3 Cleaning Hacks with ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda
ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda fits with our family’s cleaning routine because it is all-natural. It’s also very versatile and can be used in a variety of cleaning needs including as a natural laundry booster to increase cleaning and freshening. It can also be used in these 3 cleaning hacks…
1. Get the smell out of stinky towels
We talked about this cleaning hack here.
To remove the smell from stinky towels, no matter which type of washer you have, you simply follow three steps:
- Place towels into the washing machine. Add 1 cup of white vinegar. Run for one regular cycle.
- Leave towels in the washing machine. Add 1 cup of ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda. Run again for a regular cycle.
- Dry thoroughly in the dryer. (We use natural wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets or fabric softener.)
Do NOT mix the Super Washing Soda and vinegar into the same load thinking you’ll save a step. You will be most disappointed when instead you end up with a frothy volcano erupting from your washing machine!
2. Get toilet bowls sparkling clean
Here’s how to clean toilets to a sparkly shine using ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda.
- Pour 1/2 cup of ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda into the toilet bowl.
- Add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Oils like tea tree or peppermint are great for bathrooms.
- Pour 1/2 cup of white vinegar into the toilet bowl and let the mixture foam for several minutes. Remember to leave enough space for the mixture to foam in the toilet bowl.
- Finally, scrub gently with a toilet brush and flush.
Voila! Sparkling clean toilet bowls!
3. Clean soap scum and mineral buildup off of glass shower doors
There’s nothing quite like a clean shower. But soap scum and mineral buildup can make it seem like your shower doors just aren’t clean. And no amount of rinsing them with the showerhead can remove the film. Instead, try this easy 4 step process for cleaning your shower doors:
- Spray white vinegar all over the inside of glass shower doors.
- Combine equal parts ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda and salt and mix with enough water to make a paste.
- Apply to shower doors with a sponge and rub gently.
- Rinse thoroughly.
Important tips for using these cleaning hacks:
- Do not use HOT water when mixing vinegar into the cleaning solutions.
- Do not place the solution in an enclosed container with vinegar.
- Make sure to leave enough room for foaming in any container when mixing ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda with vinegar.
- Do not use on aluminum.
