Step 1: De-Stink Your Feet

If your feet are like mine, they probably get sweaty, and kinda gross after a day of running around. Prevent and solve stinky feet by putting some baking soda in your shoes. This will leave your shoes and feet smelling much fresher, perfect for getting dates!

Step 2: Brush Yo' Grill

Nobody likes kissing a nasty mouth, put some baking soda on that brush and brush away to fresher breath!

Step 3: Clean Your Sink

Before you invite someone over to your house, you might want to do some clean up. baking soda is great for cutting grease from that bacon marathon you had last week.

Step 4: Put Out A Class B Fire

If you decide to impress your date by showing off you mad cooking skills, you might want to have some baking soda on hand to put out the grease fire you might start.


Step 5: Get rid of ants

Ants seem not to like it when you put a trail of baking soda in their path. Do this to prevent them from infesting your house and preventing you from getting dates.

Step 6: Clean Up The Oil Spill

Baking soda, when it reacts with oil turns into soap! What a better way to clean up the oil spill then to pour millions of gallons of baking soda into the gulf. If this actually would work, you would definitely get a date.

(Warning, please don't pour baking soda into the gulf, i don't really know if it will help)

I hope these quick tips help you get more dates then you could ever Imagine!
For the record, baking soda and crude oil do not form soap. It's baking soda and vegetable oil (or animal fat) that makes soap.

Another use you could have included was sprinkling baking soda on your carpet and hoovering it out to deodorise it (rather like your shoes). Makes your house smell clean.

then ≠ than
which is why he wrote than and not then.
No, he wrote "then"
"I hope these quick tips help you get more dates *then* you could ever Imagine!"
"Then" is an adverb. "Than" is a conjunction.

"It (then) is never equivalent to or synonymous with the conjunction 'than'"-wiki

"Imagine" should also not be capitalised.

No offence to the writer of the Instructable; I enjoyed it a lot. I also learned a new method to battle ants, which I have a pet-hate for. I just enjoy a discussion on grammar :)
Wow what was I thinking? Why did I think he wrote "than"? lol
sokay, everyone has stupid moments ;)
Are you a grammar teacher or something?
*whimper*

My mother-in-law taught me this:

If you have a crock pock that sat too long and is all McNasty, fill it with water and baking soda and let it cook for a while. When you pour it out, it will be practically clean.

Since baking soda is a strong abrasive, it is not advisable to brush your teeth more than once a month with a soda. Will destroy your tooth enamel. It is also good to brush your teeth with baking soda over a period of several months rather than every month in order to restore the enamel. Baking soda has a teeth bleaching effect also.
Yep yep. Enamel cant really be replaced either. I lost mine on a tooth from being on IV medications so much soo who knows what the magic cure is;/
baking soda ( a lil bit in water) helps my ulcerative colitis symptoms....do the research im not going to describe them theyre not "dinner table talk"

My dentist office suggest to everyone that they only use baking soda for brushing their teeth. They said that the effect of baking soda actually outweighs other abrasive treatments and toothpaste that are currently available. They have the whitest, strongest teeth in that office, without bleaching.

And that's why a box now sits on the stove. That rachel ray recipe for sesame green beans was doomed to fire. Wait until sesame oil is lightly smoking, and then toss in the (wet) green beans. D'oh! Almost burned down the kitchen, baking soda to the rescue.

Hey nice Instructable but you missed the best baking soda date trick ever! If you got a date but no time to brush then you might want to do this. - 1 Glass of water. - 1tbs of Baking Soda Add and Mix Then use it as mouth wash. Baking Soda neutralizes the funk.
Abslolutely true, I agree and it is so much easy to . I should say a tea spoon in 150-200 cc of water. It's 10 years I do that and I decided on the results to take with me some baking soda almost costantly. It's very easy and extremely inexpensive Since then i also got almost no winter colds but I can't tell if it depends on that. Anyway itworks better with warm water . I advice agaist brushing your teeth with baking soda powder because when you will find out it is abrasive to enamel of yor teeth it may be too late and deadly epensive for sure.

it would work better than what they've been doing...
Isn't that the truth!

I just realized as I'm typing this its been almost a year since you posted this...

You need to be careful about this though. Baking soda is abrasive, and you can seriously damage you teeth. I knew someone who always did this, and asked my dentist about it. In fact, there is a tiny amount of baking soda already in tooth paste.
