    Default Bathe with bicarb soda?

    I have washed my hair with baking soda & rinsed with apple cider vinegar for a week and the result is good. I'm wondering if I could use them for body too. Has anyone done it or heard of it?

    I've read that bi carb is good for bathing babies and gentle on skin so I don't see why you couldn't use it on yourself I also brush my teeth with it, it whitens and removes stains.

    Nice tip for brushing teeth. Do you still use toothpaste or just bicarb? Thanks!

    I use bi carb soda to clean DH cradle cap. I think babies are much cleaner than adults, I mean we sweat more and are exposed more to dust etc so not sure if it's enough. Maybe I'll give it a go.

    Do you just make it into a paste?

    It's not necessary to still use toothpaste, however sometimes i do and then finish with a bi carb scrub and gargle. Good for freshening breath too I haven't tried bathing in it but it is a pretty powerful cleaner, i guess you'd just have to try it and see how it goes. Maybe i will too!

    I used to use Bi-carb in DD3's bath all the time when she was in nappies - she was prone to nappy rash and it really helped clear it up. It always made the water feel nice, sort of "soft".

    Shinebrite - do you just make a past for your face and rub it in? Do you leave it on for long?

    great tip shinebrite! i normally put a paste of panadol on my zits but it doesn't always help.

    would be easier to use bi carb with a bath than a shower but water here is too expensive

    I just mix it with my natural face cleanser.

    TMI BUT
    I also used it with a natural soap that has tea tree oil in it for some thrush, worked!! I also put the contents of an inner health plus capsule on down there and GONE!!
