Baking soda, a natural product for all house cleaning. And for personal hygiene

Become deodorant, toothpaste, and shampoo. In the kitchen, ideal for cleaning the refrigerator and oven. In the washing machine, it replaces the softener


At home, it must never be missing. For a very simple reason: you can clean practically everything with baking soda, a natural remedy, which allows you to avoid wasting money and excessive industrial products.

From floors to furniture, from sofas to clothes: baking soda is also very effective in eliminating stubborn stains. It is also a natural anti-odor product, precious where bad odors often thicken. In the refrigerator, in the pantry, in the bathrooms. Again: it is an exceptional repellent for ants, cockroaches, and centipedes. And during the summer, just put it in a bowl, as if it were a coaster, to keep mosquitoes away.


Chemically called sodium salt of carbonic acid, sodium bicarbonate is a substance present in nature in deposits that see it present in the form of effervescences or encrustations, so it is often extracted with low economic and environmental impact. However, it is also produced on an industrial scale due to its massive use in the food industry, starting from a base of ammonia, carbon dioxide, and sodium chloride. It is codified among the food additives certified by the European Union with the code E 500.

Its properties are truly manifold, the first of which is its power to neutralize odors thanks to its ability to make acidic and basic PH neutral, as well as the release of carbon dioxide when heated. It is the reason why biscuits, bread, or desserts rise fragrantly and grow in the oven. Baking soda can also act as a very mild abrasive cleaner, perfect for removing stains from sinks, countertops, and even fine china.
