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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
