Emma and I spent the morning cleaning house and doing laundry yesterday. Friday is our new cleaning day, which means coming into the weekend with everything fresh and clean. I like it so much better than doing it all on Mondays.
And as we cleaned I realized that we have a cleaning theme--baking soda.
It's an ingredient in the laundry detergent I make. Here's a list of a bunch of different recipes.
I sprinkle it in the sinks, tubs, and toilets before spraying with the cleaner I use.
I use it when washing dishes that are especially hard to clean.
I even wash my hair with it (I have a love affair with hairspray and baking soda plus shampoo removes all the buildup) and my face (added to the cleanser I use it exfoliates gently). And from time to time I brush my teeth with it.
And let's not forget to mention how inexpensive baking soda is--much cheaper than most cleaning products out there.
Do you have a secret cleaning weapon? A cheap product you can't live without? Do share!
