With warmer weather fast approaching, it’s time to dust away the winter blues and refresh your home for spring. Clean your home with natural, food-safe Arm & Hammer Baking Soda instead of harsh cleaners. It can be used in almost every room in the house and it only costs about $1 for a 1 lb. box!

Suggested Tips for Spring Cleaning 

 In the Kitchen 

  •  Food Safe Surface Cleaning 
  • Clean your food prep area and tools with natural, food safe ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda instead of harsh cleaners. Sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda onto a clean damp sponge or cloth and wipe clean, rinse thoroughly, and then dry. Great for counters, stainless steel sinks, cutting boards, microwaves, lunch boxes, wooden spoons, oven tops, range hoods and more.
  • Drains and Garbage Disposals 
  • What goes down sometimes comes back up. To deodorize your drains and disposal, and keep lingering odors from resurfacing, pour ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda down the drain while running warm tap water. Baking Soda will neutralize both acid and basic odors for a fresh drain.
  • Manage Microwave Mess 
  • Who wants popcorn that tastes like a science experiment? ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a fresh, damp sponge gently cleans inside and outside the microwave and never leaves a harsh chemical smell. Rinse well with water.

In the Living Room 

  • Freshen Upholstery 
  • Keep comfy upholstered sofas and chairs smelling fresh with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Sprinkle Baking Soda on upholstery, wait 15 minutes and vacuum up.
  • Freshen and Deodorize Carpets 
  • A sprinkle a day keeps the odors away. Sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on carpets and let sit for 15 minutes before vacuuming.

In the Dining Room  

  • Carpet Spills 
  • Clean and deodorize spills or accidents on carpets by soaking up as much of the spill as possible. Clean the stain according to the carpet manufacturer's directions and allow to dry. When the area is completely dry, sprinkle liberally with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda and let sit for 15 minutes before vacuuming it up. Great for pet and kid messes too! Check for color-fastness first before applying ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda.
  • Remove Scuff Marks on Floors 
  • Remove dirt and grime (without unwanted scratch marks!) from no-wax and tile floors using 1/2 cup ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a bucket of warm water – mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor. For unsightly scuff marks, use ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a clean damp sponge, then rinse. Great for high-traffic areas and after dinner parties too!
  • Polish Silver Flatware 
  • ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda can shine all your holiday silver in no time at all. Before your guests arrive for dinner, make a natural cleaning paste with three parts ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to one part water. Rub onto the silver with a clean cloth or sponge. Rinse thoroughly and dry for shining sterling and silver-plate serving pieces.
