The power of baking soda

So you probably know that baking soda is used for baking but did you know that there are other uses for baking soda? I didn't until I read the following.....

                                                           Baking soda uses

  •  Facial / skin smoother- mix 3 parts baking soda, 1 part water. Massage gently into skin with a circular motion.
  • Scribble eraser- sprinkle baking soda on a damp sponge and use it to remove crayon, pencil, and ink marks from painted surfaces. Wipe off residue.
  • Drain unclogger- pour 1 cup baking soda down the drain, chase with 1 cup vinegar. Let sit 5 minutes. Follow with a gallon of boiling water. (I have heard that you should only use this if your pipes are metal so please check before you try this)
  • Make your own bathroom scrub by mixing ¼ cup baking soda with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent. Add vinegar to give it a thick, creamy texture.  
  • Foot soak- 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a tub of warm water.
         If anyone has any more uses please feel free to share. I would love to hear your ideas.
