When I first started Hoosier Homemade, and for many years prior to that, I used ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda to clean our home. Not only does it work great, but it’s also less expensive than commercial cleaners. Not to mention, it doesn’t have all those chemicals and fumes that the sprays do.

Fast forward a few years, and the busier I got with blogging and the business, the more of the cleaning that Doug took over for me. Now, while it’s a HUGE help to have him working with me, guys sometimes just like doing things their own way. And he liked using the sprays. Since I didn’t want to complain – after all, he was cleaning the house – I let him clean with the products he wanted.

Then along came the opportunity to use ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda, so I had him give it a try for himself…

  1. What about a metal sink? Any ideas how to get it shiny and new looking?

  2. This is what I use too but I use the one I put in my refrigerator and freezer so I do not waste them and then I put a new one in the fridge/freezer. The circle of life for the baking soda!
