I was challenged to use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to tackle a large cleaning project around my home. I’ve already successfully used Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to clean my children’s bath toys and stuffed animals as well as to freshen our diaper pail and deodorize our refrigerator. I’ve also tested Arm & Hammer’s Spinbrush and Whitening Toothpaste.
I don’t particularly enjoy large cleaning projects, but I do enjoy eating outside and playing with my kids in the pool. So I decided that I would use the Arm & Hammer Switch & Save Challenge as an opportunity to clean my outdoor patio furniture and my children’s pool toys.
To clean my children’s pool toys and outdoor toys (like plastic trucks, buckets and water table accessories), all I had to do was mix ¼ cup of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda with a quart of warm water. I scrubbed off the larger toys with a rag and then rinsed them with a hose. Not only did it work like a charm, but it was a heck of a lot safer than using a chemical product like bleach around my kids. Small toys can be soaked in the solution and then rinsed off. Since my 4 year old wanted to help, I let him clean the toy boats, trucks and small outdoor toys in a big bucket of warm water and Arm & Hammer baking soda. The baking soda is non-toxic, so I knew it couldn’t hurt him. I appreciated his cleaning assistance, and he liked pretending he was running a car wash!
The ¼ cup baking soda solution also worked for cleaning off my plastic outdoor furniture. Since the cleaning solution had no dangerous chemicals, I let my 4 year old help. He missed plenty of spots, but it was a very easy way to tackle a big project together!
