Clean Your Washing Machine With Baking Soda

The more kids you have, the dirtier your washing machine is going to become. I have this problem, but I fix it with a little bit of baking soda and some vinegar. Simply mix one cup of baking soda with one cup of white vinegar and run it through your washing machine by itself. It will clean out all of the nastiness for you.

Clean Your Coffee Pot With Baking Soda

I pride myself on having a clean coffee pot. Add 1/4th cup of baking soda to some warm water in the coffee pot and just let it sit overnight. In the morning, you’ll be able to easily wipe off the stains on the pot.

Clean Your Grill with Baking Soda

And no, I don’t mean your teeth, but you can do that, too! Your grill can be absolutely disgusting with all of the grease and gunk that gets stuck on it. Simply make some baking soda paste simply by mixing some baking soda with warm water and you’ll easily be able to clean your grill with it.

Clean a Burned Pan

Having burned pans doesn’t look good and they’re also very hard to clean. If you want to clean one with ease, you can cover the bottom of the pan with a mixture of baking soda and water. Allow this mixture to boil on the pan for no less than 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, you’ll be able to clean the pan with ease.

Clean Chrome with Baking Soda

Do you have any spots in your home that are chrome? If so, you can easily clean the chrome with baking soda. Simply add a bit of baking soda (nothing else) to a dry rag and then wipe the chrome with it. The chrome will shine like never before.
