Back to Basics: How to Clean with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Baking soda and vinegar have been used for decades as home cleaning solutions in the battle against dirt and grime. But what if we could give the power of baking soda and vinegar just a tad more oomph? That’s the question that inspired us to create our brand new Baking Soda Cream Cleaner and Vinegar Gel No-Rinse Cleaner. They’re classic must-haves on your cleaning supply list. Just ask Thelma. We even improved them a bit by making them more convenient to use and better smelling with Lemon Verbena scent.

So what exactly can you use them to clean? How much time do you have? The list goes on and on, but here are a few of our go to’s.

WHAT IT IS:

Also known as sodium bicarbonate, this mildly abrasive cleaner is perfect for sprinkling on surfaces without having to worry about any scratching or leaving a gunky residue.

Where to use it:

Use it to clean and brighten tubs, sinks and showers. It also works wonders scrubbing away cooked-on grease and other tough grime in your kitchen.*

How we made baking soda even better:

We added naturally abrasive limestone flour, which means our new Baking Soda Cream Cleaner won’t dissolve away before you’re done cleaning. Plus, a thick and creamy texture means that it stays put, rather than running all over.

WHAT IT IS:

You can make vinegar from all sorts of things, like fruit, rice, grain or fermented beverages. It’s active ingredient, acetic acid, cleans, dissolves and makes surfaces shine. 

WHERE TO USE IT:

Tackle all sorts of household chores, from cleaning appliances and countertops to making sinks and showers shine. Even the soap scum found on shower curtains and ceramic tiles are no match.** 

HOW WE MADE VInegar EVEN BETTER:

An updated design thickened it up a bit and added more application control, which means the days of splashes and drips are long gone. Also, not to brag, but you can’t find anything quite like our new Vinegar Gel No-Rinse Cleaner in our market.
