Baking soda cleaning hack: The seven ways to use baking soda to eliminate smells

1 min read


Baking soda is known for unblocking drains when combined with vinegar, but this hack can also remove bad smells from drains too.

Cleanipedia recommends tipping a few tablespoons of baking soda into a drain with warm white vinegar and then running the hot water tap for a few minutes.

The advice claims: “This will help dislodge, or at least deodorise anything causing a smell.”

This hack won’t work on serious blockages – for that, you’ll need a commercial cleaning product.

Household surfaces

You can neutralise bad smells from most household surfaces with baking soda.

Clean up whatever you’ve spilt on the surface and then make a solution with baking soda and scrub them down gently.

This even works on carpets when they’ve been badly stained, the experts at Cleanipedia said.
