Baking soda is a powerful versatile ingredient that can be used for anything from cleaning to treating skin and health problems.
It is usually used for rising dough, but it can also treat and prevent numerous diseases and conditions and whiten clothes.
Besides this, people use baking soda as an effective odor absorber and a carpet freshener as well as an all-surface cleaner. However, baking soda can also be used for aesthetic purposes as well and can drastically improve your beauty.
Baking soda is an effective remedy against acne and pimples – just prepare a paste with some water and use in directly on the acne to get rid of it.
Take your favorite whitening toothpaste and read the contents on the label – there should be baking soda in it. When combined with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda can whiten your teeth, although it shouldn’t be used too often as it can damage your teeth enamel. Using it once a week should be sufficient.
3.FRESHENS THE BREATH
If you’re suffering from bad breath, you know that those mint drops do nothing. They only hide the underlying problem of halitosis, but baking soda can eliminate bad breath effectively and quickly. Put a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and mix until it dissolves, then gargle the solution to disinfect your throat and oral cavity and eliminate the bacteria. Repeat the process every other day for best results.
3.SOFTENS THE SKIN
If the skin on your hands and feet is dry, apply a mixture of baking soda, water and soap and massage nicely, then rinse with warm water. This will hydrate your skin and can also relieve the odor from your hands after preparing some meals.
