Baking soda is a pretty amazing substance, whether you’re looking to green up your clean up, or save money on cleaning supplies. Oh yes, and it’s great for baking, too. It’s green, thrifty, and convenient. All of my favorite things!
To best take advantage of the thrifty qualities of baking soda, I like to buy in bulk. For the convenience aspect I keep my baking soda in a re-purposed Parmesan cheese container so I can tuck the bulk box away.
The principle of the container for baking soda is much the same as for Parmesan cheese. The spoon side of the lid works great for measuring for baking. The sprinkle side works well for use as a scouring powder or carpet freshening.
I could make a whole post about how wonderful baking soda is, but I’ll save myself some time. I’m all about efficiency! Check out:

I haven’t tried all of the uses, but I do have my favorites, which include
- Baking, of course
- Sprinkling on carpet before vacuuming for a deodorizer
- Scouring powder for dishes and other cleaning
- Deodorizer for closets- I just set some out in a tray
What is your favorite use for baking soda?
