Baking soda

A mild abrasive that’s pretty much a wonder cleaner, baking soda cleans and deodorizes. A half cup of baking soda followed by a half cup of white vinegar makes an effective and non-toxic toilet bowl cleaner. Let the mixture froth, wait five minutes, and brush. Try baking soda in various combinations with water for other uses:

As a paste: Scrub mildew in the shower and on shower curtains; clean tiles and grout.

On a damp sponge: Brighten taps and other chrome fittings; clean worktops, appliances, and other surfaces.

Dissolved in warm or hot water: Clean your fridge inside and out; soak dirty pots and pans for an hour before scrubbing with an abrasive scrubber.
