Baking soda uses for household chores is the future of cleaning. Do you have a nasty odor, stuck-on grease, or just an all-around seemingly impossible cleaning job that you have been dreading to begin? Stress no more with a fun, and natural, way to clean all that gunk, in no time. Certain jobs require you to get down and dirty. For us at Daily Mom, that means using baking soda as a paste. So pull out that Arm & Hammer and take advantage of these baking soda uses.
Why A Paste?
Allowing the paste to dry on a stain, or odor gives the paste more time to neutralize and permeates deep into the area. What’s more? Making baking soda paste makes for a fun activity and science experiment for both you and your kids.
- Mix baking soda with water to form a paste
- Spread the paste on your stain and allow to fully dry
- Spray the dry baking soda with vinegar (it will sizzle)
- Use a natural sponge or steel wool to scrub the stain, until it comes off
- Wipe clean with plenty of water with a natural fiber towel

Baking Soda Uses For Household Chores
Kitty Litter Box
It is no surprise. Kitty litter boxes smell. But have you noticed that there is a weird odor on the floor around the litter box? If your litter box is located on tile, or linoleum, use this paste around the box to neutralize the odor. Cat urine has a very strong ammonia smell and using this trick regularly can really help cut back on the prevalence of the odor. And if your litter box is located on the carpet? Well, good luck with that.

Base Of The Toilet
Do you share a household with a boy, or man, who may not always have the best aim? Use this paste around the base of the toilet. It will leave your toilet sparkling clean, while also removing any lingering odors left from you-know-who.
Inside The Stove
Let’s face it, commercial chemical oven cleaners are undeniably toxic. If you do not feel like dressing yourself in HAZMAT gear to clean your oven, consider giving this baking soda paste a try.
Before you start, you will want to scrape off any “solid” food or gunk stuck to the bottom. Use an old spatula to scrape anything up and then generously apply the baking soda paste. Wait for the paste to dry and then use steel wool, or the rough side of a sponge, to scrub up the paste. Try scrubbing in circular motions after spritzing with vinegar. Be aware that vinegar on your baking soda paste might make the concoction to sizzle.
