    I like to use it to wash my face with. I pour a little in the palm of my hand and mix it with water to make a paste. Its a great exfoliater ! But, you can’t use it too often, it will dry your face out. The parmesan cheese container is GENIUS! I never thought of that!

    I stumbled across your website a couple of weeks ago. I am really enjoying it! I love all the frugalness, it really defines what I do myself. You have some great ideas and recipes! THANKS!

    At our house, we keep a box of baking soda in the frig, when the soda is done keeping the frig fresh, we dump it into our cheese shaker (been doing this for yrs!) and use the ‘used’ baking soda for cleaning. Works great, just don’t eat it. I love your website; linked in from my fave Dollar Stretcher.

    I started using an empty cheese shaker years ago to add baking soda to my cat litter box after I scooped it. Works great and is something reused instead of plastic sitting in a landfill for how long?

    Awesome! I have the exact same baking-soda-in-a-parm-container sitting on the back of my stove! :D

    I use baking soda mixed with water to wash my hair. Started 6 months ago, and I. WILL. NEVER. GO. BACK. TO. SHAMPOO. Couple that with the apple cider vinegar rinse – it’s really amazing what happens to your tresses when you stop weighing them down with soap scum and heavy conditioners. I’m totally hooked.

    Hmm… and I’m out of face wash. Coincidence?

  6. Kayla K says:

    So glad you found your way here! I love the reusing idea. Who knew baking soda could get any thriftier?

  7. Kayla K says:

    Good idea! I love commercials that advertise the “secret ingredient” of baking soda. Why not just use the original?

  8. Kayla K says:

    I’ve heard this before and have yet to try it. I could definitely use some volume. Hmmm….

    I reuse my baking soda from the refrigerator by cleaning my commode with it. One box will clean it 3-4 times for a fresh smelling bathroom. Just add and swish with the brush, then flush. No harsh chemicals going into the water and saving money too.

    I too use my parmesan cheese container for baking soda, but you can also use it to hold all sorts of stuff…sprinkles for those yummy cut-out cookies for the holidays, craft glitter, old buttons waiting to be re-purposed. Don’t forget to save your plastic peanut butter jars. So much better than the old glass ones!!

    I’ve been using my parmesan cheese container for holding my loose Splenda. It’s great for sprinkling splenda on cereal etc and also for spooning splenda into your coffee and tea. I’m going to save my current container to put my baking soda in. I just love money saving tips, thanks everyone!
