Why use baking soda to mop your floor?

Baking soda is a natural cleaner and deodorizer. So you hit two birds with one stone.

Most importantly, you avoid being exposed to toxic ingredients found in a lot of cleaning products on the market.

Baking soda is non-toxic to pets too. That’s one less worry for us fur-parents.

Warning: Don’t use baking soda on hardwood floors, marble surfaces, and other natural stones. Baking soda is abrasive and may scratch those types of surfaces.


And that’s how to use baking soda to clean floors. I hope that you find this post helpful.
