Today, I’m sharing our top 17 ways of cleaning with baking soda in the kitchen!
There is actually a ton more baking soda uses for kitchen cleaning. The seventeen that I chose to include contain some of the more unusual uses that you may not see posted as often, plus a few ‘oldies but goodies’.
My goal for this post was to find some less expensive, easier ways of cleaning kitchen items with baking soda, which will keep you from discarding these items in the trash or given up on seeing them clean ever again. I hope they help you as much as they have helped me!
A few of these tutorials use baking soda in conjunction with a few other common ingredients as well, such as water, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and dish soap. It is likely that most homes will have all these items in stock. If not…they are worthy ‘pantry items’ to add to your next shopping list. Whatever you do…don’t forget the baking soda!

Hi, baking soda is the best thing to make your kitchen clean. Chemicals are not good to use because most of the time they leaves stains. Last month when my aunt was moved to her new house with the help of professional movers Brooklyn ny who provided her moving and kitchen cleaning services. According to her their way of working was amazing and they also provided guidelines to maintain a clean kitchen.

I found your article on 17 Best Baking Soda Uses for Cleaning Your Kitchen really interesting. It’s good to know that there are so many different uses for baking soda! I was a busy housewife with no time dealing with cleaning for some stuff in the house, so I call for the service. But when they used some chemicals in cleaning I feel so uneasy because I have a problem with some hard smell. That’s why when you share this one, I found it very interesting and informative.
