If you don't have this incredibly helpful book--maybe two or three around the house and workshop--someone should thump you upside the head. Baking soda is natural, inexpensive, and so easy to use. "Baking Soda: Over 500 Fabulous, Fun, and Frugal Uses You've Probably Never Thought Of" will tell you how.

You know about baking soda in the refrigerator to absorb odors and down the drain with vinegar followed by a hot water rinse to keep drains flowing freely. How about sprinkling some in your suitcases when you next store them to eliminate that musty odor that grows in the dark of your absence. Or sprinkle it on your closet floor the day before you vacuum.

Soak dirty mops and rags in a solution of baking soda and water after you finish mopping and make that final rinse. Rinse and let dry.

Make the dirtiest windows sparkle by washing them with a wet sponge sprinkled with baking soda. Rinse with a clean sponge and dry.

Leave 1 cup ammonia in a cold, closed oven overnight. In the morning remove the ammonia, sprinkle the oven with baking soda and wipe down with damp paper towels. Most of the residue will come off.

Give chocolate cake a darker texture by adding 1 teaspoon baking soda with the other dry ingredients.

Remove tape residue from windows and woodwork by using a baking soda paste.

Keep a small box or shaker box of baking soda in your car to sprinkle on your hands after you pump gas. Wipe them clean with a damp paper towel found right there at the pump. No more smelly gas on your hands!

There, I've listed ten fabulous, fun, and frugal uses of baking soda. The book will give you 495 more.

Oh, do you know that virtually all of the baking soda in America comes from Green River, Wyoming, from the mined mineral, trona? It is also manufactured in one natural factory--your body! It keeps our saliva from dissolving our teeth and neutralizes stomach acids. It also carries carbon dioxide from body tissues to the lungs where it is exhaled. An amazing thing is baking soda.

I have used this book to solve some problems and it has inspired me in other ways. Being older, my teeth are more yellow than white and yet whenever I use the peroxide stuff for whitening them, it burns the inside of my mouthy. So now I rinse with water with baking soda in it after the treatment.

Remember when Arm & Hammer was high on our grocery list?

Down memory lane with all the old household advise for using Baking Soda in cooking, laundry, gardening, dental care, grooming, pet care and a few new ones, for use in our vehicle, while camping, and as play projects. I'm reminded again, there really is no need to spend so many dollars on oil based products with 'grab me' names and colorful packaging. Just keep on hand Baking Soda, vinegar, ammonia, lemon juice, peroxide and clorax - can do it all.

The book is well laid out with a cartoon on the first page of each section. Easy to read big print, lots of bullets, a dark font heading for each area of tips... from making your own low acid coffee to, making dirty windows sparkle or, clean your suade skirt.

This is one book I wish each chapter included a pull-out laminated chart that I could slip into places like the laundry, medicine cabinet or kitchen drawer.

My wife loves these type books that let you use normal household products for new purposes. This is a helpful book. The Amazon description was very clear and accurate. The Amazon customer reviews were helpful. It was well packaged and arrived on schedule.
