Baking Soda Cleaning

So I've somewhat been obsessed with cleaning with baking soda lately. It started with the sink... well okay it started with Pinterest. Looking at all the fun ways of getting things clean: soaking paper towels in vinegar then wrapping around the base of faucet fixtures then washing with a brush and baking soda, soaking shower heads in vinegar to rid the hard water deposits, etc., etc. The other day I was cleaning the sink and thought "I need to pick up some more comet" then the light bulb turned on, I'll just try some baking soda. Viola! Super white sink and no harsh chemicals!

So another thing I saw on pinterest was cleaning those vent filters above the stove. I gave it a whirl and wow did it work. Boiling water, add some baking soda (watch out it fizzes, which is why I added the baking soda before it started boiling) then let it do it's dirty work. The water was pretty sludgy afterwards so I threw the water outside in some rocks, then the stock pot cleaned up nicely with some dish soap. And my vent filters are sparkling clean now!!!

After the vent cleaning I used that good old baking soda on the stove top and knobs, nice and WHITE!
