All the Uses for Baking Soda, the Skin Protectant

I was cleaning my kitchen sink pipes this morning with combos of baking soda, vinegar and boiling water.

Have you ever read the back of a baking soda box? It's uses are amazing. Here's the list (more or less quoting its own wording):

  • In the kitchen, use it for scratchless cleaning of stains and grease on appliances both big and small, and china plus pots and pans, even stainless steel.
  • In the bathroom, it safely lifts off dirt and soap scum on tub, shower, sink, toilets, counters, tile, grout and more.
  • In the rest of the house, it deoderizes the garbage pails, litter boxes, carpets, disposals and drains and can be run in your dishwasher in between uses.
  • In your beauty regime, add 1/2 c. to your tub for a refreshing bath or foot soak.
  • In your shampoo, add 1 teaspoon once a week for "fuller, more manageable hair."
  • In place of your exfoliant, after washing your face, apply in a circular motion a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water. Rinse for a fresh, clean face.

I loved the last two points as those were news to me.

But here was the biggest surprise. On the side panel chart labeled Drug Facts, see this:
Active ingredient: Sodium Bicarbonate 100%
Purpose: Skin Protectant [emphasis added]
Did you know that baking soda is a skin protectant? I did not.

So read those product boxes, folks.
