Get Gorgeous with Baking Soda

April 10, 2013

Baking soda is one of the most inexpensive, accessible, and versatile products you can have in your pantry.  Besides using it to whip up tasty baked treats or eliminating odors in your fridge, baking soda also makes a fabulous addition to your beauty regime and costs mere pennies per use!

1. Instead of spending money on a separate clarifying shampoo, mix a pinch of baking soda (a little less than a teaspoon) with your favorite shampoo to remove product buildup.
2. Make a paste of water and baking soda and use as a facial mask.
3. Use baking soda as a face and body scrub by mixing it with water and a few drops of essential oil until it's your desired consistency.
4. Get softer skin by adding a cup of baking soda to your bath.
5. Mix a small amount with a few drops of peroxide to make a toothpaste that'll whiten your teeth and freshen your breath.
6. Dissolve 4 tablespoons of baking soda in about 1 liter of warm water and soak brushes and combs for a few minutes for a thorough, build-up removing clean.
7. Apply to a nail brush and give finger and toe nails a good scrub to clean and brighten nails, get rid of discoloration caused by nail polish, and soften cuticles.
8. Add baking soda to a foot soak to help soften and deodorize your little piggies.
9. Dissolve 1 teaspoon in a small glass of water and use as a mouthwash. 
10. And if you wake up and realize you forgot to stop at Target for deodorant, simply use your fingers or a powder puff to dust baking soda on your underarms for a natural deodorant.

  1. Okay? I never knew u could use baking soda as a deordorant. Baking soda and coconut oil both have got to be the most "multi-talented" products in our cupboard.

  2. I am going to buy a box of baking soda.....right now!

  3. This came right on time! I actually have a box of baking soda in my bathroom that I use on my stubborn pimples. I also use it as my toothpaste and a facial scrub with my facial soap. I'm thinking my next use will be for my brushes and combs. Thanks for the post!

  4. Oh, toothpaste is a good one!
