Baking Soda is Awesome for Cleaning! 10 Cleaning Uses for Baking Soda (Clean My Space)

BLOG (with a detailed explanation of all tips mentioned):

We love hearing your stories, seeing your messy/clean pics and answering your questions!

I think we mention baking soda in about 50% of our videos. The stuff is incredible. It’s cheap, available in every grocery and drug store and has so many uses. It’s fascinating stuff! It’s great for three key functions from a cleaning standpoint: abrasion, deodorizing and whitening.

I could probably do a video on 10 uses for baking soda every week for the next 20 years and never once repeat myself…now do you understand how amazing this stuff really is?!

I also love it because it is safe enough to eat, in fact, it is found in many baking recipes. Therefore, I’m convinced that it is a household cleaning kit staple.

So in no particular order, here you go:

10 – remove scuff marks and crayon marks from a painted wall.

9 – battle the worst body odour with baking soda.

8 – clean and unclog a smelly sink drain.

7 – clean your tile grout. Our in-depth video on grout cleaning

6 – add abrasion to any cleaning product (especially a homemade one) – this puts other products like VIM and Comet to shame. Here’s our video on making your own cleaning products

5 – deodorize your kitty litter box.

4 – clean your non-self cleaning oven. You don’t need anything caustic!

3 – remove hair product build-up from your hair (hair clarifying treatment). Mind=blown.

2 – deodorize your carpets

1 – add to laundry to create an amazing laundry booster!

Have I convinced you to purchase an industrial drum of the stuff yet?

What are your favourite baking soda tips? Let me know if you try any of these and what your results were.

Do you have any ideas for a top 10 list? Let me know!

Thanks for watching 😀

How to Clean Dirty Grout with Homemade Cleaner | Ask This Old House


Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva explains how to clean dirty tile grout using only household supplies.

#ThisOldHouse #AskTOH
SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

Time: 4-5 hours

Cost: $0 and up

Skill Level: Beginner

Tools:
Stiff scrub brush []
Sponge []
(OPTIONAL) Grout knife []

Shopping List:
Dish soap []
Baking soda []
White vinegar []
Grout sealer []

Steps for Cleaning Grout with Homemade Cleaner:
1. Fill a cup with warm water.
2. Add the baking soda to the cup to give the mixture grit.
3. Add a few drops of the dish soap to the cup. Mix everything together.
4. Pour the vinegar along the edges of the grout. Don’t do too much at once or the floor will be really wet and more difficult to work on.
5. Pour the mixture on top of the vinegar along the grout lines.
6. Scrub the grout lines with the stiff scrub brush.
7. After scrubbing, let the mixture sit for about five minutes. Then, scrub it again with the brush.
8. Wipe off the excess vinegar mixture with a sponge. Allow the floor to dry. It could take about 45 minutes.
9. (OPTIONAL) If that doesn’t work, try gently scraping the top layer of the grout with a grout knife. They’re meant for removing grout, so do this carefully.
10. Apply the grout sealer along all the grout lines.
11. Allow the sealer to dry for 3-4 hours. Then apply a second coat.
12. Repeat this sealing process every year, especially for light colored grout.

Resources:
Tom’s homemade solution for cleaning grout included concentrated dish soap, baking soda, and white vinegar. These can found at most grocery and department stores.

Rather than using a toothbrush, Tom recommends using a cleaning brush [] with stronger bristles. They sell specialty grout cleaning brushes at most home centers in the Tile aisle. The one Tom used in the video is manufactured by QEP ().

If the stains are really deep in the grout, Tom recommends using a grout removal tool and lightly scraping it against the grout to remove the layer of grout that’s been stained. Do this cautiously. The grout removal tool Tom used [] in the video is also manufactured by QEP ( ).

Once the grout is clean, Tom suggests that sealing the grout once per year will prevent it from staining again. Tom used a TileLab Grout Sealer [], which is manufactured by Custom Building Products () and can be found at most home centers.
