Discover our tips for cleaning with baking soda.


Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is a white, fragrance-free, non-toxic powder that is useful for cleaning, scouring and deodorizing. It can easily replace scouring powder in the home and deodorize odor-prone areas.



According to the Vert Essentiel team, here are the best tips for cleaning with baking soda.



1- Baking soda to clean soap residue in the shower


Baking soda is effective for cleaning soap residue in the shower. Here’s the Vert Essentiel team’s favorite trick. Generously spray the kitchen and bathroom cleaner from Pure on the glass door, walls and floor, sprinkle your sponge or cloth with baking soda and scrub. Rinse and you’re done!


2- Scrubbing burnt pots and pans


Did you get food stuck or even burned to the bottom of the pan? Use baking soda as a scrubbing agent. You can also add a small amount of dish soap and a little water and boil. Everything will come off quickly and easily!


3- Maintaining the pipes


To maintain your plumbing, simply pour a small amount of baking soda down your sink or shower drain. Then pour in 15% household vinegar and watch it foam up! If the pipes are already clogged, repeat with more baking soda and household vinegar.  See this video to learn more: 3 cleaning tips


4- Deodorizing textiles


To deodorize the carpet, simply sprinkle baking soda over the entire surface and leave for several hours. Simply sweep it off with a vacuum cleaner.


5- Destroying bad odors


To eliminate odors in the refrigerator or freezer, simply place a cup of baking soda in it. For the garbage can, sprinkle a little baking soda in the bottom of it to eliminate 70% of the organic bad odors.
