I have been using **Arm & Hammer Baking Soda** for many years and most of the other members covered the uses of it.

I try to use environmentally safe items over chemicals and drain cleaner is on the top of that list.

I simply take the used boxes of Arm & Hammer Baking soda from the freezers and fridge and sprinkle them into all the drains in the house. I follow up by adding white vinegar until it starts to foam up, I let it do its thing for a few minutes and then flush the drains out with water.

This not only freshens the drains but it helps to **prevent the clogs without using chemicals**. What a great way to extend the use of the used up baking soda too!

I hope this tip was helpful to you.

I love baking soda for general, don't-have-to-worry-about-poisoning-the-kids type of cleaning. It works great for pet's messes or in the back of the fridge as the age old remedy for odd smells. But I don't see why I need to spend more just to get the good ole' arm-and-hammer logo on the cover of my baking soda. Baking soda is baking soda and the store brand is just fine for me. My favorite use is to sprinkle it over carpet, leave for a while and then vacuum up to freshen up carpet in bedrooms. I have also used it for polishing things and it works great as well but I would just assume to have the store brand as the name brand stuff and with the prices of things these days, I will save Arm & Hammer brand for the days when my store brand is out of stock.

The Best Cleaner Out There

By 

from USA

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

Arm & Hammer baking soda is so versatile. It is really amazing how many uses you can find for this. I always thought is was just for baking and deodorizing your fridge (which it's great at) but it can do so much more. Mix it with some water and vinegar for some serious cleaning power (or just a little vinegar for a thick paste- great for leaving on stains.) It cleans great! It's also great to use in making dish washer detergent and laundry detergent. Bake it up to turn it into baking soda, and mix both together with some peppermint soap for a killer laundry soap. Your clothes will be perfectly clean and the scent is heavenly. I have a big bag under my sink, and it's always worth it. So many uses in one bag! I haven't done it, but they even say you can use it in your hair! If you enjoy using simple products that you can be sure of the ingredient list, then you'll love figuring out all the uses for baking soda.

A must have at home!

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

I can't say that I am every without this baking soda. I have used different brands, but I usually stick with the Arm and Hammer Baking Soda. There are so many uses for this product. I like the way it is used as a powder and the substance it turns into when you add water to make it a paste. I always have one of these in my fridge and one of these in my freezer. It keeps odors from being strong and soaks them into the powder. I have also used this a few times in science experiments. Mix some baking soda and vinegar and voila an instant volcano. I pretty much have a few boxes around the house at all time. One reason is for baking, but the main reason is for cleaning. This is an amazing cleaner. It's natural and good for the environment. I don't feel like it's full of chemicals like the other cleaners out there. This and vinegar are great cleaning products to have on hand. Just don't mix them together or you may have a mini explosion ;). This works great to make a little paste with baking soda and water and scrub around sinks and bathtubs. It also works good in tile. You can also sprinkle some of this into carpets and let sit for a short while before vacuuming. You can also sprinkle in shoes to get rid of odors. Look it up on pinterest and you'll probably find a hundred uses for this product. Anything from teeth whitening to some cleaning idea. I would definitely say to keep one of these on hand at all times. It is a must have! I love it!

I use it for almost everything.

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

It's so funny because I've used it maybe three times when baking something from scratch but I actually use it for other things. There were a couple stains in the carpet of an apartment my husband and I were renting. It made the stain come out and look super clean and back to the color the carpet used to be. I used it yesterday because someone didn't throw out the garbage in the kitchen and the trash can smelled so disgusting so I pour some baking soda in the trash can and the smell faded away. I saw on pinterest that you can use it to whiten your teeth so I have been doing that. Another thing I found on pinterest is that you can use it to make the pores on your face smaller. So I was doing that for awhile. I stopped though because I got a little lazy but I use it sometimes to exfoliate my lips. I just try not to get it in my mouth though because it tastes so disgusting. Baking soda is so awesome. I can't believe something so simple can do so much.

A good mutli-purpose product

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda must be one of the most trusted products on the market and has been around for a very long time. Sure, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is great for cooking and baking, but it is also a great, very inexpensive product that can be used for many purposes. It keeps the refrigerator smelling fresh, but it is also a good general cleaner. It will remove scuff marks from floors, and if you have ever gotten an ink stain from food packaging on your kitchen counter, this baking soda will remove it. Yet, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is also gentle enough to use as a facial scrub. Just pour a small amount in the palm of your hand and add enough water to make a paste and it makes a very inexpensive yet effective facial scrub. This inexpensive baking soda can save one a lot of money considering the prices of facial, cleaning, and freshening products. I will always have this product on hand for multiple reasons.

