I recently listed some great 2 Ingredient Beauty Products, but I’ve now topped that with 10 solutions using only 1 ingredient: Baking Soda.

1. Pour it down a drain to eliminate odors.

2. Sprinkle it to extinguish a kitchen fire.

3. Add 1/2 cup to the rinse cycle for fresher laundry. (why pay for those expensive foo foo detergents with it in there?)

4. Use it on a clean, wet sponge to scrub and freshen your kitchen microwave.

5. Try it to make stainless-steel pots shine.

6. Sprinkle in sports shoes and gym bags to deodorize them.

7. Freshen your dog by rubbing baking soda into his/her fur, then brushing it out. (You mean you can actually rub it in and brush it out without getting it all over you and everything else? and get him/her to sit still? Good luck!)

8. Get rid of tea stains in mugs with a mixture of 1/4 cup baking soda and a quart of warm water. (ok, so this is kinda 2 ingredients…)

9. Eliminate food odors in the dishwasher by sprinkling baking soda in the bottom, then running the dishwasher as usual.

10. Use it as a facial scrub-just moisten to make a paste. (let me know if you try this, it sounds a little too rough…)

Good Luck! Let me know if you try any of these!
