We all have baking soda at home (most of us, at least.) And most of it just sits on our cupboard, untouched, right? But did you know, that baking soda can do you wonders?

In addition to its baking benefits, here we give you a wider array of uses for baking soda.

Removes white and black heads

Just mix some baking soda with water, up until you achieve a paste like consistency. Rinse your face and massage the mixture softly into your skin, (make sure you don’t rub your too hard!), then viola, your skin will feel baby soft afterwards.

Flushes out hair deposits

After a look week of using products on your hair, a deep cleanse is important. Just dissolve an ample amount of baking soda with some water. Massage to your hair, and then shampoo and condition as normal.

Clean your brushes

Not everyone has the time to clean their brushes every day, right? So just like your hair, your brushes are ultimately prone to product build up. Mix some baking soda with some warm water, soak your brushes and wash as normal. This would make sure every trace of makeup residue is removed.

Softens cuticles

Are your cuticles cracked? Dry? Mix a paste with some reliable baking soda and water and massage this to your cuticles. Rub gently. Cracked heels? This would help you too.

Foot Care

Tired? A warm soak for your feet would do the trick. Mix some baking soda with warm water (If you want, scented oils), soak your feet and relax. This is also a good prep step if you do self-pedicures at home.

Unwanted warts

Based on some researches, due to the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory elements in baking soda, it can help getting rid of warts. Mix a spoonful of baking soda with some vinegar to make a thick paste and apply this mixture twice a day. Repeat this for several days up until the stubborn wart is gone.