Have used it for years

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

I love using Arm & Hammer baking soda. My mom used to use it all the time at home and now I use it, too. I really like it because you can use it for so many reasons. During all these years I have used it to bake, keep my refrigerator fresh, brush my teeth, wash fruits and vegetables, house cleaning, etc. I cleaned a rug once using it and it worked wonders. I never imagined it could be used for cleaning rugs, too! Arm & Hammer baking soda is one of those products that must be in every household. It isn't expensive and it does the job of several products put in one. Also, it is a lot safer than most cleaning products out there. It does not leave those smelly and dangerous fumes/smells. My mom always has a box of Arm & Hammer baking soda in her refrigerator. It keeps the refrigerator smelling clean. I use it in my refrigerator, too. It has also been around a long time which is a good sign. For me it shows it is a brand I can trust.

No household is complete without it

By

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

Arm and Hammer has been a mainstay in my home for as long as I have had a home. I was raised with it and continue to depend on it to this day for a wide variety of uses. This product is the perfect product as far as I am concerned. It is natural, inexpensive, nontoxic and versatile. For everything from acid indigestion to cleaning this product can't be beat. I bake with it and use it to absorb odors in my fridge. To clean my pots and sink I use it like a scouring powder. I put a small amount in my cooked beans to keep them from causing gas when ingested. I use it in my laundry to freshen and absorb odors. I add it to my toilet and let it sit in there overnight to clean and deodorize. You can brush your teeth with it and wash the dog with it. I sprinkle it on my carpets to absorb odors and run it down the garbage disposal to keep it smelling nice. Add to slow drain and top with vinegar to use as a mild drain cleaner.

Yes the list is endless and I now buy this product in the new large bags found in the laundry cleaning aisle. My only complaint is that you rarely see coupons for this product.

Arm and Hammer Baking Soda Miracle!

By 

from Georgia

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

I absolutely love Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and I use it for many purposes. I use it as a substitute for baking powder when I run out to bake cookies and cornbread. I even use Arm and Hammer Baking Soda to make sour cream dip for potato chips whenever I am having a get-together. Using Arm and Hammer Baking Soda, my cornbread and cookies come out beautifully with a nice, golden color and flavorful taste. I find that it has been the most essential ingredient in all of the deserts I have baked. I first started using this baking soda when my mom introduced it to me as a cleaning agent growing up. She would clean rusty pans, dirty countertops, the refrigerator and clothes with it. Although my mother introduced it to me, it was my grandmother who showed me how it bakes. One day, my sister and I wanted to bake cookies with our grandmother but she did not have any baking powder, so she used Arm and Hammer Baking Soda instead. She mixed in all the ingredients and the cookies came out great. Arm and Hammer Baking Soda added a nice, crunchy flavor to the cookies. Not only do I use this baking soda for baking but I also use it for teeth whitening and cleaning. I have found that baking soda whitens teeth a lot better than toothpaste. Before using this product, I had yellow stains on my teeth from years of drinking coffee, but after using this product, my teeth have gradually whitened. I recommend this product for baking, teeth whitening and cleaning. This product is one that has not only whitened my teeth and helped me to clean dirty countertops but also one that has added a tasty flavor to my most delicious deserts.

Excellent cat litter pan deodorizer

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

I have special uses for this product which are not related to baking. First is to keep it in the refrigerator to absorb unpleasant odors. I find one box to be effective for a month. But what it works even better for is as a cat litter pan deodorizer. After the pan is emptied and washed, before the new litter is added, I sprinkle a enough to coat the bottom of the pan. I smell a great difference between litter changes when I have added this baking soda than when i skip that step.

Multi use solutions

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

Now, here's a product that I have used and been familiar with for what seems like forever. When I was little, Arm & Hammer Baking Soda could be found in my refrigerator. I remember my dad explaining why me and my brother shouldn't paint each other with it and that it was used to keep the refrigerator smelling fresh. At that time, I must have been about 5 and my brother 7, it was best used for dying eyebrows white and making fake white mustaches. As an adult, Like my father, I have been buying Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for quite some time. I use it in recipes, to put it on my tooth brush to boost the cleaning power of tooth paste, a tablespoon in white clothes when I am washing them to make sure they stay white and extra fresh. I no longer use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for eye brows and mustaches. I have found that it is quite effective for many purposes though. It isn't all that pleasant to put on your tooth brush but I do it because it is so effective in keeping my teeth white and I have also found that it works amazingly well for white clothing items when used in hot water along with bleach. It boosts the whitening and deodorizing capability for the clothing. I love the stuff. It has been a big part of y life and I don't plan on stopping my use of it any time soon.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

By 

from USA, Indiana

Comments about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda:

Arm & Hammer is a multi-purpose product. I use this product to help keep my refrigerator fresh from food odors. I also use Arm & Hammer to keep my carpet smelling fresh and clean. I sprinkle the product onto my carpet and let sit for 15 minutes then I proceed to vacuum it up.

This is a great product and has many more uses that I have not mentioned above. I always keep a box on hand.
