- Fill the empty bottle about halfway with vinegar.
- Add 3 tablespoons of ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda onto a small square of paper towel.
- Roll the paper towel tightly enough to fit inside bottle, and so that no baking soda can spill out.

- Take the bottle outside. Turn the bottle upside down, place on its ’feet’ and STAND BACK!
