Stay Polished Year Round with Arm and Hammer

Rosy poses with Jeannette Kaplun and Daniela Ramirez
Growing up, one of the products that my mami used the most around the house was baking soda. Now that I'm an adult and have a house of my own, I still use baking soda in everything from my laundry, my cats litter boxes, and inside the refrigerator to neutralize odors.

So I was pretty excited to hear that Arm & Hammer had partnered up with my blogger amiga Carmen from to host a special beauty day at the Shore Club for local bloggers. While there, we learned about even more ways to use baking soda daily (100 ways to be exact!), many made even easier thanks to new packaging not available when I was younger.

One of my favorite new ways to use baking soda is as an exfoliant for my hands and feet. I like treating myself at home to mani's and pedi's when I try out new colors, so this is a great way to start! All you need to do is make a paste of three parts Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to one part water. Carmen suggests you "rub in a gentle, circular motion over hands and fingers to exfoliate and smooth." You finish off by rinsing off with warm water. I recommend using their Baking Soda Shaker which is more granular and comes in a plastic container.

Other Ways To Use Baking Soda At Home:
Soak your brushes & combs to remove build-up and residue
Shake some baking soda in sneakers to eliminate odors
Pain relief from razor burn
Deodorize baby bottles
Dry bath for your dog
Deodorize drains
Remove Carpet Odors
