Baking Soda the Best Darn Odor Remover Ever!!!


Some of you probably know by now that I have an overly curious two year old who is obsessed with physics. Ike likes to dump everything out. I mean EVERYTHING! Maybe he is going to be the next Issac Newton.

I had a big jar of minced garlic in the fridge. I really hate cutting up garlic. Ike dumped the jar all of over the carpet. Juice and all and very smelly! Todd tried to clean it up that night. The smell was still there strong in the morning. I sprinkled baking soda all over the floor and in about 15 minutes the smell was gone.

This is another wonderful reason I love baking soda. I am also in the process of thinking about going sham'poo' free and using only baking soda in my hair. I'll let you know how that goes.

I LOVE baking soda! :) Have you ever used it when you brush your teeth? It helps whiten them -- I like using it. :)

Baking soda works great as a toothpaste. You can add a little essential oils and make it minty :) I love it because there are no nasty chemicals in it.
