2. As a teeth whitener
Baking soda can actually serve as a natural toothpaste, as long as you don’t use it every day. Not only does it clean teeth, it can also polish and whiten teeth too! Add a little baking soda to normal toothpaste every few weeks or so.

Instead of using your usual deodorant, try sprinkling some baking soda on your armpits and see how it goes. This is not recommended for people with sensitive skin though, so use caution.
4. As an exfoliant
