Thirteen Things about Serendipity

Baking and useful and edible!

1. Deodorizing Wastebasket
Defeating odors in the bathroom often feel like a waste of time. Keep bathroom wastebaskets fresh-smelling with just a sprinkle of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Apply regularly as you add to the container or when empty wash the container with a solution of 1 cup of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda per 1 gallon of water.

2. Deodorizing Drains
What goes down sometimes comes back up. To deodorize your sink and tub drains, and keep lingering odors from resurfacing, pour ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda down the drain (1/2 cup) while running warm tap water. ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda will neutralize both acid and basic odors for a fresh drain. Here's a tid bit to remember - when replacing your box of ARM & HAMMER® Fridge-n-Freezer® Odor Absorber (every 3 months) pour the contents of the old box down the drain to get a little extra mileage.

3. Mouth Cleaning
Clean up your mouth! ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda is a gentle non-fluoride dentifrice that helps keep teeth clean and white. Dip a damp toothbrush in some ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda sprinkled into your palm. Brush as usual and rinse. For a smile that’s Cleaner, Whiter, Fresher(tm) try ARM & HAMMER® Oral Care products with the proven cleaning power of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda does not contain the anti-cavity ingredient fluoride. Use it where water is fluorinated or when a non-fluoride toothpaste is desired for adult use or as directed by your dentist or physician.

4. Surface-Safe Cleaning
Glub in the tub? For safe, effective cleaning of bathroom tubs, tile and sinks - even shiny fiberglass and glossy tiles- sprinkle ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda lightly on a clean damp sponge and scrub as usual. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. Afterwards, take a nice relaxing bath without the worry of harsh chemicals.

5. Cleaning Bathroom Floors
Leave it up to ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to speed things up in the bathroom. ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda helps remove the dirt and grime from a bathroom tile or no-wax floor quickly and easily. Mix 1/2 cup ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a bucket of warm water, mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor.

6. Shower Curtains
Clean and deodorize your vinyl shower curtain by sprinkling ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda directly on a clean damp sponge or brush. Scrub the shower curtain and rinse clean. Hang it up to dry.

7. Septic Care
Regular use of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in your drains can help keep your Septic System flowing freely. We recommend adding 1 cup of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda per week to help maintain a favorable pH in your Septic Tank.

8. Deodorant
A quick pit stop. Dust ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda under arms as needed to feel fresh all day. The magic of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda actually absorbs odors instead of just covering them up. For wetness and deodorization protection, try ARM & HAMMER® ULTRAMAX Deodorant Antiperspirant.

9. Antacid
Spicy food is yummy until it bothers the tummy. ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda is a safe and effective antacid to relieve heartburn, sour stomach and/or acid indigestion, when used as directed. Always refer to the ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda package for instructions. Learn more about how ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda works as an antacid.

10. Oral Appliance Soak
Don’t let odors keep you tight-lipped. Soak oral appliances, like retainers, mouthpieces, and dentures in a solution of 2 teaspoons ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda dissolved in a glass or small bowl of warm water. The ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda loosens food particles and neutralizes odors to keep appliances fresh! You can also brush appliances clean using ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda.

11. Soothing Foot Soak
A great way to start your home pedicure. Dissolve 3 tablespoons of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in a basin of warm water and soak feet. Gently scrub with a paste of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. The hardest part is deciding which color nail polish you’ll use this week!

12. Hair Care
For locks that rock, remember to shake it. Sprinkle a small amount (quarter-size) of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda into your palm along with your favorite shampoo. Shampoo as usual and rinse thoroughly.The ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda helps remove the residue that styling products leave behind so your hair is cleaner and more manageable.

13. Mouth Freshening
Bad breath keeping you tight-lipped? Open up for ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda. Put one teaspoon in half a glass of water, swish, spit and rinse. Odors are neutralized - not just covered up - so get ready to pucker up!

I love your Thursday Thirteens. :)

Baking soda also deordorizes refrigerators. Leave an open box in the fridge. Change it every so often. Dump the old box down the drain as in point two.

Arm and Hammer is awesome. I used to sprinkle Arm and Hammer in my cat litter boxes to help absorb the odor.
