bakingsodalove

lately i'm discovering more and more reasons to love you..


you keep my stainless steel pots looking.... stainless.
you clean my bathroom counter, without putting fumes in my face. 
you help my bug bites stop itching. (yes, i have bug bites in october.)
you keep my fridge from reeking.
you make my pancakes light and fluffy.
you fight the hard water stains in the kitchen sink.
you exfoliate. (really, you are the perfect facial scrub.)
you scrape my cast iron skillet clean.
you polish the faucets until they shine.
you make my flowers last longer.
you help the sourdough not be too sour.
you can clean anything. toilets, tubs, sinks, shoes, the fridge, my retainer.. 
you can be used as my deodorant? i need to try this. 
and you are super cheap. 


thanks for everything. 
you are my favorite product in the whole house.

Dear Baking Soda,

You and your friends raw honey and apple cider vinegar are giving me glowing beautiful skin.

I might possibly be more in love with you than Summer is!

Love,
Toi

I've tried making deodorant using baking soda & coconut oil- it worked pretty well for a home made concoction :) the only thing is that I still got a little sweaty (because I live in the tropics and it does get pretty humid!), and it stained some of my dark shirts a little (but nothing that a regular wash couldn't remove). Yay baking soda! :)

Christina said...

I <3 baking soda too. :D

How do you use it to make flowers last longer? That's one that I had never heard of before...

Ooh, the sourdough tidbit is new to me. Must try!

riss said...

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
