50 Amazing Uses for Baking Soda & Vinegar

What if I told you that you could easily replace most COMMON PERSONAL & HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS with just two very affordable, safe, effective, family & eco-friendly items??

The other day, I stopped into a drugstore for a toothbrush. As I walked up and down the aisles, I couldn’t help be completely blown away by the amount of chemical based & treated products we put on & in our bodies, homes, kids, pets, environments, etc., on a daily basis.

As a kid, I remember my grandmother was like some kind of wizard genius, with a quickly improvised remedy/fix for just about anything from toothaches, clogged drains to electrical fires. Often times, involving either baking soda or vinegar. Sometimes both.

This also left more room, in home supplies cabinets, for stockpiling jars of cocktail onions (be sure to reuse the pickling juice!) and pilfered little restaurant packets of sweetener. A forward thinking, thrifty and “resourceful” wizard genius, no less!!

Apart from its well-known culinary uses, as a leavening agent, for baked goods, etc., BAKING SODA (sodium bicarbonate) has a wide range of other applications! For example, baking soda is commonly used for its disinfectant, fungicidal, odor eliminating, acid neutralizing, surface scouring properties, and much more!

Similarly, aside from pickling, salad dressings & such, VINEGAR (dilute acetic acid) still remains a popular choice for its disinfectant, deodorant, antibacterial & preservative properties. As well, for it’s ability to break up grease, glues & resins, mineral deposits, and many other practical applications.

When baking soda is mixed with vinegar, the chemical reaction that occurs produces 1.) carbon dioxide gas, 2.) liquid water, 3.) sodium ions, and 4.) acetate ions. The escaping CO2 causes a fizzy, bubbling reaction often used for such things as clearing clogs, to children’s science projects..
