11 Surprising Ways A Pinch Of Baking Soda Can Change Your Life

We bet you have at least one box at home - and you'd be surprised at just how many ways you can use it.

That magical box? Baking soda!

Consider the following eleven great uses for baking soda:


1. Enhanced Sports Performance: Distance runners have long engaged in a practice known as “soda doping” — or taking baking soda capsules — before races to enhance performance, a measure that’s thought to work similarly to carbohydrate loading.

2. Foot Soak and Exfoliator: Add three tablespoons of baking soda to a tub of warm water for an invigorating foot soak.

3. Hand Cleanser: Mix three parts baking soda with one part of water to make a natural hand cleanser that will scrub away dirt and neutralize odors.

4. Heartburn, Indigestion, and Ulcer Pain: Baking soda works by immediately neutralizing stomach acid, helping to relieve heartburn, indigestion and even ulcer pain. Dosing is typically ½ teaspoon fully dissolved in a half a glass of water, taken every two hours (do not take more than seven ½ teaspoons in 24 hours, or three ½ teaspoons if you’re over 60). This should only be used as an occasional (not chronic) treatment, however, and be careful not to consume excessive amounts, which can cause serious electrolyte and acid/base imbalances.

5. Insect Bites and Poison Ivy: Apply a paste made of baking soda and water to insect bites to help relieve itching. You can also try rubbing the dry powder onto your skin.

6. Natural Deodorant: Try a pinch of baking soda mixed with water. This simple paste makes an effective and simple natural deodorant. You can also simply brush some dry baking soda under your arms.

7. Relaxing Soak: Baking soda and apple cider make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking. It also cleans the tub and the drain, as a bonus!

8. Splinter Removal: Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a small glass of water, then soak the affected area twice a day. Many splinters will come out on their own after a couple of days using this treatment.

9. Sunburn Remedy: Add ½ cup of baking soda to lukewarm bathwater, then soak in the tub for natural relief. When you get out, let your skin air dry, rather than toweling off the excess baking soda, for extra relief.

10. Teeth Whitener: For a natural way to whiten your teeth, crush one ripe strawberry and mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Spread the mixture onto your teeth and leave on for five minutes. Then brush your teeth and rinse. This method should be used no more than once a week, as excessive use could potentially damage your tooth enamel.

11. Tooth and Gum Paste: One review of data from five controlled clinical studies found that toothpaste containing baking soda “enhanced plaque removal effectiveness of tooth brushing to a significantly greater extent” than brushing with a non-baking soda toothpaste. For an incredibly effective tooth and gum paste, use a mixture of six parts of baking soda to one part of sea salt.

  2. Hello all,A short comment from the Netherlands. My name is Richard 46 year old, fantastic live till december 2013, now livibg in hell and Pain
    I am currently on my two weeks of treatment for prostatitis epididimytis calcification and Herpes 2. I had a lump on my testicle,Herpes or swollen prostate, and shooting pains on my whole right side (which urologists in the US said was unrelated LOL). Anyways it took me a year to finally make the decision to come here and get treated and needless the say the Doctor Sandy saved my life. If you have Herpes or swollen prostate , you definitely have an infection. Oral antibiotics do nothing and neither does diet. If your first round of antibiotics failed the prostate and the Herpes starts forming calcification around the infection and this needs to be addressed as well. This is the Only clinic in the world that has Dr.Sandy herbal medicine to address and break up the calcification. You need to be here to use the herbal medicine 14 to 16 day depending on your Herpes or swollen prostate to become calcification . I am only writing this because I had read some of the comments here and want to state the truth. If your prostate symptoms or your Herpes 2 have not resolved after first course of treatment you will need to have this treatment of Dr.Sandy Herpes Medicine, please don’t use doctors that go through the rectum it is dangerous and will spread bacteria and the infection will only come back if the calcification is not treated as well. I will leave my email and Dr.Sandy email and whatsapp number so will respond as best as I can. I am not disclosing the name of the clinic publicly but will do so by email or phone. Please don’t hesitate as I want to help as many people as I can because I’ve been through the suffering. Good luck to you all on this journey and if you are looking for a cure email me or Dr.Sandy asap. dr.sandyspelltemple@gmail.com dr.sandyspelltemple@hotmail.com dr.sandyspelltemple@yahoo.com OR call Whats App Number +2349031726182 https://web.facebook.com/Drsandy-SPELL-HOME-2-226270587825982/
    SIR GOD WILL BLESS YOU FOR ALL THE HELP ON ME AND MY FAMILY, THANK YOU SIR.......
