Sodium bicarbonate is used in cooking, making cosmetics and cleaning. There are several ways to use it in the house. Below is a few ways it can be used.
1. To eliminate odour from a rug or carpet, just sprinkle some sodium bicarbonate on the rug and allow it to sit for a few hours, brush away.
2. Sprinkle sodium bicarb around a room to keep it smelling naturally fresh. Sodium bicarbonate absorbs odours.
3. To keep shoes smelling fresh, fill a sock with sodium bicarb and leave it inside the shoes. The sodium bicarbonate will absorb the bad smell from the shoes and keep them fresh.
4. To get rid of strong smells, you can fill a cup with sodium bicarb and leave it sitting inside your fridge to get rid of smells of meat and fish for instance.
