I've ditched my Tom's of Maine toothpaste for plain baking soda. It cleans my teeth so well, whitens, and I actually like the taste. It's very cheap and I use it gently for a body/face scrub as well. Pretty effective. Best part is, no SLS or other chemicals and I feel good about using it. Will try making shampoo with it!

Best self tanner remover
Baking soda is a great exfoliator. It can be harsh if you rub too vigorously, use it too much or dont dilute. it leaves my skin unbelievably smooth and helps with acne
Cant beat the price!

I have been using this to exfoliate every couple of days and am so impressed! I wet my hands sprinkle a good bit in my palm and start rubbing in small circles. This stuff works better than some rather expensive products that I have purchased in the past. It is truly amazing that this simple product works so well and cost so little!

Wow, this works great as an exfoliator. I tried it with just water but my skin got red. The next time I mixed it with my current cleanser (Biore gel), and I got smooth skin sans any irritation. The only problem is the cardboard box. Can't have that around the sink. I'm thinking of getting a cheese shaker to store it in. I just saw a video on YT where a chick is using an electric toothbrush to exfoliate... hmm. Maybe I'll try that next.

I've been using baking soda for years as a dry shampoo. My bangs get icky pretty soon after I shampoo - like the next day - so I flip my head over and sprinkle some baking soda into my palm and distribute, starting at the roots, through my bangs and through my top layer of hair. As a suggestion, you might want to do this in the morning before your facial wash because baking soda if left to settle on your skin can be irritating.

This works as a perfect refresher, and ladies, it's dirty cheap. Try it!

I use this all the time for EVERYTHING! But my most favorite use is actually the one that saves me the most money, which I know that everyone loves.... Instead of paying $$$ for special blond highlight shampoo (paul mitchel shampoo 3/goldwell etc...) I add 1 tablespoon of baking soda to my regular shampoo once a week and wash. Sometimes you need to add a bit more water to your hair to produce a better lather, but baking soda removes all of my product buildup as well as the deposits left on my hair by hard water and the elements. this is my HG for beauty products.

Another tip- Add 1 cup of Baking Soda to a hot bath with 2 cups of Epsom salt and soak for 30 minutes. You can actually smell the crud being sucked out of your poors and it is so detoxifying that you might be very tired afterwards. Just empty the tub and rinse the residue off in the shower...

I really, really like this. It is an amazing facial scrub. I usually just mix it with a bit of water and VERY VERY GENTLY scrub my face. It kinda burns my skin a bit though, so that's why I took a lippie off... But it makes my face incredibly smooth, and once I wash it off, the burning is gone. I have oily, oily skin and this dries me out like crazy, so I don't see this working out for those with dry skin, unless you follow up with a very moisturizing face lotion. Anyway, after scrubbing, I follow it up with some lotion and the next morning, I have super soft, smooth skin. Hooray!!

I have a bit of redness in my face, and baking soda mixed with just a little water calms it down. I've recently targeted the few red scars on my face, and the baking soda mask has already started fading them in just a couple of days. If you aren't allergic or anything like that, I highly recommend!

Love this stuff
The only con is making sure you wash it all off or you will have white ashy looking resedue.
But other than that
I use it to was my face, in my baths (it makes bubbles last longer), even in the shower. I use it after i brush my teeth with tooth paste.I even wash my hands with it.
It makes my skin feel soooooo soft and smooth. It feels like you just had a microdemerbration where ever you used it beacuse you skin is so soft.
Its pretty inexpensive.
I buy it from publix in a plastic container (for $2.?? something) so i can leave it in the shower. plus it has a flip top lid, so i just pop the top shake out what i need and slap it closed. And then refill it with a big box that i have under my counter.
I never knew Baking soda was sooo great
