    Can you use it to make laundry soap? I made my first batch 2 weeks ago and LOVE it. I have a front loader HQ.

    This is an easy fix. Only buy the baking kind. I used baking soda (baking kind) in the frig and freezer long before they sold a special box for that use. So buy the baking only and use it for baking and the fridge. I open the spout area of the box carefully, leaving the flap, then in a month, I hold the flap shake the box and put it back in the frig. Then I use it in the wash.

    It is really good for cleaning gunk off cars ( but doesn't leave a shine) and also for cleaning grime in the kitchen and bathroom.

    I did the same thing but realized what it said before I pulled it off the grocery shelf.

    actually I don't believe the whole "Deodorizes your fridge and freezer" racket - baking soda does not work that way. Now if you make a paste with water and smear it on something, it will clean off odors (like plastic containers). Also I like it for a mild scouring powder.

    Just another racket to sell more baking soda IMO. Like unflavored gelatin was supposed to be good for your houseplants and your fingernails. People are doing less baking and they are certainly using less unflavored gelatin, so the companies come up with "NEW" uses.

    Baking soda and white vinegar are my go to products for cleaning. Baking soda and white vinegar mixed together in a paste is great for cleaning sinks, tubs etc in place of scouring cleanser. Baking soda in wash freshens wash and you can use white vinegar instead of fabric softener. The clothes don't come out smelling like vinegar. I use white vinegar to remove mildew and mold from the stucco on the outside of my house instead of bleach. The list could go on and on...

I put it in the pre-wash section.
    Hmmm. I going to do this. Forgot about it. I have never been happy with my front load HE washer cause everything stinks, but maybe this will help.
    The expert's mind has no room to learn while the beginner's mind is free to know everything....
