Simple Baking Soda Tip for Cleaning

Small lifestyle changes around the home can add up to big savings. If you have committed to saving money this year, go beyond just clipping coupons [1] and join me as I learn new frugal ways.

If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know of my love for Baking Soda and its many [2] uses [3].  I use it so much for household cleaning, I now buy it in bulk!

Cheap? Yes. Ease of use? Not so much.

So here is a little tip I learned for quick and easy cleaning with baking soda

Parmesan cheese.

Yes, you read that right.


Step 1: Clean out a used container of grated store-bought parmesan.

Step 2: Fill with baking soda.

Step 3: LABEL as baking soda (it’s harmless if eaten, but just in case ;) )

Step 4: Sprinkle on sinks, tubs and other areas just like you would Ajax or Comet.

Step 5: Add water (or even vinegar), scrub, then rinse.

There you have it. Safe, non-toxic cleaning power in a recycled container. And frugal to boot! You could add a bit of Borax to boost the cleaning power if you find that necessary.

You will be amazed by how well this works if you have never tried baking soda as a household cleaner!
