3. Prevent stomach ache
Because of its neutrality, baking soda is perfect for your stomach. If you have problems with acid indigestion or you just ate too much, a teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a cup of water can solve the problem. It is said that baking soda, when ingested, helps prevent cancer cells from reproducing. However, you should be careful not to ingest too much of it, because it can damage the mucous membranes in the stomach and make a mess. So, moderation is the keyword.
4. Help your hair
There is a trend these days, called the ‘no-poo’ hair care. It is a treatment of your hair without using shampoo or conditioner. Instead, people wash their hair with baking soda, which cleans off all styling product residue. It also washes off dead cells from the scalp, making it a perfect solution if you have dandruff. Of course, if you prefer to keep using your shampoo, you can just sprinkle a bit of baking soda onto the shampoo in your palm and wash hair normally. Baking soda will just boost the effects of the shampoo, making your hair cleaner and more manageable.
5. Say no to deodorant
Other than the fact that deodorants these days are full of heavy metals that your skin absorbs and stores, some of them aren’t even productive. Not only can baking soda neutralize all of the natural odors of your body, it will leave your skin soft and gentle. Also, this is a perfectly healthy recipe for mineralizing the skin, minimizing the odors and saving your skin from all the poisons present in regular deodorants.
1. Make a soft scrub
Baking soda is the perfect helping hand in cleaning the bathroom and kitchen surfaces. It doesn’t matter if you are cleaning tiles, the bathtub or the sink, it removes all of the filth and scale off of them. For regular cleaning, sprinkle a little baking soda onto a clean damp sponge and start scrubbing. You will be amazed with the power baking soda has. After you’ve finished, rinse thoroughly and let it dry. For a more thorough cleaning, you may want to sprinkle baking soda onto the surface and let it sit there for a while. Then, scour off. If you want to clean between tiles, again, just sprinkle baking soda, let it sit and scour off. It is easy, fast and gives instant results.
