Baking Powder Uses

Everybody knows how useful Baking SODA is. Did you know that Baking POWDER can be just as useful in keeping your home clean?

Baking soda is actually the primary component IN baking powder, so it's no surprise that pretty much anything you can do with baking soda, you can do with baking powder. If you get confused between the two, baking powder usually comes in a can. Baking soda usually comes in a box.

Since most people use far more baking soda when cooking, they often end up with leftover baking powder that has expired. Here are some great uses for your old baking powder.

Carpet Freshener
One of my favorite uses, it really does well with odors. Mix in a drop or two of your favorite fragrance, and sprinkle on the carpet. Let sit for 10 minutes before vaccuuming up.

Scrubbing Compound
Sprinkle the baking powder onto your counter, sink or tub. Use a wet sponge to scrub out the stains, and then rinse clean.


Dishwasher / Washing Machine

Sprinkle some baking powder into your washing machine or dishwasher to add an extra boost of cleaning power.

That's a nice carpet cleaning tip right there! So that's why those Orange County carpet cleaning guys used baking soda before vacuuming our carpet. Those experts of carpet cleaning in Orange County, CA really know what they're doing. I've been wondering why so I did my research. Thanks to you, I found my answer!

carpet cleaning Try to choose a company which covers your area, because if you hire one which is from the other part of the city, the service will be more expensive.
Watch out not to be cheated with the price, too. When you hire a carpet cleaning company, ask for some kind of a contract, in which the price is included. carpet cleaning London

I always use baking soda to clean my fridge and I also know a friend who cleans her carpet with baking soda instead of booking a carpet cleaning Grays.

To rid the yellowing from white appliances: Mix together 1/2 cup bleach, 1/4 cup baking soda and 4 cups of warm water. Apply with a sponge and let set for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Companies that use a harmful parts better, degreaser, general cleaning solution, etc. usually view air flow as an efficient protection against contact with Dangerous Air Contaminants (HAPs). But research has shown that air flow systems are not an efficient means of avoiding harmful visibility in the direct area of harmful substance application.Palm beach drapery cleaning
