The Perfect Omelet Making the perfect omelet may seem like a simple task, but every chef knows that the perfect omelet takes good technique and some trade secrets. One of these secrets is adding half a teaspoon of baking soda to help create the fluffy texture that we all love. Wow your guests next time you have them over for brunch with this little trick.
Shoe Cleaner There is nothing worse than removing your shoes only to get a huge whiff of unpleasant odor wafting around. The solution is quite simple. place a tablespoon of baking soda in a cloth, twist the cloth around the baking soda in order to avoid it spilling everywhere, and place it in your shoe. Let it sit for a few days and absorb all the smells, leaving your shoes smell-free.
Pot And Pan Cleaner Good quality pots and pans can last your for many years, but it is important to maintain them well. We’ve all had a moment when we’ve accidentally scorched a pan, leaving black marks that seem impossible to get rid of. Once again, using baking soda will help. Boil some with water and use that formula to clean the stains away.
Bug Bite Treatment You might not know this, but most bug bite creams that are sold at pharmacies actually contain sodium bicarbonate, which happens to be baking soda. Why not mix your own instead of spending extra money on creams? Apply a paste of baking soda and water on affected areas. It’s not recommended to do this every day, but it is fine to spot treat bug bites every once in a while.
Sparkling Smile Brushing your teeth twice a day is quite important, as any dentist will let you know. However, how often do you actually clean your toothbrush? Most people neglect doing this, but it’s really quite simple to do. Soak your toothbrush in a solution of baking soda, vinegar, and hot water for half an hour and kill any unwanted germs that may be lingering.
Shiny Silverware As time progresses, silverware accumulates dirt that eventually tints its color. You might think that it’s time to toss your set out and buy a new one, but that is not the case. You can clean affected silverware with baking powder and hot water and watch how your silverware transforms back to brand new.
Spotlessly Clean Bathroom Cleaning the bathroom is never a fun or enjoyable task. When dirt and grime is caked into the bathtub, it’s even worse. Baking soda is here to the rescue once again. Mix baking soda and water to form a paste and rub onto stubborn stains. Let sit for 20 minutes and then watch as it easily comes right off with one wipe.
Air Freshener Tired of spray air fresheners that are full of mysterious ingredients and only mask bad odors? Baking soda is a fantastic alternative, as it actually eliminates the odors completely rather than just covering them. You can also add in some drops of essential oils to add a fresh scent.
No More Body Odor If you feel like you’ve tried every single deodorant in the pharmacy, perhaps it’s time to introduce some baking soda into your routine. While there are now deodorants that have baking soda in them, you can make your very own at home. Simply mix baking soda with warm water and gently massage it into your armpits.
Mix some baking soda into warm water and swish it around your mouth as you would with any commercial mouth wash. It’s a natural and effective alternative.
Sprinkling baking soda onto the carpet and scrub with warm water. You can also leave it to soak overnight and then vacuum away any excess in the morning. Your carpet will look good as new.
Taking Vitamin C reduces the symptoms of a cold.
If you have a stuffy nose, keeping yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water and clear chicken broth to help make your mucus thinner and more fluid. That will allow it to drain faster from your nose and sinuses. Downing lots of liquids will also keep the membranes in your airways lubricated.
Roast bananas to get a bunch bread-ready-No need to chase down brown bananas. Ripen a bunch in a flash by baking on a foil-lined baking sheet at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes, depending on size, until the skins are dark brown and the fruit is soft.
Clean an egg boiler by boiling it for a short while with a bit of vinegar in it. It will lift and dissolve everything.
Cook bacon between two sheet pans-Baking bacon is a classic kitchen trick to save face—from the fat splatters. Go double-duty next time and layer the pork pieces between two sheet pans, the bottom one slightly larger than the top, to keep the bacon flat and curl-free, too.
Peel a mango with a glass-It takes about 15 seconds! Using a knife, slice thick pieces off the sides of the mango (cutting as close as possible to the pit without hitting it). Set the edge of one mango wedge on the top of a drinking glass and push it down to separate the skin from the flesh. Repeat with the other slice, dump the fruit out of the glass, and slice into bite-sized pieces for fruit salads, smoothies, and salsas.
Test avocado readiness at the stem-Test your toast topping before you slice inside the fruit. Peel back the stem. If it pulls away easily and you see green, you're good to go and can expect creamy, green flesh inside. If it resists, allow it to ripen longer, and if you see brown, the avocado is likely past its prime.
Extend the life of your bananas by wrapping the stems.
Cut lettuce with a plastic or ceramic knife to keep it from bruising.
