Exit the miracle products of the trade . If you need to revive white laundry that has tarnished or turned yellow with wear and tear: baking soda is your friend. If you wash the white fabric by hand, you can choose to soak it in hot water mixed with a few tablespoons of baking soda. If you machine it, add 2 tall glasses of baking soda to the drum. This trick, which is as effective as it is economical, ensures you a very white blank on arrival.

 

Make odors disappear

Now that we have to be home twice as much as usual, the smells can be much more disturbing. It may be nice to ventilate 10 minutes a day, some do not want to dissipate easily. Bicarbonate effectively neutralizes bad odors. You can sprinkle some inside smelly shoes (don't forget to empty them before putting them on), but also put some in a small cup that you will place in your refrigerator or in your bathroom to eradicate bad odors.

 

Eliminate mold

For lack of effective ventilation, the ceilings and walls of certain rooms in our homes are sometimes infested with mold. To overcome it, mix the baking soda with water to make a paste. Then come put it on the mushrooms to make them disappear. It will then be enough to clean everything with a damp cloth and to rub a little if necessary to dislodge everything.

 

Shine

To do this, mix 4 tablespoons of baking soda with 1L of water and immerse the toys in the mixture. You can also clean them with a cloth dipped in this mixture. Remember to rinse well behind to avoid leaving powder residue on the toys.
