Otherwise known as sodium bicarbonate, baking soda is a white powder with a salty taste derived from the mineral natron. It’s been used since the 19th century for baking and is safe and nontoxic.

Today, baking soda offers a plethora of cleaning uses in and around our home. Below are 51 uses for baking soda. Got a favorite? Let us know in the comments below (and feel free to share a new idea)!

Love your list! Many of these uses really work in my health-based cleaning service. Will have to try the others! Here’s another I discovered, on-the-job.

How re-use a stainless steel pad, without it rusting: Rinse the pad clean when you’re done using it. Leave the pad soaking in water, w/ a tablespoon-or-so baking soda mixed in. Ready to use again, anytime! Of course, if the pad’s too shredded from scrubbing, toss it. Works w/ plain steel wool pads. Haven’t tried this w/ the detergent-treated pads, which I don’t buy anyway.

I’m offering pro baking soda and vinegar tips on my website, as a free signup gift. Including special tips for cleaning up oil or grease.

And I assume fleas and other pests don’t like baking soda. At least it won’t hurt to try!
