The benefits of Baking Soda for home cleaning should be clear. It is inexpensive, it is widely available, and most people already have it. However, there are still some myths about it. Baking soda has been used in households for hundreds of years but is not known to have any side effects. It is also one of the cheapest household cleaners around.
The first myth about baking soda is that you can add it to your water in a bottle and pour it in, or in a container, and it will magically become cleaner. This is not true. Sodium bicarbonate is an extremely soft substance and it does not react with any other chemicals or liquids in your water. So it cannot’melt’ into your water and cleanse your water. It also reacts with some plastics and is a common ingredient in paint removers.
It also reacts with most drugs. This is because many prescription medications are also formulated to be low in sodium. Also, some diuretics (water pills) will decrease the amount of sodium in your body. This is because they tend to lower the amount of water in your body and sodium attracts water. Therefore, if you take diuretics, you should avoid using this product and you may experience water retention or even kidney damage.
Baking soda may be effective as an insect repellent, but do not use it outdoors. You could also have an allergic reaction to the baking soda. If you feel this way, stop using it. It is okay to have a small amount around the house though, just be sure you know which chemicals and household goods you may be allergic to.
Baking soda for mouthwash: While there is no evidence to support its use as a mouthwash, some people have claimed that it works better than regular toothpaste. It has antibacterial properties, so it may help to kill germs. However, it is best to stay away from alcohol-based mouth rinses since they are also known to have antibacterial properties. One thing to note is that baking soda should not be used in conjunction with other cleaners since it may cause a reaction. If you suspect you’ve been exposed to cleaning products with baking soda, get medical attention right away.
Toothpastes have been used for hundreds of years, so they must work. Unfortunately, no one knows exactly how toothpastes actually work since all toothpastes contain the same active ingredients. The ingredients are usually in either a base that is suspended in a liquid solution, or in a paste or crystallized form. There are different toothpastes for different needs.
If you are suffering from cavities, then using baking soda for toothpaste is highly recommended. The reason is because it can improve the pH level of the mouth, which allows food particles to stay below the surface. Therefore, cavities are less likely to form. Also, cavities are much more likely to heal when they are filled with something alkaline, such as baking soda.
It is a good idea to use baking soda for toothpaste even if you’re only going to use a small amount. However, if you want to use a stronger toothpaste or are trying to treat an existing cavity, it is strongly recommended that you use a commercial product instead of a homemade version. Your dentist will recommend a specific brand of toothpaste, so it is best to follow his or her advice. On a side note, it is also possible to find toothpastes that already contain baking soda, so you can just purchase those instead of having to individually purchase the ingredients.
