You often hear about vinegar and baking soda being powerful cleaning agents. A few months ago, I shared 15 ways to clean with vinegar, and today, I’m sharing some amazing ways to clean with baking soda. The results are simply incredible!

We’ll start with one of my all-time favorite cleaning tips: How to Clean a Porcelain Sink. The results are simply jaw-dropping.
Cleaning the Oven Door
When I first tried this cleaning tip, I honestly didn’t think it was going to work. No way was baking soda alone, going to clean my grime-y oven door, but I was so wrong. Check out these results!
Polishing Tarnished Silverware
If you have tarnished silverware lying around your house, all you need is an aluminum pan, baking soda, and boiling water to polish them right up. I actually had a co-worker tell me that she tried this trick and was told by her mother that she might have over-polished the silver… It works that well!

I made this laundry detergent 18 months ago, and I just now ran out. Eighteen months! Not only did it last forever, it did a great job getting our clothing clean.

Garbage disposals can start to smell a little funky over time. These DIY Garbage Disposal Bombs are easy to make and freshen things up in no time.
