Get Your Home Ready For Guests With Arm & Hammer Baking Soda This Holiday Season

Since becoming a mom, I've been much more careful about the types of cleaners I use around the house. I don't like having toxic liquids and products in our cabinets because, as we all know, kids are very curious, and I don't want them getting their little hands on them. That's why I started using natural products to help clean our home!

I remember my mom using Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to keep our refrigerator fresh smelling, but had no idea until a few years ago that there were many other uses for which we could use it! Using Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is an inexpensive way to spruce up your home and clean it wonderfully!
What are some great ways to use  Arm & Hammer Baking Soda? Here are some tips!

1. Clean your food area and cooking utensils! Sprinkling a bit of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda on a wet sponge or cloth and wiping the area is an easy and perfect way to clean the area and make sure it is safe to cook and/or eat food!
2. Freshen up your furniture. Just sprinkle some Arm & Hammer Baking Soda onto the upholstery, wait about 15 minutes and vacuum! This is a great way to get rid of odors.
3.  Brush your teeth! This is a great way to clean teeth, whiten teeth and it's also very inexpensive. I've tried this before and it works great. Just put some Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in your palm, dip your toothbrush into it and then brush those pearly whites. Simple!

We will be entertaining guests this holiday season, so I have been slowly getting things ready for the family to arrive. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda has been an amazing help with cleaning. Until just recently, we were hosting a cat family (a mama cat and her 4 babies). Unfortunately, accidents did occasionally occur on our porch, so we had to deodorize the area somehow. At first I tried other ways to deodorize, but NOTHING worked to get the smell out like Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. It was amazing because after trying several other products, all I did was sprinkle on the baking soda, let it sit and then scrub it up with some water. The smell was instantly removed! If you have any indoor pets or those prone to accidents on your porch, you definitely need to keep some Arm & Hammer Baking Soda stocked.

Another way I often use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is for washing Liam's stinky cloth diapers. Phew! Some of his All-In-One diapers started getting smelly and I was close to throwing them away. Nothing seemed to work to completely remove the smell. Then I read about using Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, so I decided to give it a try since we had some in the pantry. I just added Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to some hot water in my washing machine, let the diapers soak for about 15-30 minutes and then I completed the wash. This is the perfect way to freshen up stinking diapers AND to get them looking white again. I was completely amazed!

Have you tried Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to help clean your home? How do you use it?  It's such an inexpensive way to clean, so if you are on a budget like we are, this is the way to clean! Give it a try and let me know what you think! I'd love to hear what you have to say.

I wrote this review while participating in an Blog Tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Arm & Hammer and received product samples to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
