Baking soda is one of those wonderful things that can be used in a variety of ways. For example, you may have heard that it can remove odors from a fridge, or already clean a counter. You might not know how many different ways it can help you to keep your body cleaner, though.
Starting at the top, baking soda is great for cleaning your teeth. Many toothpastes contain it. Also, you can mix it with water and use it as a mouth rinse, instead of using mouth wash. It cleans, it deodorizes and it leaves a fresh taste in your mouth.
Next, try sprinkling some dry baking soda in your clothes, especially if you tend to sweat a lot. It absorbs moisture and odors. It also kills bacteria and, again, will leave your body feeling fresh.
Then there’s foot odor. Some people have foot odor that is worse than others. If yours is bad, use some baking soda in your socks and shoes. You’ll notice a big change in a hurry.
Finally, there’s bath time. Everyone loves to take a bath to relax. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. However, baths don’t get people clean because the water has nowhere to go, so all of the dirt just moves around. It doesn’t rinse away.
If you want to take baths and get clean, add some of the magical substance to your bath water. It kills bacteria and neutralizes odors. Of course, it’s also a good idea to take a short shower after any bath and baking soda isn’t a replace soap and shampoo. It’s just a way to give your body an additional cleaning raise.
