The baking soda is an item used for many things, from cleaning, to skin care and even health. Usually it is used for a cough, but also for curing and preventing health issues and even making clothes whiter.
Besides this, the soda also absorbs bad odors and can freshen up carpets and even clean surfaces. But for beauty is even more amazing!
Here are the uses:
1. No acne
Baking soda removes acne and pimples, make paste of water and baking soda and rub it on the face then rinse.
2. Whitening teeth
Get the toothpaste you use and read the label for the items, there should be also baking soda. When mixed with hydrogen peroxide, this makes teeth whiter, but do not use it too often since the enamel might get damaged. Once a week is enough.
3. Fresh breath
If you have bad breath, mint drops are not enough. They just hide the surface of the problem named halitosis. Baking soda can remove this odor fast and well. Use 1 tsp baking soda in water a glass and mix. Gargle this to clean the throat and mouth, thus bacteria will be removed. Do it every other day.
4. Soften skin
