry Room

Musty Towels

Get towels clothesline fresh…right from the wash! Add 1/2 cup ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to the rinse cycle.
