Why You Should Think Twice Before Using Baking Soda To Clean Your Home
While baking soda can be a gentle and effective way to remove visible stains, dirt, and grime, it doesn't do much to make surfaces more sanitary.
While baking soda can kill some forms of bacteria and fungi, it doesn't actually eliminate illness-causing bacteria like E. Coli, Salmonella, and cold and flu viruses.
It can, however, act as a gentle abrasive, scrubbing away grime on countertops and dishes so that your disinfectant or dish soap can work more effectively.
To sanitize areas like bathrooms and kitchens, where the risk for bacterial spread is high, use a solution containing bleach or alcohol instead.
