Top Tips

1. Pour some bicarb into a lady's tight and tie off. 'Hide' in a convenient location to help keep odours at bay. Also ideal for wardrobes and drawers to stop clothes smelling musty.

2. Open a box of bicarb and leave in the fridge. Once the deodorising effect is wearing off, pour them down the kitchen sink to help keep the drain clean & fresh.

3. It’s a mild alkali so it’s effective in neutralising bee stings*.

*In contrast to bee stings, wasp stings are alkaline and therefore should be treated with White Vinegar and NOT Bicarbonate of Soda. If the sting is stuck in the skin, wipe it in the opposite direction with the edge of a credit card to avoid squeezing more of the venom from the sac into the skin.
