Why does baking soda make such a good cleaner?



  1. 0 Votes

    Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, cleans in multiple ways. Firstly, it is an abrasive compound, so baking soda can cut through grease and tarnished metal to restore metal to a nice luster. Secondly, baking soda forms an alkaline solution in water. Alkaline solutions have a higher pH, so they can help neutralize acidic liquids. This is why baking soda helps reduce odors. Lastly, baking soda is a natural compound and contains no harmful chemicals like many cleaners that include bleach.
