One of the best ways to clean with baking soda is to mix it with vinegar. Baking soda wears gently on stains and is therefore very useful as a regular cleaner to keep dirt away rather than as part of a deep cleaning. However, if you mix it with vinegar, you create carbonic acid that is more sparkling - and better to rub - and also more corrosive and therefore more stubborn on stains.

Toilet Bowl

Toilet bowls may become stained even if they have a stain resistant coating. Strong (home cleaners products) cleansers can wear enamel on the bowl during stain removal and, therefore, a less abrasive cleaning alternative will keep stains away while keeping toilets fresh. Sprinkle baking soda on your toilet and leave it alone. Wet with vinegar. Rub and rinse.


Shower Doors
