Spotlight on Baking Soda #2: Bathroom Scour Power

For a no-scratch cleaning of bathroom tubs, tile, and sinks–even fiberglass and glossy tiles–sprinkle baking soda lightly on a clean damp sponge. Make sure it's not too damp since baking soda dissolves in water. Scrub as usual.  Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. This is a good alternative to Ajax and Comet.

You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil if you'd like to add a fantastic natural fragrance. Oils like thyme and lavender will give you some antibacterial punch.

I like to save tiny artichoke hearts jars to create a dispenser to store baking soda for this purpose. Punch a dozen holes in the lid with a nail and hammer and voila, you've got a reusable shaker.
