3 Easy Baking Soda Hacks For Soap Scum, Scuff Marks & Stains

by Elnazhamai

Do you use baking soda for cleaning? It’s a mild abrasive that will clean heavy dirt off of most surfaces! Here are my three favorite baking soda hacks.

Tools and materials:

  • Baking soda
  • Dish soap
  • Sponge
  • Rotating cleaning brush
  • Bowl
  • Microfiber cloth

1. Soap scum remover

To get rid of soap scum in my bath and shower, I mix equal parts baking soda and dish soap in a bowl. I’ll put some on a damp sponge or rotating scrub brush (like I did here) to tackle soap scum or rust in the tub. I let the solution sit for 10 minutes before I rinse.

2. Scuff mark eliminator

I use baking soda to eliminate dirt and scuff marks from my doors or walls. I dip a damp sponge in baking soda, scrub, and wipe away the grime. Then I dry the door with a microfiber cloth.

3. Stain remover

For my stinky or stained coffee mugs and water bottles, I add baking soda to hot water, shake well, let it sit for a couple of hours, then wash as usual.
