I agree. I noticed that no one spoke of a ratio of how much water and how much baking soda you should use to clean stuff. I would imagine it is a small amount - but truly, I dont know. Baking soda is not THAT cheap! Sometimes, I think we pro cleaners get a little too obsessed with this sort of thing. There ARE products out there that clean very well, dont cost a lot and also smell good. Customers seem to appreciate their office or home smelling nicer after you leave.

homelization Use baking soda to clean hot water stains

If you are trying to remove older hard water stains like mines, or a significant area build-up, elbow grease will not work. Baking powder is an adequate remedy that can help you remove the stains. Remember, baking soda is an alkaline. Hence, it can be used to remove mineral deposits. It is natural, environmentally friendly, safe and an excellent product to clean the glasses.

There are two methods for using baking soda to remove the stains. You can mix the baking soda with vinegar to make an active paste, or apply vinegar first to the stain, then apply baking soda.

smithbrothers The release of carbon dioxide from baking soda in water causes the carbon dioxide to react with the water and create carbonic acid. The acid is what dissolves. The abrasive nature of the baking soda creates some mechanical muscle. Sometimes and in some conditions baking soda can be used on carpet or rug cleaning but you must be careful and read manufacturer instructions first. There are other ways to mix a mechanical abrasive with an acid like lemon juice or vinegar for cleaning as well. Lots of solutions but baking soda is a good one.

delightcarpetcare Baking soda isn't a great idea for carpet & upholstery we have seen people try it and damage their property or leave behind a fine powder residue - best to avoid.
