Clean Your Fireplace
Yep, you can even clean your fireplace with baking soda. Whether you are just buying a home with an old fireplace or yours needs a good deep cleaning, a mixture of baking soda and water will do wonders. You just have to make a thick paste of baking soda with just enough water to mix.
Apply the paste to the fireplace and use a scrub brush to scour away old stains and odors. The fireplace is a good place for odors to hang around and nobody wants the smell of dirty soot in their homes. This easy and cheap cleaning solution will take away those black stains as well as that sooty odor and leave your entire room looking and smelling great.
This is perfectly safe for brick fireplaces and baking soda can even remove black stains from coals that you may have on your carpet from accidents with the fireplace.
