I know that I've shared before how baking soda is my favorite cleaning supply, but I discovered another use for baking soda a few months ago!!
When Elizabeth came home, she barely fit in the kitchen sink for her bath. So, I knew that it was time for the regular bathtub. I do have a seat for her to sit in while bathing, so I was fine with that. But I was VERY concerned about how the cleaner that I used to clean the bathtub would do with her baby skin. I wanted to use something as gentle as possible for her skin yet something that would clean the bathtub, too. After just a little thought, I remembered how much I LOVE baking soda!!! I made sure that the tub was slightly wet, poured about a cup of baking soda all over the tub (I buy the big 12 pound packages of baking soda at Sam's, in case you are wondering how I have so much!! LOL!) then started scrubbing. Baking soda cleans PERFECTLY!!!! Not only does it shine, but it also scrubs away all the icky blue residue that our water leaves in the bathtub!! WOOHOOO! I am SOLD!! Now I have a safe and very cleansing product to make sure my bathtub is clean AND my baby's skin won't get irritated!!!
