Baking soda is one of those staple items that everyone has in their pantry. We use it for baking and for use as a thickening agent in sauces and gravy. However, a little-known advantage of baking soda is making living with pets a little easier to manage.
10. Dry Bath
Your cat hates baths, but there are times when he needs a little TLC. You can use baking soda to give your cat or dog a quick cleaning.
9. Clean Dog Toys
Use a little baking soda on a damp rag to clean your dog’s toys.
8. Sweeten Rugs and Carpets
Homes with pets tend to have a smell that people recognize. You can sprinkle some baking soda and let it sit a few minutes before vacuuming to reduce that smell.
7. Cleaning up After an Accident
Sometimes, your cat or dog can’t make it to the litter box or outside; use baking soda to help clean the mess and neutralize the smell.
