Traditionally known as sodium bicarbonate, plain old baking soda can be something of an unsung hero. Once revered by alchemists, it now forms the basis of some surprisingly useful household and hygiene items. It’s also one of the most effective and safest cleaning products around. Here are 6 products with baking soda you need to try today.

1. PeroxiCare Toothpaste

Baking soda and peroxide form a potent alliance against tartar and tooth-disfiguring bacteria in this proven toothpaste from Arm & Hammer. You’ve probably seen this toothpaste around – it’s time to give it a try.

3. Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent

Thanks to its saponification– or “soap-ifying” effect, sodium bicarbonate can help make for a highly effective detergent. These packets from Arm & Hammer include a unique micro crystal composition that gets out grease stains and leaves clothes looking, feeling (and smelling) fresh.

4. Clean Day Cleanser

This baking soda-based countertop and stovetop cleaner is an effective alternative to caustic powders. It’s non-toxic and bleach-free but gets the grease and dirt out so it’s great for food handling surfaces.

These unobtrusive, UFO-looking nursery fresheners harness the potent odor-controlling aspects of baking soda to keep household odors at bay. Keep one in the bathroom, one in the fridge and well, it’s useful for pretty much every (smelly) room in the house.
