Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)

For the record, I don’t spend a whole lot of time or thought on cleaning-things, but since I just did hydrogen peroxide, I’ll talk about baking soda now.

Baking soda is another things that’s very cheap, and is another great alternative to lots of things.

Some things I use it for:

1 – To brush my teeth – I’ve used it alone, or you can use it with your toothpaste. I eventually got around to finding a natural toothpaste without chemicals. Your toothpaste could say natural and have something like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in it still.

2 – To exfoliate, usually my face – It leaves your face fresh, but don’t leave it on for long, it’s drying!

3 – As a great deodorant – I use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Sometimes I need to put it on twice during the day, I’m kind of new at using it.  Anyways, it kills the bacteria, which causes the smell.  I love it, and it’s natural.  Antiperspirants are bad because, for one, it’s obviously not natural, and for two, sweating is a great way to get rid of toxins.  So most deodorants aren’t healthy.  Some people just put the baking soda under their arm and have had a lot of success.

4 – And of course, for baking!  It’s what makes the cookies raise 🙂

I also forgot two things about the hydrogen peroxide:

1 – If you have a problem with earwax build up (like I do) then you can lie on your side a put a few drops in.  Then after some time, maybe ten minutes, let it drip back out if it will come.  It feels weird and you’ll be able to hear it fizzing (a sound I find satisfying).  If you tilt your head on it’s side then it will plug your ear, but that’s okay, because you’ll eventaully let it drip out.  It definitely beats getting your ear irrigated (I know from experience).

2 – Another good deodorant.  If I use plain hydrogen peroxide then I have to spray it on twice.  That’s why I mix it with baking soda because the baking soda will stay there.  I put it all in a squirt bottle, which makes it so easy.

Good luck,  I hope I helped you!

fall_imageI love hydrogen peroxide!  Go get some right now.  I like it for a couple reasons:

1 – It’s cheap!  You get this big bottle for less than a $1.00

2 – It’s a great cleaner!

From my experience, hydrogen peroxide is found in the pharmacy.  We had it at our local grocery store, so I bet you’ll have it too.

One of the things that I use it for it to clean my teeth.  Almost every day, I swish it around in my mouth for about a minute and then spit it out, then brush my teeth (with the most natural toothpaste I could find, Spry).  It leaves your feeling so clean (because they are clean) and a lot of people think it makes them look whiter (like me).  Also, I always give my toothbrush a few squirts, because after sitting out, it has plenty of time to grow bacteria and other stuff on it.

Another thing that it can be used for is to clean things/surfaces in your house.  A natural way to clean a surface (without harmful chemicals and stuff) is to spray it with vinegar, then hydrogen peroxide.

Some people report having cured different kinds of diseases and stuff by consuming a few drops of FOOD GRADE 35% solution.  Google this, I haven’t tried it.  I think it’s like a cleanser or something.

It comes diluted to 3%  and usually has stabilizers in that you want to be careful you don’t ingest this kind.  This is the kind that you will probably find.  I haven’t found food grade yet.

Have fun with it, but be careful, it is a chemical!

Update: GOOD INFO FROM THE POSTERS, THEY KNOW A LOT! AND THIS IS PART OF FIGHT BACK FRIDAY’S @ FOOD RENEGADE (I always forget that part).
