For the Love of Baking Soda


If there’s one staple in our home that I am never, ever, without, it’s Baking Soda.

Since most of you tuning in today for Tasty Tuesday certainly have a fondness for Baking Soda in all things sweets, treats and baked goods, I know you understand why it’s a staple.

We love our easy,homemade baking powder biscuits [3] that have been a fun “Cooking with the Kids” recipe for years.

Yet honestly, baking soda is a staple in our home for much, much more than baking. It’s a staple for nearly every single cleaning task that occurs in our home. It’s frugal, natural, it has no harsh odors and just plain works wonders.

I guess I assumed that everyone knew that by adding just a tad of water to baking soda and making a paste out of it, it becomes a “miracle cleaner,” but I found that not to be true.

Last week, I had an orientation at our home for the home school group that I direct. I was serving a bright pink punch (with way too much dye) and it was slowing dripping out of the dispenser causing stains on my white counter. As I wiped it up, a friend knew that it was bad news for my counter. I had no fear. Baking soda came to the rescue and it got the stain right out. She could not believe that just that little paste could conquer such a large stain.

That’s just one example of how we use baking soda on a daily basis. I was asked to switch out my old products for Baking Soda. Well, that can’t happen because I buy baking soda in bulk and so there’s nothing to change out. I wouldn’t be without it, and in the next post, I’ll share the many uses that I have found for this miracle product over the years.

I’m going to put together a list of the TOP 50 ways to use baking soda and I can’t wait to hear about your favorite uses.>
