Summer is starting to wind down — and that means it’s time to help get your family ready for Back to School. Give your home a fresh, clean start with the natural power of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Here are 5 helpful Back to School tips!
Kids’ lunchboxes see a variety of different snacks- some wet, some dry. Lunchboxes can get really messy and smelly over a period of time. For an all-natural way to clean and deodorize them, sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a damp sponge, then gently wipe the inside and outside of the lunchbox and rinse. (Repeat when necessary)
No one likes a smelly gym bag. Use an ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda solution (4 tablespoons ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in 4 cups of warm water) to clean and deodorize smelly sports equipment.
Alternatively sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda into gym bags and sneakers to deodorize them and leave it there for an entire day. The next day empty out the excess baking soda left in the gym bag/sneakers and—abracadabra—the odors are gone!
Kids’ school bags can get a bit stinky from the last school year. If that’s the case, a simple deodorizing will do. The best way to get rid of odors in backpacks and lunch bags is simply to shake some baking soda into the bottom of them, then let them sit wide open for an entire day. The next day empty out the excess baking soda left in the back pack and voila! It’s now fresh and odor free.
Give your laundry a boost! Add 1⁄2 cup of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to your laundry to make liquid detergent work harder for you and your family. A better balance of pH in the wash gets clothes cleaner, fresher, brighter!
5.Clean Fruits & Vegetables
There’s nothing like a healthy fruit snack for a growing child, but you can’t just wash your fruits and veggies with just water. To remove dirt, wax, and residue from hard-skinned produce, shake ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda onto wet produce. Rub and rinse. For soft-skinned or leafy produce, sprinkle Baking Soda in a bowl of water. Add produce, agitate, and rinse.
