To remove grease more easily from the cooker or back splash put a little baking soda on a damp sponge or cloth and watch the grease vanish.

If your carpets or rugs smell a little stale then sprinkle some baking soda over them before going to bed and leave overnight before vacuuming.

Baking soda is excellent when it comes to making baths and sinks sparkle without the need for scrubbing.

Pour a quarter of a cup of baking powder down your drain quickly followed by 1 cup of vinegar, the two will react together and when you wash it down with hot water it keeps the pipes clean and clear.

Putting some baking soda in a burnt pan while the pan is still hot and allowing it to soak in hot water will work wonders in helping to remove the burnt mess from the bottom.

If you have odours in your fridge open a tub of baking soda and place it in the fridge with the lid off, stir the contents of the soda every once in a while to help remove the odours and leave your fridge smelling clean. The same works for your microwave but put the soda in some water and switch the microwave on for a minute or so.
