Extinguishing Fires
Did you know that ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda can help in the initial handling of minor grease or electrical kitchen fires? That’s because when ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda is heated, it gives off carbon dioxide, which helps to smother the flames. For small cooking fires (frying pans, broilers, ovens, grills), turn off the gas or electricity if you can safely do so. Stand back and throw handfuls of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda at the base of the flame to help put out the fire -- and call the Fire Department just to be safe! Learn more about Fire Safety.
Deodorizing Recyclables
Keep those recyclables smelling fresh until collection day. Sprinkle Baking Soda on top as you add to the container. Also, clean your recyclable container periodically by sprinkling Baking Soda on a damp sponge. Wipe clean and rinse.

Baking Soda will neutralize both acid and basic odors for a fresh drain. Here' s a tidbit to remember - when replacing your box of Fridge-n-Freezer® Odor Absorber (every 30 days!) pour the contents of the old box down the drain to get a little extra mileage.
Clean & Deodorize Plastic Containers

Freshen Sponges
Here's something to soak in! Soak stale-smelling sponges in a strong ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda solution to get rid of the mess and bring in the fresh (4 tablespoons of ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda dissolved in 1 quart of warm water).

And while you’re at it, change your Whirlpool® water filter too!
Cleaning Coffee and Tea Pots
Here's a quick pick-me-up! Remove coffee and tea stains and eliminate bitter off-tastes by washing mugs and coffee makers in a solution of 1/4 cup ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda in 1 quart of warm water. For stubborn stains, try soaking overnight in the ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda solution and detergent or scrubbing with ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda on a clean damp sponge.
Recipes
Make sure your baked goods "rise" to the occasion! ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda is widely used as an agent to promote leavening.
