Tip 20: Remove The Smell Of The Refrigerator
Put baking soda in the refrigerator to effectively remove odor.
Principle: The odor of the refrigerator is mainly caused by volatile organic acids and alkalis produced by the deterioration of the food. For example, the deteriorated meat and milk will decompose the short-chain fatty acids (with acid taste), and the spoiled fish will volatilize. A highly basic amine compound (with a bad smell), baking soda can react with these substances to form a volatile sodium salt, which absorbs odor.
Tip 21: Natural Polish
After using the kitchen utensils for a long time, it will become dull. Just mix white vinegar with the flour.

Tip 24: Unblock The Drain
Whether it is a bathroom or a kitchen, you can pour 1/4 cup baking soda and half a cup of white vinegar. Wait 3-5 minutes and then rinse with hot water to keep the drain clear. Remember this is a way to prevent siltation.
The principle is that vinegar is a kind of acid, and combing baking soda is a kind of alkali. Even if the two are not active, the mixing will still occur in the middle and the hair, and will also release a lot of heat. It also reacts with the surrounding organic matter. The mechanism is the same, just that everything happens less intensely, but it just happens to be what we need.
Tip 25: Clean The Range Hood

Some soft body or painted surfaces should not be cleaned with baking soda, otherwise, the surface may be scratched.
2. Affect The Texture Of Wool
Baking soda is an alkaline substance and is not suitable for cleaning materials that are sensitive to alkaline substances such as wool and silk clothing. Otherwise, it may change its protein structure and affect the texture.
3. Luxury Jewelry Color Change
Avoid cleaning precious jewelry with baking soda which may discolor the metal.
4. Marble surface
White vinegar must not be used to rub marble surfaces such as marble floors or furniture because acetic acid reacts chemically with calcium carbonate in the marble to tarnish the marble surface.
