Baking soda is great for many things, like personal hygiene. But did you know that it can also fight odors and other problems in your home? Below are just a few of the fantastic ways that you can use baking soda in the house:

Stop fires. If a fire breaks out in your home, rest assured that baking soda can help! Keep a box in your kitchen and sprinkle it over flames if they disperse.

Zap roaches. One of the last things a homeowner wants is to find pests in the home. But luckily, all you need is a little baking soda and sugar. Simply set out a small bowl containing half sugar and half baking soda. While roaches love sugar, this mixture is toxic to them.

Clean shower doors. If you’re looking for an easy way to clean your dirty, glass shower doors, pour some baking soda on a damp sponge and was the doors. Then, rinse with warm water for a shiny finish.

Remove tape residue.
After a new paint job, it’s common for tape to get stick to your windows. To eliminate the residue, mix a thick paste combined with baking soda and water. Next, rub the paste onto those sticky pieces of tape and wipe the window clean.

Absorb moisture. Want to keep your house feeling fresh? It’s easy for food to go bad and leave an awful stench in your home, but keeping an open box of baking soda in your fridge or even on your bookshelves can eliminate moisture that causes bad odors.
