If there is one all-purpose item you’ll want to keep in your home, you’d probably want to go with baking soda.

We use it for cooking and baking, cleaning, and for our health and beauty needs.

Baking soda is incredibly versatile.

According to The Spruce Eats, baking soda is an alkaline compound that produces carbon dioxide gas when combined with an acid, such as vinegar or lemon juice.

This reaction is helpful when cooking, as it helps to leaven things like dough or fried foods. Baking soda is also great for absorbing odors and its scrubbing abilities.
