The Miracles of Baking Soda




Miracle #1 of Baking soda

So which do you use? Deodorant or Baking Soda? I know that probably most of you readers use deodorant because it's easier to put on (or you never knew you could use baking soda) and it smells better. Baking soda is actually better for you than deodorant too. People have done studies; and using deodorant can actually give you breast cancer and Alzheimer's when you're older. I actually use baking soda because when I would put on deodorant, my armpits would itch nonstop throughout the day! Baking soda is NOT easier to put on; I will tell you that; but when I use it, I almost NEVER need to reapply all day. It lasts almost all day too.

Miracle #2 of Baking soda

Not only can you use baking soda for 'baking', but you can also use it to make a paste for bee stings, ant stings, stings etc. What happens is when you put it in the paste (you also use water), it gets the venom out of the sting and soothes the pain. My grandmother is a nurse; so she recommended it to us. I have had many, many, MANY stings; so I know this works. The trick to this though is to use it right when you get the bite; right when it's fresh because if you wait a day to put it on, it won't work.

Miracle #3 of Baking soda


So you can use it for stings and a replacement of deodorant. That's not all though! Did you know that if you brush your teeth with it, it will whiten them? Yep, it sure does! My friend Kiley told me about using it for brushing. I of course use tooth paste; but after I'm done done doing my regular brushing I wet my tooth brush and sprinkle baking soda on there. It does NOT taste good; it tastes salty and bitter; but it really does whiten teeth! I just forget about the taste and I brush like I would brush regularly. Ok, you all are probably ready for this post to end; so good news....it's ending right now! Happy Blogging!

  2. LOL! That's funny that you use the same one I have. All you do to put it on is just get plain old baking soda get a pinch of it and rub it in. I usually put about three or four pinches of it. It works great!

    Yeah, all you have to do is put a little water on your armpit, or when you jump out of the shower, you can just put a few small pinches of baking soda all over your armpit, and it works great! It is also all all-natural and is proven to work way better! Enjoy baking soda, it's AWESOME!

  8. Oh, and one more important thing! The thing in regular deoderant that causes alztimers, is aluminum. Even if you get deoderant that says on the bottle that it doesn't have aluminum in it, it still does, because it also gets aluminum on it from the machines its made on.

  11. Ha ha! Yea, I wasn't so sure about the brushing the teeth thing at first either, but once you do it two or three times, it's not so bad. :)

  14. Hey Anna Gray,
    I won't be at the 2nd art class that I'm usally in, so, I guess if you still want to take a pic of us, than maybe we could do it art your class ends and before the 3rd one begins? Did that make any sense?

  15. Okay, I know that I am commenting AGAIN, but I forgot one more cool thing that you can do with baking soda. If you have stinky shoes, you can just rub in about five pinches of baking soda all over the inside of your shoes, and the stink will be all gone! Do this about every couple weeks, or if your shoes smell before then!
