The (crayon) writing on the wall
Have your kids ever taken a crayon to the wall?? Mine have! When I first became a mommy I used to keep up with the marks pretty regularly. But lately... things have gotten out of hand. Marks like this are all over the house:
To demonstrate the power of baking soda I first tried cleaning the area with a damp rag and soap. In the end the crayon was lighter, but it was still totally there.
Like I said, when I was a younger parent I would take care of such things fairly quickly. I tried all of my cleaners back then and none of them worked. If you've ever heard that magic erasers were made from baking soda, then you've heard correctly.
All I do is take a damp rag, dip it into baking soda and scrub the marks off the wall:
To show you the power of baking soda, you may see my kitchen sink before picture:
I sprinkled the sink with baking soda. I wet my rag in a different sink, then scrubbed away.
See how nice and shiny?:
What kind of things do you use baking soda for?
