A Clean Holiday Kitchen with Baking Soda


Why is it that everybody always seems to end up in the kitchen during the holiday get togethers? Here are some tips to give your kitchen an extra-shiny, super-clean look this season.


Clean Pots & Pans

Scrubbing pots and pans is no holiday, but ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda makes it a whole lot easier. It penetrates and helps lift off baked-on, dried-on foods. Shake on a generous amount of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda, add hot water and dish detergent, let it sit for 15 minutes and wash as usual. Keep a shaker full of baking soda by the sink for convenience!


Clean Coffee and Tea Pots

Holiday entertaining? Here's a quick pick-me-up! Remove coffee and tea stains and eliminate bitter off-tastes by washing mugs and coffee makers in a solution of 1/4 cup ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda in 1 quart of warm water. For stubborn stains, try soaking overnight in the ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda solution and detergent or scrubbing with ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda on a clean, damp sponge.


Polish Silver Flatware

Make your silverware shine like tinsel—fast! Use a Baking Soda paste made with three parts ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to one part water. Rub onto the silver with a clean cloth or sponge. Rinse thoroughly and dry for shining sterling silver and silver-plated serving pieces. You'll be polished and ready to go for your next holiday party!


Cleaning Floors

For floors so clean you’ll floor your guests! Remove dirt and grime (without unwanted scratch marks!) from no wax and tile floors using 1/2 cupARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda in a bucket of warm water – mop and rinse clean for a sparkling floor. For unsightly scuff marks, use ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda on a clean, damp sponge, then rinse. Great for high-traffic areas and after holiday parties too!
