If you cook as much as I do, you’re probably also aware that with all those delicious meals comes piles upon piles of dirty dishes. And washing dishes is seriously a bummer.

However, I’ve recently discovered that adding 1 Tbs of baking soda to the dishwater reduces the amount of elbow grease needed. I start the dishwater as I normally would, put in the dishes, and then add that 1 Tbs to the hot water. I let the dishes soak for 5-10 minutes, and the baking soda makes any traces of food or grime just fall off. Washing dishes is so much easier and faster now.

Just something I wanted to share. 🙂 Anyone else know of great baking soda uses?
