Out with the old and in with the freshly cleaned. A deep spring cleaning is just what your house needs after months of closed windows and winter clutter. Why fill your house with chemicals and toxins, when natural cleaners work great and cost a whole lot less? Baking soda is a miracle ingredient when it comes to cleaning house-hold products. From foul smells in the fridge to caked on grease in last night's dinner pans, baking soda is a cheap and effective alternative to harsh cleansers. Tackle odors with a little help from this inexpensive kitchen staple. Do your teenager's cleats leave his bedroom smelling like a locker room? Dump a little bit of baking soda in the smelly pair of shoes and leave overnight for a fresh step in the morning. Smells in the kitchen can be fixed in a pinch. Leave an open box of baking soda in your fridge to absorb any strong smells that may linger from yesterday's leftovers. Try a little in the bottom of your trash can too. Did your child get creative on your living room walls? While you find your little Picasso a coloring book to play with, get the crayon marks off of the wall with baking soda. A damp sponge sprinkled with baking soda will do the trick. ®
