I have been using baking soda and apple cide vineagar on my hair for 1 year now, with great results. I tap it on for deodorant also.

Baking Soda is also really good for Heartburn 1/4(I think that's the smallest spoon full)teas baking soda to 4 ounces of water. Slowly sip.

I recently had a really, really bad heart burn, was suffering all day from it, and was actually in tears, when I couldn't take anymore (I thought I was dying that's how bad it was) I went down and talked to my friend Janet that works as a Pharmacist. She quickly made some of this up, before I left the store, I was feeling much better. I had tried Prilosec, Zantac, everything I could think of.

I will definitely try it for drains.  I have a slow drain in my bathroom that could use loosening up!

I use baking soda for much of my house cleaning already. It's great for scrubbing the tub.
