Hi everyone. We all know the importance of using natural products for solutions to a number of concerns. Well, baking soda has been around for longer than most of us have been alive. Here are some all-natural ways to handle situations that traditionally use harmful chemicals:
Warm weather brings with it a slew of insects. Insect bites can happen before you even realize it. Did you know that baking soda is an ideal product to reduce swelling, itchiness, and redness? It is extremely low cost, odorless, and easy to use. Here’s what you do…
Get a small container
Put in about a teaspoon of baking soda.
Add a small amount of water.
Mix thoroughly until you get a thick paste consistency.
Spread on the insect bite.
Be sure to thoroughly cover the bite.
Let dry for a few minutes.
Put a bandaid on if you are planning on wearing clothing.
Store any leftover paste in an airtight container for future use.
I find this solution particularly beneficial since getting bit by a mosquito on my tkr leg. The itching was unbearable. This remedy was remarkably quick and convenient.
Coffee Pot or Carafe Cleaning
Handle those hard-to-clean carafes by sprinkling 1-2 teaspoons baking soda into them.
Add some water
I like adding enough water to fill the entire carafe
Let sit for whatever time amount you prefer
Pour out cleaning solution
Rinse container thoroughly with water
All Types of Odors
Baking soda is a wonderful odor killer.
Lightly sprinkle some over your garbage bag.
An open baking soda container put in the corner of your refrigerator will also cut down on
Sprinkle some baking soda into your shoes to help remove moisture and odor
These are just some suggestions I have used and found very helpful. They save tons of money at the store. Plus, they do not harm the atmosphere or your health.
