    Exfoliate and smooth your skin with a baking soda paste.  Mix 3 parts baking  soda to 1 part water.  Rub the paste on any areas of skin that feel dry and  rough, such as knees, elbows, feet and hands.  This will make your skin feel  baby-soft and refreshed.

    Stir 1 tsp. of baking soda into your regular shampoo. Wash your hair as  usual, but leave the shampoo on for several minutes before rinsing. The baking  soda helps to remove soap residue and buildup that can leave your hair looking  greasy.

    Sprinkle a bit of baking soda into oily areas of your hair as a dry shampoo,  if you don’t have time to wash with regular shampoo.  Comb the baking soda  through your hair gently to avoid clumps, and then blow-dry with cool air for  several seconds.

    Scrub your fingernails and toenails with baking soda and water to remove  stains and dirt.  For a thorough nail exfoliation, use an old toothbrush.  This  will leave your nails brighter and cleaner, and your cuticles will feel soft and  smooth.

    Whiten your teeth with a mixture of baking soda, water and a pinch of salt. Brush your teeth with  this mixture to remove stains from your teeth and brighten your smile. You can  also gargle with baking soda to eliminate bad breath. Rinse your mouth with  water to remove any baking soda residue.

    Add half a cup of baking soda to a hot bath for a relaxing soak.  The baking  soda will neutralize body odor, clear away perspiration and soften your skin.   Soaking in baking soda is particularly good for skin with rashes, sores or itchy  dry patches.
