And I’m not running out of things to “Trial Tuesday” either.
Baking Soda is something you can find in almost every home in America yet most people, myself included don’t know about it’s serious multi-tasking abilities.
Like most people, I’m sure, I could never seem to get through one tiny 8 oz. box of baking soda before its suggested 30 days were up (and ever since they gave us a spot to write it on the box, you better believe JB is all about tossing it once that day comes).
So why this sudden love for such a mundane product?
This is also why I love Kim.
Kim is proactiv and I am reactive.
Kim knows I’m lazy and doesn’t judge me for it she does the work for me b/c of it.
(And, in case you’re wondering, I have never met Kim! She is my sister’s partner in crime at work. That’s how awesome she is!)
Believe it or not this link was also in my bookmarks folder. It leads to a list made by the Youngster over at This Young House about all the stuff in your kitchen you can use to clean your entire house without chemicals.
Bookmarked and in the “To Do” folder.
But it took a little kick from Kim to get me started and I ended up with this:
Yes, there are still little spots where dirt is clinging for dear life but do you see those sparkly specs!? Those were never visible before!
My marble has sparkly specs!
I’m in love.
And I promise to stop talking about my granite slabs soon. But look at the baking soda in action:
Working from left to right, just after the crack is where the dirtiness begins. It’s a slight difference in the photo but trust me when I tell you it was a lot nastier before than I had realized.
I scrubbed these slabs so hard I thought my arms would fall off. So don’t do what I did and use a microfiber towel, the next time I use baking soda to scrub my marble I’m using a sponge.
That’s right, little dirt particles, start being scared.
PP Thanks, Kim!!! Anyone else make their own cleaners from stuff found in your kitchen?
