Deodorizer:  Keep a box open in your fridge and you will never have to worry about that left over food odor.

Cleaning your kitchen and bathroom:  Range hoods, microwaves, counter tops, grout and tile, can all benefit from a good baking soda scrub.

Clean your greasy pans and stained containers:  You can easily refresh your old dingy plastic containers with baking soda.  Also let your greasy pans and pots soak with warm water and baking soda before giving them a good scrub.

De-stink those pet beds:  Sprinkle a little baking soda over your dog’s bed and then vacuum it up.

Freshen up musty upholstery and rugs:  Just like with the dog beds, sprinkle baking soda on couch cushions, carpet, rugs, etc.  Wait about 10 minutes and then vacuum it up.
