Toothpaste - If you happen to be out of toothpaste, baking soda works wonders! Mind you, it may not taste as good as some toothpastes on the market, but it does its job. Baking soda cleans, refreshes, and deodorises your breath as well as removes the nasties from your teeth. If you don't have a toothbrush handy, the underside of your index finger will serve this purpose.

Shoe Deodoriser - Sprinkling some of this into those smelly running shoes and letting it sit overnight will remove most if not all of those funky odours. Just remember to shake out the shoe before putting your feet into them or the baking soda will become impacted onto your socks or stockings.

Dental Cleanser - No expensive denture cleanser on hand, well fear not if you happen to have baking soda in the house. Just sprinkle a teaspoon into a bowl of water, add in your dentures and let them sit overnight. Brush and rinse your dentures in the morning as usual. Pop them into your mouth, and presto, you now have a fresh, clean, odour-free mouth!

Clean the Oven - Baking soda mixed into a paste and applied to a cold oven is an effective, chemical-free way to clean your oven. Mix the paste and spread it around in your oven, then let it rest to penetrate the grease and grime build up. Use a toothbrush or other soft bristled brush to scrub the surface. Rinse with water.
