Product Review: Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

Where do I start when writing a review for Arm and Hammer Baking Soda?

There are no two ways about it, baking soda is my favorite product for cleaning my home.  It is the most versatile and hardworking of any product I’ve ever tried.

A quick look through my cleaning posts and you’ll see what I mean… I use baking soda for everything from cleaning greasy pans to deodorizing carpets and laundry.

If you don’t use baking soda for cleaning you may be wondering, with so many fancy cleaning products out there, why do I turn to baking soda again and again?

There are a few reasons.

The first is cost.  Baking soda, especially when purchased in bulk from a warehouse store, or with a coupon, is such a good value.  It certainly costs less than buying a lot of separate cleaners.

The second reason is the eco-friendly impact it has on my home.  I’ve been able to replace highly toxic products with baking soda- a product I also use in pancakes and cookies.  After I became a mom, I started worrying about the products I was using around my kids. I didn’t want to “pollute” my home (and expose my family to toxic chemicals) in an attempt to clean.  So I started looking for safer solutions.  I tried different brands of environmentally friendly products, but cost was an issue.  Many of the “eco-friendly” products were too expensive to use on a regular basis, and some of them just didn’t work all that well.

Which brings me to the last, and best reason I turn to baking soda most often.  It works.

It really works.

It takes the odor out of stinky clothes.

It cuts through greasy splatters on my barbecue grill.

It removes crayon from walls and pencil smudges from my cream painted kitchen table.

It’ll scrub right through soap scum.

Basically it’s a rockin’ multipurpose cleaner… that really works.  And in the end that’s why I love Arm and Hammer Baking Soda.

  • I am with you – I LOVE BAKING SODA for everything. It works wonders in my bathroom since we have hard water.

    And, maybe this is TMI, but I use it in my horse stalls too when they need to be freshened up a bit ;) Or dried out a tad.

    I also love using baking soda to clean! Have you tried cleaning a stainless steel sink with it? Make sure the sink in wet, then pour some baking soda onto your hand and rub it against the sink. Its a little gross but you can actually feel the grime that you are cleaning off. After you are done, just rinse the baking soda down the drain and you are left with a shiny sink. AMAZING!

  • I LOVE BAKING SODA too. :o)
    Recently, a friend of mine put a few drops of essential oil into a jar of baking soda, popped a few holes on the top of the lid and I keep it under my kitchen sink. I use it constantly to clean my sink. I also use it on the carpets. I just sprinkle it on, let it set and vacuum it up. PURE LOVE I tell ya!! :o)
    Have a wonderful week.
    Sincerely, Trish

    If you put it in an old parmesan container, you have an instant sprinkle container. I have chemical issues—massive migraines, so I use baking soda for so many different uses.
